We feel as a successful member of the Gold Coast community it is only fitting to give something back to the community that has helped us achieve what we are today.
We have supported the Queensland Muscular Dystrophy Association for 16 years. The cure for Muscular Dystrophy will also cure many other genetic diseases and with any luck could be possible before the end of the year. Each year we hold a Gala Ball and Charity Auction and to date we have raised $2.5 million.
The Gold Coast beach plays an important role in the lifestyle we live and we believe it is necessary to keep these beaches safe. Therefore, for the past 3 years we have helped raise much needed funds for the Surfers Paradise Life Saving Club which has enabled them to purchase rescue equipment. We have raised excess of $400,000. This year at our annual Sportsman’s lunch and Auction we raised in excess of $40,000.
We believe the cultural aspect of any community is vital and to that end we provide substantial financial support through a Benefactors Programme for the Gold Coast Arts Centre.

Variety Club through its Annual Gold Variety Bash
