Corporate Partnerships: companies putt, fish and race with a purpose


Our second “Putt with a Purpose” St Vincent’s Hospital Corporate Golf Day was held in June and we would like to thank the Magenta Shores Golf & Country Club and their members for their warm hospitality. On a perfect sunny day, the competition and camaraderie was high between the members, our Corporate Partners and clinicians. In the evening, Dr Paul Jansz, Dr David Roy, Prof Peter Macdonald AM and Prof Chris Hayward shared some fascinating insights into the latest Heart Lung innovations at St Vincent’s Hospital and outlined our vision for the St Vincent’s Heart Lung Centre of Excellence. Thank you to Rob Hurley and his wonderful team at Magenta Shores Golf and Country Club, Levantine Hill and Bensons Property Group for providing the exceptional wines for the dinner, and to our other supporters of the day – Pullman Magenta Shores Resort, Callaway, Drummond Golf, FOREplay and Titleist.

Pirtek has been a long-term Corporate Partner of St Vincent’s and this year continued to raise funds to support the Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit at St Vincent’s Hospital established in 2012. Pirtek held their 14th annual Pirtek Fishing Challenge to support medical research over the weekend of 23-24 April 2022. The national online fishing competition – catch, photo, release – is open to everyone, whether you are an experienced angler or picking up a rod for the first time. This year, 11,711 anglers fished the Pirtek Fishing Challenge creating a new world record.

Following the success of the inaugural Ultimate Motorsports raffle last year, Pirtek has once again created a “money can’t buy prize” for one of the world’s greatest motorsport events, Bathurst 1000. This year’s raffle raised nearly $30,000 to support the Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit at St Vincent’s Hospital. Thank you to all our Corporate Partners for your valued and continued support.
