Young people benefit from funds

Young people benefit from funds The Mayor of the City of Canterbury Bankstown has today presented a cheque for more than $120,000 to the Steve Waugh Foundation. No  

The Mayor of the City of Canterbury Bankstown has today presented a cheque for more than $120,000 to the Steve Waugh Foundation.

The funds were the proceeds of last month’s Mayoral Charity Dinner at Bankstown Sports Club, which was attended by 440 people.

"I’m very happy we’ve been able to raise this six-figure sum for such a worthwhile cause," he said.

"Our local community is so generous and I would like to thank the hundreds of residents and business leaders who attended and donated.

"I am sure the funds raised will go a long way to supporting the Steve Waugh Foundation, which helps children and young adults suffering rare diseases."

Steve Waugh, who grew up and played junior cricket in Bankstown, before going on to represent and captain the Australian team, thanked the Mayor and community.

"We’re very grateful for the opportunity to have been the charity of choice for this year’s Mayoral Charity Dinner and I thank the Mayor and Council for making the evening happen," he said.

"It was a pleasure to meet so many of the committed local supporters on the night.

"These funds will go to our Grants Program, in particular individual grants, which will provide medicine, treatment, specialised equipment and items that improve the quality of life of the child and their family."

The annual Mayoral Charity Dinner has now raised more than $1 million for numerous charities, including Save Our Sons, Little Wings, Youth Off The Streets, the children’s wards at Canterbury and Bankstown Hospitals, and Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics Australia.
