WACK ben­e­fits from Dim­boola event

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Dim­boola Ski Club has do­nated $2327.50 to Wim­mera Against Can­cer in Kids, WACK, from money raised at its Peter Tay­lor Memo­rial Week­end Bare­foot Tour­na­ment.

The Dim­boola club, in con­junc­tion with Bare­foot SA and the Vic­to­rian Bare­foot Club, ran the event on the Wim­mera River in Oc­to­ber.

The late Peter Tay­lor of Ballarat, who died in May, was a long-time mem­ber and sup­porter of Dim­boola Ski Club as well as a state and na­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tive in bare­foot wa­ter­ski­ing.

The tour­na­ment fea­tured Aus­tralia’s best bare­foot­ers, both past and present, com­pet­ing in a spec­tac­u­lar night jump event.

Dim­boola vice-pres­i­dent Lach­lan Schultz said the tour­na­ment was a great suc­cess for the club, Dim­boola, bare­foot wa­ter­ski­ing and WACK.

“We have also do­nated $1000 to Ballarat Pal­lia­tive Care, which helped care for Peter and sup­port his fam­ily,” Mr Schultz said.

WACK trustee Bren­dan Mckin­non said the or­gan­i­sa­tion was pleased to re­ceive do­na­tions to help sup­port fam­i­lies of chil­dren with can­cer.
