Events & Fundraising
The South Australian Games Appeal Committee was established in 1994 by the South Australian Olympic Council, when under the current chairman, Mr Robert Gerard AO, a number of corporate leaders came together to raise funds towards the Sydney Olympic Games.
Such was the success of the Committee’s fundraising that post Sydney Olympics contributions were also made to the Commonwealth and Paralympic Associations. Since then the Games Appeal has made an extraordinary commitment towards all three Games Committees by providing significant funds.
In 2003 the Games Appeal was presented a concept to develop an exclusive membership for discerning corporate leaders who share the SA Games Appeal Committee’s pride and passion to support our countries athletes.
With support from the Australian Olympic Committee the Quarter Club was established to underpin the fundraising objectives of the Games Appeal. The Quarter Club provides members business to business prospects, unparalleled networking opportunities, and some of the finest corporate hospitality available in South Australia. Members also have the chance to meet with the Nations most heralded athletes, from Olympic champions to emerging stars.
