2017 T20 Celebrity Charity Cricket Match
Continuing my major sponsorship with Prospect District Cricket Club, the third charity cricket match was successfully run on Sunday February 12th 2017 at Prospect Oval, raising money for the Little Heroes Foundation to support seriously ill children.
Little Heroes Foundation raises funds towards essential equipment and services for seriously ill children and their families. In the last 20 years they have raised close to $20 million dollars for life saving facilities at Adelaide's Women and Children's Hospital and provide much required daily support to families through the Little Heroes Care Program. This amazing result by an outstanding foundation made even more impressive with no government funding behind the Little Heroes Foundation.
I am truly grateful to the time and effort so many people gave up to volunteer and support this years event. We successfully raised over $13,000 on the day. My target was $20,000 and I am not giving up until we have hit this target for a six.
I would politely like to ask a favour once again for everyone to take a little time to help the Little Heroes Foundation. They are currently in need of urgent funds for critical medical equipment.
It is as simply as clicking on to the following link and in section 4 reason for supporting note CHARITY CRICKET and hopefully we can get the funds beyond $20,000.
The Little Heroes Foundation is currently supporting over 130 families through what would be one of the most trying and horrific times in their lives. I personally have given significantly and will continue to as if I were in the position of any of these families, I would be forever grateful for the Foundations support.
This event has raised both my daughters, Kashalia and Taylor, awareness of how important that we have such amazing support network as this to help. Both my girls now realise the importance of family, health and community as a whole and dug into their own pocket money and gave generously. Kashalia has even put in her future goals (maybe a little goal orientated like her mother, LOL) to continue to help raise money for children and their families that the Little Heroes Support through their Care Program.
I personally want to thank the champion businesses and superstar people who made the day possible (click on the name for a direct link).
