Helping kids have a ball
FOR several years, dentists Adrian and Vicky Kat volunteered with American Rotarian Roscoe Turner helping children in Thailand. But when Mr Turner died last year, the couple looked locally to make a difference. Parkerville Children and Youth Care caught their attention because it benefited children. On Saturday, September 20, the Kats, who have three sons aged 15, 12 and five, will host a charity ball at Crown Perth in Burswood. The charity ball has the aim of raising about $250,000 in funding for Parkerville, which cares and provides services for vulnerable children in the community. “The ball is all about raising awareness for Parkerville,” Mr Kat said. “One of the things I like about Parkerville is that they work on intervening early. “They have a higher chance of correcting any problems the children have. “They have certain programs and they know they work. “We want the ball to be enjoyable but have a message attached.” All money raised from the charity ball will go to Parkerville.
