The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs sponsorship portfolio continues to strengthen with long serving sleeve sponsor Doltone House today announcing their re-signing as part of the clubs five re-signings in five days.
The move further solidifies the relationship between the Bulldogs and Doltone House, who have been a part of the Bulldogs family of corporate partners since January 2010.
"Today is a very proud day for the Bulldogs, said Bulldogs CEO Todd Greenberg, "It is very satisfying when long standing partners like Doltone House see value in associating their business with the club.
"The decision to re-sign highlights the belief Doltone House have for the Bulldogs and the positive culture we are working hard to create both on and off the field.
"The Bulldogs are a family club and we are delighted to have Anna and her family back on board," said Greenberg.
Director of Doltone House and Bulldogs Women in League Ambassador, Anna Cesarano explained her family and the businesses' endearing connection with the club.
"The whole sponsorship came about from our youth, and coming along to Belmore to watch the Bulldogs, said Director of Doltone House, Anna Cesarano.
"When our father passed away we signed up, originally as a tribute to him, but now we've developed some great relationships, and it has been a great awareness exercise for our business and our branding."
Operating a significant portfolio of waterfront entertainment and catering venues including Jones Bay Wharf and Darling Island Wharf, the family owned and operated company identifies the Bulldogs strong family connection as one of the key assets which made the club an attractive partner.
"The Bulldogs are a family club, Doltone House is a family business, said Managing Director, Paul Signorelli. "We support all of their work in the community alongside their achievements on the field."
Highlighting their own work and commitment to the community, Doltone House will be using this Friday night's game as an opportunity to raise awareness for the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation by once again handing over their sleeve asset on the Bulldogs playing jersey to the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation.
The Foundation, which is committed to raising awareness and finding a cure for asbestos-related cancer Mesothelioma, was established by the Signorelli family as a tribute to their father and founder of Doltone House Group, Biaggio Signorelli, who passed away from Mesothelioma in May 2008.
"The foundation is honouring our late father, who was the founder of Doltone House, explained Anna Cesarano.
"The foundation was created by his children to create awareness about asbestos cancer. All of us have grown up around asbestos, whether it has been do-it-yourself renovations or being around fibro garages that we all played around in, and as we all know, it's a killer."
The focus of the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation is on identifying the disease in its early stages.
"We have now been able to raise over $1 million, in just under four years, Anna stated. "We're looking at early detection, as the cancer can often take upwards of 30 years to develop."
Friday night's jerseys will be auctioned off following the match via Grays Online, with all funds being donated to the ongoing fight against Asbestos-related cancers. More information to come shortly.
Doltone House's re-signing with the Bulldogs is part of this week's five signings in five days.
