Get a pizza the action at fundraiser for Variety
The chance to throw pizza dough in the name of charity is edging closer as Variety Goldfields gears up for its second-biggest fundraising event of the year.
Now in its third year,Variety and Sheffield’s Charity Race Day is a chance for the community to get together and support a good cause.
Hoping for a record crowd of 400 attendees, Variety WA branch president Paul Burgess said the major drawcard was the Australian Pizza Throwing Competition.
“This year, we have some of the grant recipients coming along this year from the Goldfields Disable Sports,” he said.
“These kids represented the Goldfields last year at the national championships in Melbourne and also the WA championships in Perth.
“Variety Goldfields assisted these kids by way of travel and accommodation as it is a high cost to get the kids to these events, and for them to come home each time with a number of medals, it is just awesome.”
Mr Burgess said the committee had been working tirelessly over the past six months to get the event up and running and it would not be possible with the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“The fundraising target will be around $25,000 and without the KBCCI, KBRC, the sponsors and the local community, this would not be possible, so a big thankyou to you to them,” he said.
“The money raised at the event is utilised in the community for assisting disabled and disadvantaged kids of the Goldfields region through various programs.”
Tickets can be purchased for the July 19 event via KBCCI, online or at the racecourse.
