Auction Services is a proud supporter of Camp Quality, contributing each month with a regular donation and assisting the organisation with fundraising events.
Co-Director Rocky Bartolotto was given the privilege of being charity auctioneer at the 2013 Arnott’s Foundation Gala Dinner & Charity Auction held at the Hilton Hotel, Sydney with all funds raised from auction items going directly to Camp Quality.
“Hi Rocky, just following up from last Friday’s Gala dinner. With your help as the auctioneer we raised a record of $153,000, so thank you for being part of that with us! The night turned a little crazy when we started to run behind schedule, plus it was noted we had a tough crowd this year, but in the end the results needed were delivered by you. From all of us thank you so much. ” Shirley Errazo, Sales Coordinator & Administrator, The Arnott’s Foundation
What is Camp Quality?
Camp Quality is the children’s family cancer charity. Their purpose is to create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia. The services provided are for children (0-13 years) living with cancer and their families to help them build optimism and resilience. They support families no matter where they live in Australia, throughout each stage of their cancer journey.
Camp Quality has been operating since 1983. Their motto is ‘laughter is the best medicine’. Their programs create a supportive, resilient and optimistic community for families living with cancer. At Camp Quality, fun flows through everything they do.
Camp Quality teams are located in every state and territory across Australia. With the support of 2,500 volunteers, their services are estimated to reach 1 in 3 children living with cancer in Australia. Their goal is to ensure every child living with cancer and their families have equal access to their programs nationwide. You, too, can donate money to Camp Quality by clicking here.
Some of the other key charity events that Rocky has been involved in as the auctioneer include, The Buzz Ball for Diabetes Australia which raised; $160,000; and an event for the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation, hosted at the residence of Lucy and Malcolm Turnbull (MP), which raised $110,000.
