Spotlight on a corporate partner - Electrolux
Electrolux has generously come to our aid, supplying vital fridges and freezers used to store thousands of tissue samples that continue, many years later, to provide crucial windows into cell microbiology. The donation of fridges, microwaves and large chest freezers has helped CCIA fit out the new Lowy Cancer Research Centre to create a start-of-the-art research facility.
At the 2011 Diamond Ball Electrolux contributed a staggering $185,000 to CCIA. Electrolux firstly distinguished their support of CCIA by being the gold VIP event sponsor of Diamond Ball. They then pledged $10k worth of Electrolux prizes to live and silent auctions but not before spending $70,000 on a Channel 7 media package. But the generosity didn't stop there, John Brown, managing director of Electrolux, then purchased a Guava Cytometer worth $95,000 on behalf of CCIA. Once again Electrolux showed not only that they take their support of CCIA seriously but that they take their role as a good corporate citizen seriously and their largess brings CCIA that much closer to a cure. Thank you Electrolux!
