We’re always amazed at what a group of friends can achieve.
Several years back Kate Shadiac was completing her Bachelor of Midwifery when she raised a bunch of support for 2h through a chocolate drive. Even then Kate was keen to help and do what she could. So, when she made the decision to join this year’s Safe Arrivals team it was no surprise that she’d kick some major fundraising goals.
And what better place to do that than at the South Australian Amateur Football League headquarters at Thebarton. You never know who your friends are until you invite them along to a Quiz night – or so it seems. Well Kate has a lot of friends! All 20 tables were presold and keen to get behind the cause. The night could hardly have missed with a dead ringer for Ben Stiller (Kate’s dad, Mark) hosting proceedings with best friend ‘Frank’.
After everyone generously chipped in and the gold coins were counted ‘Kate’s Quiz’ raised a whopping $5,000 for the Safe Arrivals project!
In improving the lives of others, when asked ‘Why Kate?’ – her reply was typically straightup,
‘I love it, … and I want to do my bit’!
