Youth have mil­lion rea­sons to smile

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

AS Telethon 2018 raced to a close and a record $38,000,554 in do­na­tions, there was a nice ac­knowl­edge­ment made for the fundrais­ing ef­forts of a group of Lath­lain chil­dren.

The Telethon Stand Team was the fi­nal pledge read out on tele­vi­sion and the $1308 tipped in by the group of stu­dents was the clincher to push past $38 mil­lion.

They col­lected their money – as they have done for the past six years – by oper­at­ing a stall out the front of Siena and Ka­sia Favazzo’s house.

The first time Siena and Ka­sia and their neigh­bour Gabi sold old toys and books to raise $80.

This year, with help from friends and fel­low Ur­sula Frayne Catholic Col­lege stu­dents, Javauna, Amy and Ge­or­gia, they upped the ante by hold­ing the stall over two week­ends and sell­ing cakes, plants, toys and books.

Next year they will be of­fi­cial Telethon fundrais­ers and are hop­ing to beat their to­tal raised from this year.

Siena, Ka­sia, Gabi, Javauna, Amy and Ge­or­gia cel­e­brate their fundrais­ing ef­forts for Telethon.
