As a Cornerstone Partner of The Million Dollar Lunch, the Volvo Dealers of Melbourne donates a luxury Volvo vehicle as first prize in the Premium Raffle.

As the world’s leading car manufacturer in automotive safety, Volvo has been pioneering to deliver quality, people-focused cars, trucks and buses since its inception in 1927. Its mission is to make people’s lives easier, safer and better. From this philosophy, the Volvo Dealers of Melbourne has prioritised supporting research and development for childhood cancer.

The Volvo Premium Raffle generated almost $300,000 of the $1.719 million gross raised at The Million Dollar Lunch 2016. In both 2015 and 2016, the Foundation benefited from the generosity of the first prize winners with the re-sale of the car in the Grand Auction, generating a further $83,900 to support children with cancer.

“We greatly appreciate the Volvo Dealers of Melbourne’s ongoing support of the Children's Cancer Foundation. Their significant contribution over the past four years - total prize value of $313,095 since 2014 - demonstrates the Volvo Dealers of Melbourne's active commitment to their community, in assisting Australian families through a difficult time,” said Aileen Boyd-Squires, Chief Executive of the Foundation.

This year, guests at The Million Dollar Lunch will have the chance to drive away in a luxury XC60 T6 R-Design, valued at $83,600. With only 200 Volvo Premium Raffle tickets sold, at $1,500 each, this opportunity is within your reach.

Thank you to the Volvo Dealers of Melbourne:
