In partnership with the Australian Rugby Union (ARU), the innovative event partnership for the Bledisloe Cup match on Saturday 26 July was a huge success. With 60 volunteers selling tattoos and collecting donations from rugby supporters, thousands of dollars was raised for research into eye disease.
Inside the stadium over 70,000 rugby supporters became eye aware with former Wallaby Captain Dr Mark Loane interviewed in the centre of the field and the JULeye online campaign aired on the big screen pre-game.
This would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and support of Clayton Utz and Macquarie Group employees who volunteered their time on Saturday night to help out! We also acknowledge the tremendous leadership shown by the ARU in enabling this partnership to take place in the first year of JULeye.
