It was a big weekend for KARI, as the NRL headed into their Indigenous Round for the season. KARI Foundation would be represented strongly across the board through community partnerships.
On Thursday night we had the opportunity to attend the West Tigers vs. Cowboys match.
The pre-game entertainment consisted of the Indigenous National Anthem, which was performed by one of KARI’s VIP (Vocal Identification Program) members, Rebecca Hatch.
The West Tigers came away with a strong win on Thursday night.
All 17 player-worn jerseys from Thursday’s game will be signed by the entire squad. They are available for purchase via auction here.
A portion of the proceeds will go towards KARI Foundation for community programs.
In Saturday’s match, the KARI logo featured on the back of the Sydney Roosters Indigenous jerseys for their game against the New Zealand Warriors.
The Roosters prevailed with a 32-0 win, proving to be a strong side.
We have an existing relationship with the Roosters, as we are the major partner of their Club’s Tasha Gale Cup side, the Sydney Roosters Indigenous Academy.
To cap off a big weekend of football, KARI Foundation and the South Sydney Rabbitohs joined as match day partners for the Indigenous round.
The Rabbitohs triumphed over the Dragons with a 24-10 win.
Over 300 of our Indigenous Youth and their families attended the Rabbitohs match. This was due to our KARI match day community partnership.
KARI are proud to have been heavily involved in the NRL’s Indigenous Round. It wouldn’t have been possible without the community partnerships we have with the 3 teams. It’s excellent to see these clubs joining forces with KARI and the NRL to drive positive inclusive change.
