We raised $37, 444 for TKCP

Case Study: THE KIDS CANCER PROJECT

The Kids Cancer Project (TKCP) are an independent national charity supporting childhood cancer research. Since 1993, thanks to strong community support, we have been able to contribute tens of millions of dollars to scientific studies to help children with many types of cancer.

In support of the community, Sharp EIT, one of the nation’s leading companies specialising in IT services and technology solutions, worked in collaboration with TKCP to raise funds for the incredible cause.

It Began

Sharp EIT Sales Manager Tony Savino first met Owen Finegan back in 2019 where they hit it off at one of Sharp EIT partners sporting events. Shortly after that Tony completed an assessment on TKCP office printers and was not only able to upgrade their devices but save the charity a considerable amount of money.

Sharp EIT’s involvement

Since then, Sharp EIT has continued to support TKCP by providing products, sporting experiences to utilise for their raffle and auctions at events to assist in raising funds.

On June 3rd 2022 Sharp EIT held a State of Origin Charity Luncheon at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia with an objective to raise $15k for TKCP.

Managing Director, Mario Bernatovic said “Sharp EIT has a history of supporting local businesses and the community, it was an honour to be able to raise funds for TKCP at our recent Luncheon. As a father, my heart goes out to those families battling this disease and I am delighted that the funds will be directed to support research led outcomes that improve the treatment of cancer in kids. ”

Owen Finegan, CEO TKCP said,

We are delighted to have the support of Sharp EIT, who are always looking for new and innovative ways to support The Kids’ Cancer Project. The success of the State of Origin charity luncheon is a credit to Sharp EIT and their commitment to supporting communities

The Results

Thanks to the 150 people that attend the event Sharp EIT raised $37,224 smashing the target of $15K!

Owen Finegan, CEO TKCP said,

” The support from Sharp EIT team allows The Kids’ Cancer Project to support bold science with the greatest chance of clinical success to improve childhood cancer treatments.

We are delighted to have the support of Sharp EIT, who are always looking for new and innovative ways to support The Kids’ Cancer Project. The success of the State of Origin charity luncheon is a credit to Sharp EIT and their commitment to supporting communities.”

We look forward to growing the relationship while creating positive impacts for Australian children.
