CAZA Kids Fundraiser Auction 2018

As those connected with CAZA BJJ will know, we recently ran a fundraiser auction online. The money raised is goings towards sending some of the CAZA kids to compete at the 2018 Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Pan-Pacs in Melbourne later this month. We would like to thank those who bid on the various auctions, and we’d especially like to thank those who donated items.

Most of the items were provided courtesy of CAZA adult members, however, we also had a joy flight offered by Dale Leo’s boss, Trevor Baker. Trevor has no direct association with our club. Together, these donators put their hand up to offer their time and services in a selfless act of support for our young members.

Here is a list of the donators (in no particular order):

  • Eumundi Automotive (Brady Jansen) – $200 vehicle repairs voucher.
  • FloCryo (James & Ellie Bermingham) – three 30 minute compression sessions.
  • James Thorne Photography (James Thorne) – two-hour couples photography session.
  • Stand Up Paddle Noosa (James Howard Clarke) – stand up paddle tour of Noosa River.
  • Sunny Coast Signs & Wraps (Cheyne Douglas) – $120 worth of business stationery printing.
  • Functional Fitness (Craig Rolleston) – two personal training sessions.
  • Hannay Art (Dan Hannay) – custom ‘true life’ artwork.
  • Roll Armour (Cheyne Douglas) – BJJ no-gi shorts and rashie.
  • Reece Purser – two one hour Muay Thai kickboxing private lessons.
  • Trevor Baker – one-hour joy flight in his private plane touring the sunshine coast.
  • Yoshi Hasegawa – three one hour private BJJ lessons.

Thank you! This auction raised $1480.00 all up and goes a long way towards offsetting the costs of getting the boys down to Melbourne and registered for the tournament.

This auction was organised with short notice by our big blue belt, Dale Leo. Dale, Yoshi, CAZA and the boy’s parents truly appreciate the response from both item providers and the bidders who made this work.

Beyond the fundraiser auction

There have also been two other fundraisers run within the gym over the past month. The 100 numbers boards, costing $2 per entry, have been posted on the gym wall. One is still live as the post goes live (be quick)!

The two number board prizes have been provided by:

  • Noosa Meat Centre – $50 meat tray.
  • Jodie and Woogie Marsh – $30 Pardon’s voucher, a bottle of champagne & 24 coconut water.

Each of these boards raises a further $200, so we would also like to thank these prize providers for boosting the fund even further.

Melbourne, here they come!

This series of fundraisers reaffirms the positive club spirit here at CAZA and the support we get from the Noosa area community. We can only get stronger from here.

We are certain that our young competitors will do CAZA Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and the Noosa area proud down in Melbourne. Good luck boys!
