Tennis ace serves it up for Junction

Junction Support Services is proud to be joining Albury Wodonga Cancer Centre as beneficiaries of a charity auction dinner and tennis challenge – featuring six-time Grand Slam winner Dylan Alcott – that has been organised by the team at ANZ Albury Wodonga.

Alcott, a Paralympian and recent winner of the US Open, will headline the charity auction dinner and tennis challenge in Wodonga on Thursday 4 October.

Good and services, including travel and food will be up for auction at the charity dinner.

The tennis challenge is a corporate event in which businesses will have the chance to play with or against Dylan at a cost of $50 per person.

ANZ Regional Executive Conor Noonan said the event, which last year raised more than $72,000, was another chance for the local business community to support two organisations that contribute greatly to the region’s social and economic strength.

“We’re proud to support both the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre and Junction Support Services which provide essential community services for people struggling with illness or poverty,” he said.

“We’ve been delighted with the response from local business owners, which has also inspired ANZ’s own CEO Shayne Elliott to donate a boardroom lunch that he will host at our Melbourne headquarters.”

Junction Support Services chairperson Sandra Dalton said: “Every cent that is donated to Junction will go to support local children, young people, adults and families in need because of family violence, homelessness and disadvantage. Thank you to the ANZ Albury Wodonga team for your compassion and commitment to supporting people who are doing it tough.”

A not-for-profit organisation, Junction works with people across north-east Victoria to support them to achieve their potential.

Sandra thanked businesses who are “friends of Junction” and have donated products and services to support the charity auction, including Lindenwarrah at Milawa, The Base Collective – which sells its organic magnesium skincare range worldwide – Office Choice Wodonga (17 High Street), Delux Cutz (13 Stanley Street, Wodonga) and Peards Wodonga (90 Elgin Boulevard).

Tickets to the charity auction dinner on Thursday 4 October at The Clubhouse Bar and Bistro in Wodonga are $150 per person, which includes a three-course dinner, drinks, entertainment and the opportunity to hear from Dylan Alcott.
