Cathie charity’s fundraiser
THE Cathie Stankevitch Foundation is hosting an inaugural charity ball on Saturday, December 1.
Based in Widnes, the charity was set up by former Vikings player John Stankevitch after his mother was killed in a road collision.
Cathie Stankevitch was walking her dogs with her husband when they were hit by an out-of-control van on Sunday, September 27, 2015.
After being airlifted to Aintree Hospital for treatment Cathie passed away. She was 54.
The Cathie Stankevitch Foundation was established by her family to keep the memory of Cathie alive and help children and young people.
Cathie was passionate about children and young people, therefore the charity aims to give them positive experiences by redistributing unused sports equipment to children who wouldn’t usually be able to take part in sports.
The foundation also provides a youth club and hopes to open up more clubs in other towns.
The inaugural ball will take place in the Holiday Inn, Beechwood, Runcorn, on December 1 and includes a three course meal, drinks on ● arrival, three bottles of wine on the table, tea and coffee, live entertainment and a raffle and auction.
Tickets are £60 each or £600 for a table of 10.
A table of 10 and advertisement for a business costs £800.
For more information and to buy tickets contact Anne Marie Hughes on 01925 418 564 or 07808 062 781.
