The Gold Coast Titans announced at the 2015 Season Launch that the vacant naming rights sponsor position on front of the playing jersey will be given to Ronald McDonald House until the position is filled.
It means the Titans will run onto Cbus Super Stadium for the 2015 opener against Wests Tigers on Saturday March 7 with the charity’s well-identified branding, clearly visible.
The club has had an ongoing strong relationship with Ronald McDonald House (south-east Queensland) as part of its commitment to the community and is delighted to provide this significant exposure to such a well-respected cause.
“We will continue to contribute to the community of the Gold Coast by donating the front of jersey branding to Ronald McDonald House,” announced chairman Rebecca Frizelle at last night’s launch.
“This will provide further awareness to a charity that provides an amazing support to so many of our Gold Coast families. This is our way of saying thank you to the Gold Coast.
“This partnership will remain in place until we secure a naming rights sponsor”, said Frizelle.
Representatives of Ronald McDonald House – Steve Whitehead and Mike Atkins were on hand to accept the jersey with emblazoned with the charity’s logo.
“Ronald McDonald Gold Coast are extremely proud of the relationship and partnership with the Gold Coast Titans. We have had a very close relationship for a couple of years and we appreciate the support you give us and particularly the fund-raising for our charity, Ronald McDonald House, which supports families on the Gold Coast and fringe areas beyond,” said Mr Atkins.
“We look forward to strengthening the relationship this year so we can generate more funds and continue to grow and assist the community. We really appreciate this gesture.”
Ronald McDonald House is an existing charity partner of the Titans and was a major beneficiary of last year’s charity ball with White Ribbon. The charity is also supported by the Audi Red Boot Rally, which collectively raised more than $300,000 for the Ronald McDonald House in 2014.
