Telethon cal­en­dar has $10,000 tar­get for help­ing kids

South Western Times - - News -

WA Coun­try Builders will of­fi­cially launch a third Telethon cal­en­dar to­mor­row night in a bid to raise $10,000 for the char­ity that sup­ports chil­dren and fam­i­lies in need.

This year’s cal­en­dar fea­tures mod­els from CM Model Man­age­ment and staff from WA Coun­try Builders shot by Pippa Smith Pho­tog­ra­phy at Ch­eryl­ton Farm and Chalets.

Project man­ager An­drea Baker said $24,000 had been pre­vi­ously raised from cal­en­dar sales for Telethon, which “pro­vides vi­tal care and en­riches the lives of thou­sands of chil­dren”.

“I am very pas­sion­ate about Telethon and am very proud and lucky to work for a com­pany that is in­volved in sup­port­ing such a wor­thy cause,” Ms Baker said.

“What we have ac­com­plished could not have been done with­out the as­sis­tance and sup­port of the com­mu­nity and lo­cal busi­ness.”

The launch will take place at Bun­bury Cen­tre­point Shop­ping Cen­tre and will in­clude a chance to win a Pearl Neck­let val­ued at $1500 do­nated by Smales Bun­bury.

Cal­en­dars can be bought from to­day, with a pre-launch to be held from 11am to 2pm at the cen­tre.
