Over $27,000 raised for the Variety – the Children’s Charity

With such a great result from this year’s event we want to extend a huge thanks
to the generous sponsors, supporters and all who attended the 2015 Construction
Industry Alliance Charity Golf Day. With the downpour and flash floods from the
previous week there was a little worry for the condition of the green, however the
sun was shining and it was perfect day at Keperra Golf Course. In total there were
140 players taking on a competitive round of 18 holes.

The stories behind this great cause
Kai, who has Cerebral Palsy, thanks to Variety supporters, was the
recipient of an iPad to assist with his communication. We wanted
to share with you a heartfelt message from Kai’s mother, Raylene:

Having the opportunity, to be given an iPad, will open the world of
communication for Kai & allow him to speak for himself. If it wasn’t for
all the people & businesses who donate to Variety, we wouldn’t have
this choice or ability to give Kai this chance. To see his face light up and
to sit back & watch him playing games, listening to music, independently,
it just makes me all warm & fuzzy inside, if that makes sense. Seeing the
smile and joy he has can brighten the dullest day. But most importantly,
it shows HIM that he can do things for himself and that HE can have a
voice. We cannot wait to see where this latest journey of discovering
communication will take us.
