AWFA charity event exceeds all expectations in support of mental health

AWFA’s charity clash raised more than $3000 towards mental health awareness on the Border.

Butterfly Football Fund, headed by Carlo Villani, collected $3015.20 from the second staging of the event.

Villani was pleased with the success of the day, with 650 people in attendance.

He paid special thanks to Wodonga Diamonds Football Club for the use of the facilities and the operation of the canteen, along with the coaches, players and referees, including guest stars Josh Kennedy, Isaac Hovar and Mackensy Mathews.

Villani also paid tribute to Bill Sinclair for marking the lines, as well as the Simpkin family who were present following the loss of their son, Matthew, earlier this year.

Special mention also went to Kristian Lindsay and Andrew Muir at Woolworths Lavington for providing food and drinks free of charge.

“Next year will be bigger and better again,” Villani said.

Those still wishing to donate to the cause can do so by transferring funds to Butterfly Football Fund.
