South Melbourne FC encourages everyone connected with the club to attend the Kick a Goal for Joey Lynch fundraising night on Monday 15 February.

Joey Lynch is the son of The Age football writer Michael Lynch and has unfortunately been through eight years of treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The 23 year old has been told that all avenues of treatment in Australia have been exhausted but a phase clinical trial in the USA has been turning positive results and can potentially cure his disease. The only downside is that the cost of the six-month stay in the USA will cost Joey $800,000 AUD.

Socceroo Tim Cahill recently donated his entire Socceroos match fee towards Joey’s fundraising campaign and there have been many events held that have raised significant money but the $80,000 target has not been reached yet.

The Kick a Goal for Joey Lynch fundraising event on Monday 15 February begins at 7pm at Stars International Receptions (1C Bell Street, Preston) and will be hosted by Tara Rushton and George Donikian. Tickets are $90 each and include a three-course meal and drinks. All monies raised on the night will go towards Joey Lynch’s fundraising campaign.

Please call the club on 9645 9797 or email if you would like to purchase a ticket and help get Joey Lynch to the USA for his treatment.
