Help family’s dream to sponsor a guide dog

The Times recently reported that a Heathridge family was hosting The Butterfly Kisses Cocktail Gala as part of their bid to raise $30,000 for Guide Dogs WA.

Grace Austin (4), whose mum Felicity is behind the drive, was diagnosed with septo-optic dysplasia a week after she was born, which left her with less than 5 per cent vision.

The Austin family are now hoping to give back after support from organisations such as VisAbility has helped get Grace to where she is today.

Felicity hopes the guide dog they sponsor will help give someone else the support and independence they need.

Quality Printers & Cartridges is donating $3 for every order that contains a Premium Plus cartridge to the cause until March 31.

To book tickets for the gala, which will be held at the Mt Lawley Golf Club on March 28, call Felicity on 0400 198 166 or email bnfaustin@bigpond. com.
