Ride forYouth gets glam­our

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Opin­ion - By DENISE S. CAHILL

AUS­TRALIA’S 2014 Home of the Year in Dalkeith will come alive with fash­ion, jew­ellery and lux­ury cars this month to raise money for Youth Fo­cus’ 2015 Ride for Youth.

Giorgi Ex­clu­sive Homes, which is spon­sor­ing a team for the sec­ond year, will host a fundraiser on Fe­bru­ary 19 from 6.30pm at its Hobbs Av­enue home that won the na­tional HIA-CSR Home of the Year award last year.

Aus­tralian fash­ion from Sana Bou­tique will be on show, ac­com­pa­nied by Wil­lie Creek Pearls and pieces from Steven An­der­son Jewellers, while Lexus of Perth will dis­play its cars in the drive­way.

Giorgi gen­eral man­ager Brad Wal- pole will join Adrian Kluge, who will be tak­ing part in his 11th ride this year, Ben Carter, Peter Young, Barry Turner and Paul Hopwood in the team that will ride 700km from Al­bany to Perth from March 24-28.

Mr Kluge said the team aimed to con­trib­ute $50,000 to the $1.7 mil­lion ex­pected to be raised.

“Ev­ery­one has a dif­fer­ent spin on why they do it; for me it’s just about be­ing in­volved with Youth Fo­cus and sup­port­ing the kids that need it,” Mr Kluge said.

“We stop at schools to break the days up but it’s an im­por­tant part of it to spread the word.”

There will be a record 155 riders this year. Tick­ets for the Giorgi fundraiser are $100 each, avail­able by call­ing Re­nay Pash on 9444 8711.
