Mater Foundation lucky to be supported by Sea and City

Mater Foundation lucky to be supported by Sea and City

Kevin Gong holds Mater deep in his heart, with his three sons all born at Mater Mothers’ Hospital, and the eldest having spent 100 days at Mater Mothers’ Neonatal Critical Care Unit, where he received around-the-clock care specialist care.

Kevin is not a stranger to fundraising, having hosted two fundraisers in the past, and has raised almost $40,000 in support of Mater Little Miracles. Kevin is an incredible advocate of giving back to the community, and approached his network, Sea and City, to also give to Mater.

In February, Sea and City Properties, along with Sea and City Holding Group, held their first fundraiser in support of Mater Little Miracles, thanks to Kevin’s advocacy.

The fundraiser was a huge team effort, with all 150 attendees pitching in to make the event a success. Funds were raised through a raffle ticket system, as well as donations on the night.

In Chinese culture, the number eight is a special number, symbolising prosperity and luck. Sea and City made additional donations to help bring the total funds raised on the night to a purposeful $8800. Mater Foundation certainly feels ‘lucky’ to have such an incredibly generous community behind them.

A huge thank you to Jeremy Sun, CEO of Sea and City Holding Group and Leo Fu, CEO of Sea and City Properties, and all their staff for helping to give all babies born at Mater the best possible start in life.
