For the second year our Parky Angels provided a beautiful event for the annual ladies lunch at Frasers, Kings Park on 20 May. The Angels filled the room with ladies passionate about raising awareness and funds for Parkerville Children and Youth Care’s services; for those in our community who have suffered trauma from child abuse. With a heartfelt speech by our CE, Basil Hanna, the audience were inspired to help; which was demonstrated by participation on the wonderful silent auction, exciting balloon pop, Starfish Pledge and raffle.
A dedicated supporter of the ladies lunch Andrea Tonkin demonstrated the latest trends to the audience preceded by an outstanding performance by soprano Sara Macliver, who held the room in silence at her wonderful mix of song and story. To add to the excitement of the afternoon, Pindan presented a huge cheque to Parkerville Children and Youth Care for the charity home project (see below). To conclude the event the Angels had organised a relaxed garden gathering in the sunshine where attendees networked whilst tasting a beautiful cheese, fruit and chocolate platter in Kings Park.
Parkerville Children and Youth Care would like to extend our thanks not only to the Parky Angels for their event management and fundraising but to all the supporters and volunteers involved in making the Ladies Lunch a success. Next years Ladies Lunch has been scheduled for Friday 12 May 2017.
