Waverley Toyota Good for Footy Event

August 7, 2018

Waverley Toyota proud to be supporting the Toyota Good For Footy Night Waverley Toyota Challenge Cup at Mazenod Panthers Football Club, with JARRYN GEARY and 2 other AFL Players in attendance.

Marking this special occasion, the evening will consisted of a ‘Junior Come and Try Scratch Match’ – 2 x 5 min halves, followed by an exhibition match between 2 ALL ABILITY local football teams, the Mt Waverley Demons and Mazenod Panthers. Both teams will competed for the prestigious Waverley Toyota Challenge Cup. There was a 15 minute warm up and 2 x 10 minute quarters with a mixture of division 1 and 4 from both sides.

The AFL Victoria will be in attendance to extend the excitement with grass roots footy and the community.

During the game family, friends and supporters will have an opportunity to play on the giant interactive inflatables (thanks to AFL Victoria) or feast on a free BBQ from our friends at Grill’d Chadstone.

After the match all players, family, friends, supporters, will crowd into the Mazenod Club Rooms for speeches, Q&A session with the AFL Players, presentations and Raffle (thanks to Waverley Toyota, Fedele’s Ristorante Italiano and Mario’s Artisan Butcher).

Both teams are non-profit organizations whose purposes are to initiate access for people with an intellectual disability to the game of Australian Rules Football. Both teams are trying to make a difference in the local community by: Treating everyone equally, exercising for health, changing community attitudes and main stream integration of those with a disability. Both teams are part of FIDA (Football Integration Development Association). Participation in Australian Rules Football enhances life skills and develops self-esteem, confidence and improved health.

Dealer Principal, George Stefanou, added: “Waverley Toyota is a proud supporter of both the Mt Waverley Demons and Mazenod Panthers. We hope to raise awareness as well as encourage more players with all disabilities to be involved in football and hope that more companies come on board to support these great non-profit organizations that work so hard to provide players with an environment that promotes fitness, fun, friendship and a sense of belonging.”

We look forward to seeing you at the game!!!
