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.
