Royal Enfield Donates a Continental GT 650 for a Good Cause
$700,000 raised at the 30th Anniversary Gala Ball for the RMHC.
On Friday 15th July, Royal Enfield Australia and Urban Moto Imports were able to donate a beautiful Continental GT 650 Mister Clean for the 30th Anniversary Gala Ball for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), raising $13,000 towards this great charity.
This is the 6th year that Royal Enfield and Urban Moto Imports have participated at such an important event, where money raised assists those families and individuals through difficult times.
“We’re grateful that we could assist in some way that can help children and families during some of their most difficult times. Our small contribution will hopefully help towards the incredible support that RMHC continue to provide, to those that need it most.” – Joseph Elasmar, CEO Urban Moto Imports.
STAR STUDDED EVENT
The Victorian Gala Ball was hosted by Seven News Melbourne TV presenter and journalist, Rebecca Maddern, and VIC Ball Chairman, Barry Fitzgerald, and featured an electric performance from actor and singer-songwriter Rob Mills, with other special guests in attendance such as the Hon. Matthew Guy.
