The Kai-Fella Heroes Aug 2021

By August 18, 2021No Comments

Looking back over the second quarter of 2021, with everything the pandemic has thrown at us, we all know it hasn’t been easy for most businesses. But even during this uncertain period, we’ve received generous donations from our wonderful local heroes.

Here are a few more of our fabulously bighearted KEF Heroes of 2021:

Charity Football Match Sponsored by Lisa O’Malley

In late March, a charity football match took place between CBC Amateur Football and North Freo Football Club. It was generously organised by Lisa O’Malley MLA for Bicton (second from the left in the photo). There were plenty of heroes on both teams but the real winners were young Aussie men getting the help they need through KEF’s Tomorrow Man workshops.

The charity game raised $5,000 for the Foundation. What a great day!

The Sri Lankan Australian Youth Association

SLAYA is a not for profit organisation run by students, many of whom will be well-acquainted with the challenges facing young people today. SLAYA kindly donated $500 for the Foundation. It’s always wonderful to see young men and women stepping up to make a difference!

East Fremantle Junior Football Club (Year 8 Blue – Boys)

And finally, my son Cam and I had one of the most memorable afternoons in early August meeting the young heroes who raised a whopping $13,700 from their Rottnest Island Fun-Run. The boys were warmly supported with generous donations from their community and local businesses. Well done everybody!
It was particularly emotional for us because Kai used to play at this football club as a young boy.

We are also grateful for the generous souls who made individual donations on the website from April through to July 2021:

A very big thank you to Mark Armour, Victoria Regan, Jed Bews, Emily Donley, Wade Freeman, Karen Claridge, Cleve Etherington, John Beesley, Xavier Mitchell, Wade Freeman, Alexander Miller, Angela Murphy, Deb Moylan, Errol Allen, Sharni Clifford, Stefanie Dobro, Elio Novello, and Nina Taranto.
