2011 - A year of Community support

NEWS ITEM: 03.01.12

It’s been an involved and generous year for The Willoughby, with a diverse range of donations being made throughout the community. The hotel has a long history of sponsoring local sporting teams and community events, but never to the financial extent or breadth of focus which has been seen this year. At the conclusion of the calendar year, we have seen over $10,000 of donations go out to sporting associations, at both junior and senior levels, various public schools, and cultural groups, including the locally based Austrian Yodeling Society.

September saw our inaugural hosting of the Willoughby Public School fundraiser. This event closed the entire hotel in order to host a James Bond inspired benefit. Between both levels we had a series of auctions, silent and live, as well as substantial donations of food and beverage by the hotel to help f acilitate the goodwill. The success of the night, which featured more than 400 guests, raised well over $50,000 for the school and a generous serving of simple diversion for the groups of parents who had to be coaxed to leave the party.

In addition to an assortment of small fundraising benefits, typically represented by gift vouchers for raffles or donation enticements, The Willoughby has also gifted cash amounts of $2000 to local sporting clubs Roseville Cricket Club and Chatswood Rugby Club. Similarly, the hotel has opened its doors and the use of its facilities to many of these clubs, with the hotel providing function space and catering for an assortment of events and administrative proceedings. Most significantly, Chatswood Rugby, in absence of a clubhouse, have been provided use of the hotel for events ranging from prize givings to their recent AGM. An engagement with these clubs furthers the belief held here at The Willoughby; that the local community is the basis of our pub, and responsible support of beneficial initiatives such as these strengthen our ties with our patrons. As a locals' pub, we understand the importance of fostering our involvement with the community and its associations, and hope to continue to do so in the coming year.
