On 12 December 2017, Andrea and Wendy of Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) (CLCRF) attended a lunch at the Royal Perth Golf Club and the CLCRF were presented with a generous cheque of $45,000 from the Royal Perth Ladies Charity Committee. The donation came from fundraising efforts of the Royal Perth Ladies Charity Committee through proceeds from their Golf Day, Bridge Club and other activities.
In Committee Chairperson, Vicki Prastidis’ own words:
“The Royal Perth Ladies Charity Committee run a large golf day in October every year. The event is for the R.O. Law cup which has been played for 82 years. We have a field of close to 200 ladies playing golf (from clubs all over W.A.), we also have over 50 bridge players. Each player pays a fee for the day.
“The ladies set up stalls selling flowers, plants, cakes and produce, books, craft, bags, raffles and wine. The day is lots of fun and the members and community generously provide so much for us.
“As well as the golf day, we are given money each week by our Bridge club who charge a gold coin to each player. These ladies are a huge support to us.
“Throughout the year, we hold a fashion parade, sell fresh produce and have several raffles. The members at Royal Perth are so proud to be part of helping children live fuller happier lives and work hard to do that.”
The CLCRF thanks Vicki and the members of the Royal Perth Ladies Charity Committee for their generous donation and is very appreciative of their wonderful contribution to child cancer research.
