charity insurance partner, KidzWish

KidzWish Golf Day – proud sponsor for our charity insurance client

The Acacia Insurance team thoroughly enjoyed participating in and sponsoring our charity insurance client KidzWish’s golf day, which raised $25,000! The event was held on 9 Oct at The Links Golf Course, Shell Cove.

These funds will go towards the KidzWish Sports Academy, a specialised sports and recreation program for children with a disability, illness or unable to attend mainstream sporting programs. The Academy provides a safe and fun environment where all children can feel included and their physical and psychological health needs are nurtured and met. This funding will support KidzWish to grow this academy over the next 12 months to include more children in attendance and more local community sporting organisations to partner with KidzWish in introducing a social inclusion development program.

Well done to all involved, it was a great day for a great cause!

About KidzWish

KidzWish was founded in 2004 to fulfil a need for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability through a large Children’s Christmas Party. In 2010, KidzWish expanded by providing therapy and support services. The KidzWish Children’s Christmas Party saw its 16th year in 2019.

KidzWish is now delivering therapy, support work and assisted programs built on a family centred approach, through individual and group sessions at home, preschool, school and within the community. They provide support workers to assist children with social skills, personal confidence and community participation and offer respite to our KidzWish families. Their assisted programs are made up of Music and Dance programs, Sports Academy, an interactive games session, and parent and sibling support groups.

2020 will see new programs including a tailored approach to our Children’s Christmas Party, making it a fun and inclusive event for our families with a need.
