RSL Club bands together for bandanna day

November 02, 2017

Corowa RSL Club chefs Geoffrey Finnemore, Chandra Shah, Liam Whyte and Paul Burke get ready to cook up a storm while sporting their bandannas.

The staff at Corowa RSL Club was united in their approach to raise funds for a good cause on Friday – National Bandanna Day.

Everywhere you looked around the club on Friday, there were staff sporting the bandannas to support CanTeen in their work with young Australians battling cancer.

RSL boss Peter Norris said the idea to support the fundraiser came from one of the club’s staff members, Raquel Lavis.

“I thought it was a great idea, not only a good opportunity to make a contribution to young people living with cancer, but also for our team of staff to rally together in support of such a great cause,” he said.

Mr Norris said $1 from every drink sold at the bar on the day would be donated to the cause, with bandannas also sold on the day.

“We expect to raise several thousand dollars from the day, in the big picture it isn’t much, however, we have decided as a business and a team of people, we will continue to identify opportunities where we can contribute to worthwhile causes,” he said.

Mr Norris said the club’s brigade of chefs work incredibly hard and it had been particularly pleasing to see them embrace the idea along with the rest of the team.
