Come and chill for the kids

30 Nov 2010

Docklands student Catalina Gonzalez wants the suburb to get behind her and support charitable work being undertaken to help children affected by war and terrorism.

The 30-year-old Carrick tourism student has helped organise “Chill out for Charity”, a six-hour event in the city from 4 pm on Sunday, December 5.

Catalina became involved in the charity Renew the Spirit Foundation last year through her interests in dance.  Since then, she’s fully committed to improving the lives of traumatised children in Cambodia, Nepal and in her native Colombia.

“Renew the Spirit uses arts therapy as a technique and I’m a dancer.  So it all relates nicely,” she said.

Catalina lives in the CBD, but attends the Carrick Institute of Education in Docklands.  She works in a luxury hotel and always recommends Docklands to visitors.

Chill out for Charity is being held at The Order of Melbourne, 275 Swanston St and costs $5 at the door.  It features 10 performers, Fair-trade stalls and a body-painting demonstration.
