Two of Warrandyte’s oldest and most popular operations have increased their commitment in a long-term deal that will benefit the local community with Warrandyte Basketball proud to announce The Grand Hotel Warrandyte as the Major Sponsor of the Venom State Championship Senior Women for at least the next three years.

Adding to a number of other local businesses that support the club, the Grand Hotel Warrandyte will continue to be heavily involved with the club’s senior program.

Grand Hotel Warrandyte’s General Manager, Peter Appleby, stressed the importance of local support when announcing the sponsorship.

“There is a real need for community relationships and the Grand Hotel is committed to being a part of Warrandyte Basketball’s future. We feel the utmost importance for places like Warrandyte to have strong bonds between local business’ and sporting groups,” said Appleby.

“We are very proud of our role within the club. It will continue to be a strong partnership, and we look forward to a rewarding future for both parties as well as the wider community. To show how much we want to give to the club, we have already advised the Committee that any Warrandyte members are welcome to book one of our function rooms and we will absolutely, no questions asked, waive the booking fee.

Warrandyte Basketball’s Vice President, Lisa Saunders, echoed Mr Appleby’s sentiments and said the commitment by the Grand Hotel was yet another sign that the Warrandyte community is first class when it comes to supporting each other.

“For many years we have enjoyed wonderful support from the likes of Wilson Security, Eastside Mitsubishi, Porter Davis Homes, Elite Panels, All Over Bins, Metro Signs, Impact Sports and Bendigo Bank; all strong local businesses with a view to supporting the community. To now have the Grand Hotel Warrandyte sponsor our Senior Women in their first year at State Championship level is fantastic and as stated when they first joined the club, we are thrilled to see that they have become such an integral part of Warrandyte Basketball, especially for functions and events,” said Saunders.

“Peter and his team have done a tremendous job in taking the Grand Hotel to the next level, especially with fine dining and entertainment. We want to ensure our club events remain in Warrandyte and with more than a thousand members, we needed a partner that could help accommodate us. Obviously we looked no further than the Grand Hotel.

“Best of all, this sponsorship is about community helping community and from our perspective at the club, that’s the best sponsorship you can have,” added Saunders.
