BULLDOGS TRIBUTE THE LATE BIAGGIO SIGNORELLI,
FOUNDER OF DOLTONE HOUSE GROUP (THEIR SLEEVE SPONSOR)
The Biaggio Signorelli Foundation is committed to raising awareness, early detection, treatment and cure for the asbestos-related cancer (Mesothelioma) - the Signorelli family's tribute to their father and the founder of the Doltone House venue and catering collection group, who passed away from the cancer in May 2008.
Some of the Foundation's Board members include Former NSW Premier Morris Iemma, radio presenters Jason Morrison 2UE & Glenn Wheeler of 2GB, Keith Cox (Head Chemotherapy nurse at RPA), along with Doltone Houses' family Directors, Paul Signorelli, Nina Milazzo and Anna Cesarano.
Round 20 on Friday 22nd July 2011, marks an old rival NRL clash between the Bulldogs and Eels at ANZ Stadium. This televised match will see the Bulldog players wearing the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation logo on their sleeve, in support of the foundation, in place of Doltone House their sleeve sponsor for the evening. Signed jerseys will be a part of the fund raising proceedings to Asbestos Cancer and auctioned off on Grays Online.
As the evening also marks the traditional Bandaged Bear Cup round, the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation will also make a cheque donation to Westmead Hospital that night.
Be sure to support this cause by purchasing a limited edition jersey following the Round 20 game, which is always historically a great clash between these old rivals.
