Dig Deep – The million dollar idea

by editor

Dig Deep Event is setting the bar high this May, bringing construction enthusiasts from around Australia to Victoria’s newest construction show.

Setting a mammoth task of raising $1 million dollars for Beyond Blue, the team are a quarter of the way there with almost $250,000 raised to help support and raise the awareness of mental health in construction.

Raising vital funds for Beyond Blue and spreading awareness and support throughout Australia on mental health the team behind Dig Deep Event will host a family friendly event that’s sure to impress.

Would it be a construction show though, without a little bit of competition? One of the main attractions on the day will be our ‘Operators Challenge’, where some of Victoria’s top construction companies will showcase their skills on a range of heavy plant including excavator, loaders, and dozers on the day to dig deep and battle it out for Victoria’s top operator, with some exciting prizes to be revealed closer to the time.

Committee member and association secretary Tania White, from Cross the T Legal explains what more about the Dig Deep Event, and what you can expect to see at the construction show.

When the idea was floated from the Directors at CRE Group, Patrick Doheny and Michael Harding, about establishing the Dig Deep Event, raising the profile of mental health within the civil construction industry, and helping to raise money for much needed support services, Tania was immediately on board. “I’ve been providing legal services to the civil construction industry for over 15 years, and I have a soft-spot for those working within the industry, who go to work day-in-day-out to literally build the foundations that our lives are built upon. If there’s anything that I can do to help remove the stigma, to provide support to those that really need it and to otherwise raise funds and support for the cause, then I will do it,” says Tania.

When asked about what Tania is most looking forward to on the day, she replied, “I am super excited for the day! I’m excited to see so many industry players come together to exhibit their wares, compete in the operator challenge, and share a day of fun with each other and their families. I always love food trucks and so am looking forward to choosing some delicious food and I cannot wait to get around to each of our sponsors and exhibitors to say a personal thank you for their support of Dig Deep Event.”

WHAT AND WHO TO EXPECT TO SEE ON THE DAY
Dig Deep Event will host a full day of entertainment from exhibitors showcasing machinery, simulators, construction technology, attachments, and safety to a dedicated Kubota kids area, food trucks, and of course the much anticipated operators challenge. The day is aimed for all the family to come along and enjoy the entertainment.
