Help­ing kids have a ball

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

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.
