In our June newsletter I mentioned that we had completed the process of establishing the PFA Development Fund in association with the Australian Sports Foundation, as a vehicle to assist in raising funds for the development of petanque.
Our first fund-raising effort with the fund is the HELP GET OUR JUNIORS TO CHINA campaign. We are looking to raise $10,000 to cover the travel costs of our 4 junior players Bronson Romani, Logan Romani, Zac Diep Nicholson and Khrishika Ramjuttun who are representing Australia in the Junior World Championships in Kaihua, Zhejiang Province, China in November.
We really need all your help with this, otherwise the cost of getting these great young players to the championship falls on their parents.
In this edition of the newsletter you will see a flyer with a link to the PFA development fund donation web site, any donations you make will be gratefully received but it is not just petanque players like you that we want to canvas in this campaign.
This flyer will also be posted on Facebook at Facebook.com/PetanqueAustralia. Please share it and spread the word with your community of friends, business contacts and any other potential sponsors, it doesn’t matter how big or small the donation is, they will all help to get these guys to China.
Thanks for your help
Joe Corcoran President
