Generous Kawana Island donation for Legacy

Every Friday night, the leisure centre at Living Choice Kawana Island is filled to capacity with residents gathering to enjoy Happy Hour. On Friday 28th May, it was an especially happy occasion with Lee Shimbel, Chairman of Sunshine Coast Legacy, in attendance to receive a donation of $1,878 for Legacy. The funds were raised at the recent ANZAC Day breakfast and by conducting a raffle. Some of the 58 prizes for the raffle were donated by businesses, including Living Choice, but the majority of the prizes were donated by residents themselves.

Resident Jake Jacobsen, who played a big part in organising the ANZAC Day breakfast, presented the cheque on behalf of all the residents. In thanking the residents for their generous donation, Lee Shimbel gave an informative insight into the work Legacy was doing for families of deceased and wounded veterans on the Sunshine Coast. “It was a pleasant evening but even better knowing our efforts are going to a very worthy charity,” said Jake.
