Andrew Daddo to MC Penrith mayoral charity fundraiser

Well-known Australian actor, author, TV and radio personality, Andrew Daddo, will be hosting Penrith’s Mayoral Charity Fundraiser at St Marys Leagues Club on Friday, 21 June.

Penrith Mayor, Todd Carney, thanked Mr Daddo for being a part of and acknowledging the importance of the Mayoral Charity Fundraiser.

“To have Andrew come along and support the Fundraiser means so much to the Penrith community. For him to get behind the Penrith Community Kitchen especially during the current cost-of-living pressures, I sincerely appreciate it,” Mayor Carney said.

“I thank Andrew for wanting to be part of this special event, to raise money and awareness of this wonderful charity that helps people going through the toughest of times,” he said.

“This fundraising event will ensure that people and children get fed, have warm clothing and blankets during the cold winter months and that students are receiving nourishing food whilst at school.”

Andrew Daddo said, “I am extremely honoured to MC this charity evening. The Penrith Community Kitchen is doing vital work for the community, and I hope we raise a lot of much-needed money.”

The Penrith Community Kitchen provides a non-for-profit service to the community that assists the homeless, low-income families and those who are in need.

On any given day, the Kitchen provides meals for between 80 and 100 people.

Guests will hear from Andrew Daddo, Mayor Carney and the Kitchen’s Secretary, Gai Hawthorn on the night along with circus performances by PAWS Studio, a silent auction, plus a three-course meal and drinks. All funds raised on the night will be donated to the Kitchen.

“Let’s do our part to ensure that there is always assistance and a safe place where those in need can come, free from judgement. I’d love to see you on Friday, 21 June,” Mayor Carney said.
