Bronte Surf Club announced today that Macquarie Group will become Naming Rights presenter of the Bondi to Bronte Community Ocean Swim, which is managed by Bronte Surf Club.
The swim, now in its 11th year, is one of Sydney’s most popular Ocean Swims with an average of approximately 2000 swimmers participating in the 2km swim along one of Sydney’s most picturesque stretches of coastline. Macquarie’s involvement complements its support of the Whale Beach Ocean Swim.
“This is truly tremendous news for our Surf Club” said Basil Scaffidi, President of Bronte. “The swim is the Club’s most important fundraiser and helps the Club fulfil its important community role of safe guarding our beaches. We look forward to a successful association with Macquarie and thank them for their support."
The announcement coincides with Bronte Surf Lifesaving Club celebrating its 110th Year. The Club was formed in 1903 and is the oldest Surf Club in the world.
The Macquarie Bondi To Bronte Ocean Swim will be held this year on December 1st 2013.
