Our 2016 Major Sponsor Le Cornu Furniture are to host an outdoor family cinema event with all proceeds to benefit the Little Heroes Foundation this February.
The event, which is to take place on Saturday the 27th of February, will include a screening of the Penguins of Madagascar as well as free jumping castles, face painters, various other kids entertainment and much more.
Entry will be gold coin donation per person with all proceeds to benefit the Little Heroes Foundation. “For over 160 years Le Cornu has been one of SA’s most iconic brands who not only strive for the highest level of customer service but are also committed to giving back to the community and making a change in our society.” Ian Vann, General Manager of Le Cornu South Australia stated, “We recognise the fantastic work that the Little Heroes Foundation provide and are delighted to be able to support their latest project in the hope to improve the lives of seriously ill children in South Australia.”
Little Heroes Foundation is currently building Australia’s first ‘Centre for Robotics and Innovation’ with doors set to open in April 2016.
This 4 million dollar project, the largest the charity has ever undertaken, will be based at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and will include a world class robotic gymnasium with the latest rehabilitation equipment designed for children and adolescents being treated for serious illness as well as a five year clinical research study to uncover new ways to help kids re-learn everyday tasks like walking.Currently Little Heroes has raised just shy of $1.2 million dollars for this project. Little Heroes Foundation Chairman Chris McDermott says that any events like the Le Cornu Outdoor Cinema Night embody everything the foundation stands for.
“Little Heroes Foundation is all about family so this is the perfect event for us. The whole family together and having fun,” he said. “This [Centre for Robotics and Innovation] is the largest project we have ever undertaken so every contribution helps and we are very grateful for the support of Le Cornu”
