Rally for Relief to help flood victims

QER is pleased to announce that the final tally raised through Tennis Australia’s Rally for Relief flood appeal is more than $2.66 million.

The Appeal itself raised a total of $1.334 million, which was matched dollar for dollar by QER to reach the final figure.

QER chief executive officer, Pearce Bowman, travelled to Melbourne to present a cheque to Tennis Australia, and congratulate officials and players on the initiative.

Two-thirds of the proceeds from the Appeal will go to the Queensland Premier’s flood appeal, with one-sixth of the funds each going to the Salvation Army appeal and the Victorian Red Cross flood appeal.

QER would like to thank all those who contributed towards making the Rally for Relief such a success.
