Last year’s inaugural event was an enormous success fielding over 100 players and raising over $20K for the PANCARE Foundation.
This year the GALA committee has nominated to support the Live4Life Charity.
Live4Life is a health promotion charity, supporting rural and regional communities and their young people.
Live4Life is the only mental health education and youth suicide prevention model designed specifically for rural and regional communities.
Live4Life communities deliver Teen and accredited Youth Mental Health First Aid training in schools and the wider community, create local partnerships to lead conversations about mental health that reduce stigma, and promote young leaders as mental health ambassadors.
We all understand the mental health issues all communities have experienced due to the COVID Pandemic, particularly in regional areas, which are underfunded and under resourced.
As the Patron of GALA, I encourage all in our industry sector to support this very worthwhile cause in a relaxed and social environment and I look forward to catching up with you all on the day, to continue Rod’s legacy.
