Bushfire Appeal – How to Donate


Bushfire Appeal – How to Donate

Club Events

The  ABF Council has given their support to the bushfire appeal by endorsing clubs and state bodies running a maximum of a 2 session B4 fund raising event to take place before the 31st December 2013 with the cost of the masterpoints for such event being waived by the ABF.

We ask that any club or organisation who elects to run this event, sends an email to the ABF National Marketing Officer (Sandra Mulcahy) at marketing@abf.com.au to let us know what funds were raised so that we can keep a barometer on our web site.

Any specific details about the running of this charity event, will be made available by the Manager of our Masterpoint Centre, Dave Weston, however he has provided the below as a minimum.

Clubs will need to send their awards to their respective State Masterpoint Secretaries (SMPS), who will then process the awards similar to any other congress.  Dave has set up event code 91B – Bushfire Appeal, against club 9-937 ABF Charity Events.  The SMPS can then upload the awards against this club, with this event code.  Then the cost of the awards will simply be billed to the ABF, so clubs will not get charged.

We wish you every success with the roll-out of this initiative and look forward to congratulating you all on the total amount raised.
