Getting Muddy for Multiple Sclerosis

Author: Hoshizaki Lancer / Published Date: 19 December 2012

Categories: Company News & Media

You might think getting muddy is not your normal activity. Well, you're right, but Natalie Walker from Hoshizaki Lancer's Supply Chain Team in Adelaide participated in the Bernie Lewis MS Mud Run a few Sunday's ago on 2 December 2012.

Held to raise money to support those affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS), this event is an obstacle course, where participants run through military style obstacles, in mud! MS is a long- term disease of the Central Nervous System and is the most common neurological condition that affects young Australians. The cause is not yet known but it is thought that genetic and environmental factors that can affect the immune system are involved. The money raised will help those affected by MS to live as normal life as possible.

Natalie's Team, ‘The Mud Slingers' raised $1,296.00 – as you can imagine Natalie was very grateful for the support of her workmates at Hoshizaki Lancer and all who donated for this great cause.

Congratulations Natalie – you have done a stellar job at supporting a great cause and helping spread the word amongst your fellow Hoshizaki Lancer colleagues.

We hope you have a shower before seeing you in the office again!

Putting some faces to the names of the winners of the U.G.L.Y. Bartending competition for 2012.

After a month of battling it out to raise the most money for the Leukaemia Foundation during October and November of 2012, all around the country the top U.G.L.Y. bartenders were presented with their prizes at various events.

As well as presenting the winners with their trophies and congratulating them on their efforts, we are also delighted to award each of the winners' venues with one of our Hoshizaki ice machines worth $7,500!

We'd like to remind everyone again that this year, bartenders all around Australia raised a total of $1,167,982 to help Australian families impacted by blood cancer, just by taking part in the fundraiser. Their support will greatly assist the Leukaemia Foundation in their ongoing research into and support for patients and their families affected by leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma diagnosis.

Our Managing Director, Joe Thorp, has presented a few of the winners with their trophies - let's have a look at the imagery from across the country!

Here are some of the South Australian participants who helped to raise $205,143 (below) as well as Helen and Michael from the Leukaemia Foundation.

As well as the highest participant for SA, Hayley Harvey from Royal Oak Hotel in Clarendon raised $12,111. She was handed her trophy at the Rob Roy hotel a couple of weeks ago from Michael from the Leukaemia Foundation (below)

Next up is Nothern Territory - who Joe Thorp, our Managing Director (middle) had the chance to attend! He is accompanied by Belinda Marshall (owner) from Emerald Spring Roadhouse raised $60,336 (left) and Dallus Hoppe (right) with the U.G.L.Y. Bartender 2012 NT award. Belinda was also the winner of the inaugural Michael Abraham Memorial Trophy. This trophy is awarded to the highest overall fundraised in dedication our New Zealand Manager – Michael Abraham – who lost his battle with cancer during April 2012. We wish to congratulate Belinda on a truly outstanding effort for this competition. (below)

As for Tasmania, they managed to raise $71,041. The highest participant, Jodie Hall (owner) from Kendals Hotel raised $16,220 who is pictured below.

Back to the eastern seaboard, in Victoria, Barney Spiers (owner) of Shamrock Hotel raised $12,111 and the state raised $164,920. Stellar effort! Here is the crew at their presentation event, with Barney pictured on the far left.

We have also done a recap on the QLD presentations, which can be found here, which shows a photo of their highest participant, Karyn Williamson from the Cooyar Hotel.

There are plenty more photos to come that will cover off our Western Australian and New South Wales participants. These will be coming soon! Stay tuned.

Stay tuned for more details to come about the 2013 U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year competition - be sure to subscribe to our eNewsletter for updates.

Our Men of Movember

Author: Hoshizaki Lancer / Published Date: 11 December 2012

Categories: Company News & Media

We have had a busy few months of fundraising as the year of 2012 comes to a close. Starting with the U.G.L.Y. Bartending Competition, then one of our staff participating in MS Mud Run (more on that coming soon), and now a summary of the men folk from Hoshizaki Lancer growing their ‘flavor savors'.

Movember is an annual fundraiser with the aim to raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health.

Brett Thomson, our State Manager in QLD (pictured below), has raised a total of $500 for the cause. Also - our Production and Warehouse Manager in Adelaide, Matt Fletcher (pictured above) did manage to annoy his wife Kerry, which we are sure all fellow Australian women can empathize with! We think he looks rather dashing.

To date, Aussie Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have raised more than $17.8 million, of $86 million globally. With a record number of participants, this figure is expected to exceed 2011's global fundraising tally of $124 million.

For more information on Movember, visit the Movember website.
