Support for Passages 2018
The Rotary Club of Karrinyup were proud to once again support the Rotary Club of Perth’s Passages Race Day as a Silver Sponsor, Saturday 12th May 2018, in support of the amazing Passages Resource Centre.
Passages Resource Centre is a referral service for homeless or street present young people between the ages of 12 and 25. http://passagesresourcecentre.com/ . The day is a must attend event for the club and friends, great fun, great prizes and all for a brilliant cause.
Organised by the Rotary Club of Perth and the St Vincent de Paul Society all funds raised yesterday, over $68,000, through ticket sales and auctions are directed towards assisting street present young people through information, programs and referrals.
In our case it is an opportunity to support our own District Rotary Clubs – inter-district collaboration on projects is something Karrinyup have commenced. Initially we were able to support the Rotary Club Heirisson on their Vanuatu Water Project and now in supporting Passages; connections through the Rotary Club of Perth provided significant support to our EarBus project. This level of collaboration and interconnectedness really epitomises the “multiplier effect” of our hard won charity dollar.
