Wests Tigers players Shawn Blore and Tommy Talua were on hand on Wednesday night at Organica Concord Café to support an important local charity event.
‘Australiana and the Wider Community’ was an art exhibition showcasing works from participants of the Let’s Get Going program for adults with varied abilities.
The event also exhibited works from well known artists Davinder Hart, Tracey Van Oploo, Elaine Floursham, Eugene Tan, Dianna Miller & Tim Connell.
The event was hosted by Head of Partnerships at WhatAbility Foundation, Todd Liubinskas, and was a raging success.
The Let’s Get Going art show was in honour of the late Mike Bailey OAM, who was a fierce supporter of Wests Tigers and served as Chairman and Director of the club.
Aboriginal Elder Aunty Kathy Dodd Farrawell, NSW Local Woman of the Year and well known Indigenous artist, was a regular visitor and mentor to The Let’s Get Going Crew in the lead up to the art exhibition.
The Official Opening Smoke Ceremony was kindly funded by The City of Canada Bay Council.
Owner of Organica, Costa John Meitanis, says it’s important to be closely aligned with initiatives such as Let’s Get Going.
“We have a long-lasting relationship with the Inner West community.
It’s important for us to support local causes like the Let’s Get Going local charity event, and the Wests Tigers, to further demonstrate the care we have for our area."Organica owner John Meitanis
