Local businesses bring success to Gala

‘Celebration of Life’ raises over $84,000 for the LifeFlight Foundation


Thank you to all those who joined us at the Toowoomba LifeFlight Foundation Benefit Gala proudly presented by Hutchinson Builders for an evening 
‘celebrating life’. Together we raised over $84,000 for the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue service and helped fund many lifesaving airlifts for residents across the south-west. Naming Right’s Partners, Hutchinson Builders presented the evening and Managing Director, Greg Quinn gave a welcome address to the crowd and encouraged everyone to dig deep throughout the night.  

Rugby sporting legend and Queensland ‘golden boy’, Wally Lewis was the Master of Ceremonies (MC) for the event and captured the true spirit of LifeFlight’s aeromedical service which brings emergency care to Queenslanders in need. 

Thank you to all the local businesses who generously donated prizes, purchased tables or contributed on the night. A special mention must be extended to our ‘Celebrating Life’ partners – GK Lawson, major prize partners – NAB, Ryley Jewelry Creations, LJ Hooker Toowoomba, iOR Petroleum and Thales.

Many local businesses showed their support by purchasing a table at the event which helped raise vital funds for the LifeFlight Foundation.    

With your support we can continue to save thousands of lives and bring emergency aeromedical care to those in need. Thank you for making this community rescue service a reality for Queenslanders across the south-west and beyond. 

It’s not too late to book a table at one of our upcoming LifeFlight Foundation Benefit Galas at the Sunshine Coast on March 23 or in Brisbane on May 12. By purchasing a table, your employees, family and friends will get to witness firsthand the lifesaving impact of your donations and support of our rescue helicopter service. Our VIPs (Very Important Patients) will share their inspiring stories of rescue and encourage us to ‘celebrate life’ each and every day.
