Family fun day to celebrate first Easter Appeal in almost three decades
Telstra Plaza at Adelaide Oval will be abuzz Easter Monday (6 April) with plenty of family fun activities on offer as part of the TeamKids Beyond Bank Easter Appeal, an initiative of the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation.
South Australia’s first televised Easter Appeal in almost three decades, the TeamKids Beyond Bank Easter Appeal will air live throughout the day on Channel 9 Adelaide in its bid to raise $2 million this year to support sick children and their families at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
The Appeal, which will include performances by some of Australia’s best talent, such as Anthony Callea, Eddie Perfect and Rhonda Burchmore, will be broadcast on the big screen at Telstra Plaza as part of the entertainment.
In between tracking the success of the Appeal on the big screen, kids will be treated to an Easter egg hunt, bouncing acrobats, creative cooking classes, face painting, an art and play zone, and much more! At the Beyond Bank marquee we will have Nimble from the Credit Union Christmas Pageant – take a photo of your child sitting on Nimble for a gold coin donation.
Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO Sam Tolley invites the community to join in the family fun day at Telstra Plaza and help support the cause.
“It’s been more than 25 years since the last televised Easter Appeal in South Australia and we’re very excited to invite the community to be a part of this special event,” Mr Tolley said.
“There will be plenty of entertainment for families and all money raised on the day will contribute to our Easter Appeal and support us in funding vital equipment, services and research needed for sick babies and children at the hospital.”
As well as attending the family fun day, people are encouraged to support the Appeal through donations on Easter Monday by phone on 1800 336 334 or online at www.beyondbank.com.au/teamkids
