In 1983, the Redcliffe Branch established a Princess Quest with proceeds to be donated to the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland.
Over the next 10 years, many of the ESA Australia branches joined Redcliffe to successfully and tirelessly assist with fundraising. The aim of the Quest was to raise funds and assist the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland while establishing Queensland's first Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at Royal Brisbane Hospital.
Due to the extreme success and growth of the campaign, by 1993, the ESA Quest was handed over, in its entirety, to the Leukaemia Foundation. Quest Manager, Maree Filipinni (an ESA member who assisted in spear-heading the Quest) continued the crusade for another 21 years under the direction of the Leukaemia Foundation.
The strength and dedication, starting from ESA Australia's Redcliffe Branch and eventually growing statewide, proudly resulted in raising over $27,000,000.00.
In recognition of ESA's dedication to the Foundation, the accommodation centre at South Brisbane was opened and dubbed ESA Village. In 2012, ESA Village was reloacted and rebuilt in Dutton Park.
