Recently, South Melbourne’s General Manager Peter Kokotis represented the Club at the Living Without Limits Foundation’s Footy Legend’s Lunch event in Adelaide.
With just under 300 people in attendance, and close to a whopping $40,000 raised on the day, it was an absolute success, and put the Foundation one step closer to realising their dream of establishing a much-needed House of Respite, for families of children affected by autism or cerebral palsy.
The Living Without Limits Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2012 by four very passionate and enthusiastic friends, all committed to simply doing something positive to help children impaired in some capacity.
The Foundation works extremely hard to raise funds for very ‘specific’ purposes – to fund critical research, support various children’s organisations, assist in developmental practices and purchase important equipment – as determined by the Foundation’s Board, which is very ‘hands on’.
Living Without Limits seeks to help all children to overcome challenges, be participatory, set and achieve their goals and maximise their potential. It works to break down barriers and restrictions and provide opportunities.
SMFC General Manager Peter Kokotis, speaking to smfc.com.au said “having the opportunity to support the Living Without Limits Foundation chaired by my good friends Steve Maras and Philip Di Pinto on behalf of South Melbourne FC was truly an honour. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to meet three South Australian Greats in Barrie Robran, Russel Ebert and Neil Kerley, and being part of a community club ourselves that is passionate about charity, we know how important these initiatives are for people in need”.
South Melbourne FC was proud to participate in this fantastic fundraising initiative.
