Corporate Committee

The Corporate Fundraising Committee was established in 2000 to support the funding of equipment and services to benefit Northern Health through fundraising activities.

The Committee has a strong focus on encouraging support from the local community, including local business, groups and individuals.

The Committee’s first major project was the co-ordination of a charity house and land auction at Roxburgh Park, in conjunction with the Urban Land Authority and Orbit Homes which has subsequently resulted in four successful house and land projects. Other fundraising activities include an annual fundraising dinner and auction, Kilmore golf day, Josie Minniti’s Fun Group Dinner, Oaks Day luncheon, the Northern Health Fun Run and other fundraising activities involving the local community.
