The Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs will be having a ‘night in to get the word out’ during their match against the St George Illawarra Dragons on Friday night in support of White Ribbon Australia’s campaign to eliminate violence against women and children
All corporate areas will be given a White Ribbon theme, White Ribbon Ambassador and Nova FM Newsreader Matt de Groot will address guests in the Chairman’s Lounge during the evening, White Ribbon Ambassador Reece Mastin will conduct the coin toss and provide entertainment on the night and the Club will make a $30,000 donation to support White Ribbon’s vital work in delivering education programs work in schools across Canterbury, Auburn, Liverpool and Bankstown areas .
In the lead up to the game, specially branded Bulldogs/White Ribbon merchandise will be on sale in the Bulldogs shop, with funds raised to go towards Bulldogs in the Community violence prevention programmes.
“As part of having a ‘night in to get the word out’, we want every person attending our game against the Dragons or watching on tv to walk away inspired to ‘speak out’ if they become aware of attitudes or behaviour that promotes violence against women,” said Bulldogs CEO Raelene Castle.
“White Ribbon Australia have played a large role in forcing the issue of violence against women to become part of the national conversation and the Bulldogs are proud to support the work they are doing around primary prevention.”
