Yalumba has always taken an active role in its community, and each year we seek a small number of local groups that we can assist in a big way. At Christmas time our 'home base' in Angaston focuses on our local community of the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.
For 2003 our fundraising activity was DUNK THE DIRECTOR! Bounties were set for each of our five Executive Directors, and if the targets were met we would see the Directors each take the chair over a water-dunking tank. The chance to throw the ball was auctioned off on the day to all employees to raise even more money. Thanks to generous bids and accurate throwing arms, all Directors were Dunked!
Yalumba is very thankful for the support of not just their employees but also many business associates and friends who pledged funds (everybody wanted to see our Directors Dunked).
The $12,600.25 raised from Dunk the Director has been donated to the Barossa Leisure Options New Bus Appeal. We hope our efforts have set them well on their way to seeing the bus on the road.
