The aim of the match was to raise awareness about the work the foundation is doing in the field of breast cancer support, and generate funds to continue it’s work.
On the day, a $10,000 check from Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Canterbury Leagues Club was presented to The Jenny Souris Foundation.
In a statement to The Greek Herald, Maria Souris, daughter of Jenny Souris and founding member of the Jenny Souris Foundation, said: “Our project is a continuation of my mother Jenny’s effort to help the Greek Australian community in the field of breast cancer and to help the vulnerable families facing health and financial difficulties.”
“We are very proud to continue to do this work through the foundation with the support of M&J Chickens and the Bulldogs,” Maria added.
Minas Souris was also moved by the donation and said: “Love for our fellow man who is suffering has always been the concern of my late wife Jenny and my family. By creating the Jenny Souris Foundation we are continuing Jenny’s dream of helping our fellow human beings. Thank you for your help.”
Sophia Cotsis MP also said: “The efforts of the Souris family, with the creation of The Jenny Souris Foundation, reminds us of the magnanimity and love for our fellow man.”
