YANCHEP and Butler businesses can take part in a Fundraising Sundowner this week to help the charity Kidzucate help children break the chain of bullying.
Pirate 88 radio, drinks and canapes with Cosmic Cocktails and Catering, a silent auction and networking are on the agenda at a fundraiser for Kidzucate to be held at Wild West Hyundai.
Wanneroo Business Association business liaison officer Lauren Mcgee said businesses had contributed products or service vouchers for the Fundraising Sundowner on Thursday, June 15.
“We have managed to collect just under $8000 worth of donations, and now we need you to book your ticket to come along and support the event,’’ she said.
Kidzucate says bullying is an increasing problem in schools, neighbourhoods and communities.
The organisation aspires to create a world where such abuses are recognised and understood by children, using its educational programs.
The charity’s website says its aim is to create a happier world for children and youth.
“Our mission is to empower young people with the knowledge and awareness to identify child and youth related issues and take appropriate action towards their own and other children’s safety and wellbeing,’’ the website said.
“Our objective is to promote the prevention or the control of behaviour that is harmful or abusive to human beings, primarily in emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse and substance abuse and is carried out in the following activities – Take-A-Stand and Teen Safety Programs.
“Our values are Collaboration, Courage, Education, Equality, Fairness, Honesty, Leadership, Neutrality, Support and Transparency.’’
The fundraising sundowner will be held in Wangara from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
