UNITING to raise funds for Aboriginal youth affected by the ongoing bushfire emergency, Bairnsdale Regional Unlimited Sports (BRUS) and the Koorie Basketball Academy are hosting a Bushfire Charity For Youth ALLSTARS Game.
Held at the Bairnsdale Aquatic and Recreation Centre on Saturday 22 February from 4.30pm, the ALLSTARS Game brings together some elite sporting talent suiting up to help raise funds for young people in the fire affected area of East Gippsland.
The main event starts at 7pm with the BRUS ALLSTARS, coached by Brian Kerle and Kevin Hood, taking on the KBA ALLSTARS, coached by Uncle Danny Morseu and Tee Hood. Amongst a number of elite players and celebrities taking part including Nova Peris OAM, Chris Johnson, Nathan Lovett-Murray, Darren Lucas, Deba George and many more!
Single admission is $10 while a family pass is $15, so there’s plenty of reason to bring everyone along to support a deadly night of basketball for a worthy cause! As well as the superstars suiting up, there will be an auction featuring incredible items like Patty Mills signed AIB jersey, Ben Simmons signed basketball, a Chicago Bulls Jersey signed by Zach Lavine and some other elite collectables!
BRUS would like to assist all Aboriginal Youth that are affected by the East Gippsland Bushfires to stay connected and engaged in community through healthy active lifestyles. Their focus is to engage young people in active sports activities and events, creating a culturally safe space for young people and families to gather together and unite around health, wellbeing, relieving stress and gaining support from the community.
Through their partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, all donations over $2 AUD are tax deductible.
All funds raised at the event will go to BRUS Sports Charity to support young people in the fire affected area of East Gippsland. To learn more about BRUS Sports Charity visit: bit.ly/BRUSAllStarGame
