Evolution is getting ready to ride the waves for a good cause at the sixth Evolution Charity Cup, set
to take place at Merewether Beach on Friday, March 8th, 2024. This event has become an essential
part of Surfest 2024, promising a fantastic day for business and surfing alike while making a positive
impact on our community.
In the past, Evolution Advisers proudly sponsored SurfAid, raising over $120,000 for their
humanitarian efforts. They also stepped up for The Mark Hughes Foundation, contributing an
impressive $350,000 to support vital brain cancer research. Now, in 2024, the Evolution Charity Cup
is channelling its fundraising energy toward ‘Hope in a Suitcase.’ This will be the second year funds
raised are donated to Hope in a Suitcase. Having seen the impact, the $55,000 rasied had on our
local community following the 2023 event charity cup organisers wanted to do more.
If you want to be part of this incredible initiative and support a remarkable local charity -‘Hope in a
Suitcase’ anyone is invited to get involved.
When Rachael Clancy, the Founder and CEO of Hope in a Suitcase, learned that her organisation was
selected again as the beneficiary for the 2024 fundraising efforts, she shared her excitement, saying,
“Being the recipient of donations raised by the Evolution Charity Cup allowed Hope in a Suitcase to
continue empowering the lives of children entering out-of-home care throughout 2023 and beyond.
This event is a chance to create a wave of change in the foster-care system, transforming the
experience from one of embarrassment, hurt, shame, fear, and insecurity – symbolized by a plastic
bag – to one filled with hope and self-worth – symbolized by a suitcase. Together, we can empower
these children, equipping them for the journey ahead and fostering resilience and hope for their
future, all while having some fun on a surfboard. The news we would receive funding for a second
year in 2024 makes me so excited.”
The 2024 Evolution Charity Cup remains a tag team event, and it’s an excellent opportunity for
businesses to come together in the spirit of camaraderie and giving back. Teams are composed of
employees, associates, and connections of the business, some are even lucky enough to include a
pro surfer each registering and pledging their support. These teams will compete not only in the
water but also in the fundraising arena, with prizes awaiting those who excel in both areas.
The Evolution Charity Cup is organised and funded by Evolution Advisers because they see the 2024
event as another unique chance to blend business, with corporate responsibility and a little fun, all
while supporting Surfest and a very deserving charity Hope in a Suitcase. Join us on this exciting
journey of making a positive impact and catching some waves – it’s a win-win for everyone involved!
