The Mark Hughes Foundation will be the recipient of funds raised at the inaugural Evolution Charity Cup at Surfest Newcastle 2018. The Mark Hughes Foundation raises much-needed funds to promote research, heighten awareness and support brain cancer patients (children and adults) and their families within the community.
Evolution Advisers has previously sponsored the SurfAid Cup for the past two years and raised over $120,000 for the not-for-profit humanitarian organisation.
In 2018, that demonstrated fundraising ability will be focused on a not-for-profit local charity doing incredible work right here in the Hunter.
The corporate tag-team style surfing event means that local businesses can ride the waves for a local charity that’s making big waves in providing funds for medical research into brain cancer treatment and cure.
The event will comprise 20 teams made up of employees or business connections of registered companies plus one wild card surfer. Each team will undertake fundraising to help achieve an overall target donation of $100,000 to the Mark Hughes Foundation.
Evolution Director Darren Glover says the Evolution Charity Cup is an opportunity for combining business and pleasure with the added bonus of supporting a very worthwhile cause.
“We’ve been blown away by the support of Newcastle businesses over the last two years and we’re excited to now be directing those funds locally to the Mark Hughes Foundation. This city loves its sport and has a generous spirit, so we see the event as a perfect fit between business, sport and charity,” Mr Glover said.
The event will take place at Dixon Park on Friday 23 February 2018. Company registration for the event is $400 which includes an official event t-shirt, lunch, prizes and an after party at Dixon Park Surf Club.
