(Newswire.net — September 24, 2015) Canberra City, ACT — Michael Koundouris of the family owned Koundouris Group recently sponsored the annual Cerebral Palsy Fashion Parade, a show that has been running for five years and raises funds to benefit the families of children with CP.   Families in the ACT who are dealing with cerebral palsy benefit from the proceeds of the show, with monies raised being used for treatment, services and equipment for children and babies with CP. 

The show featured silent and live auction items as well as the Supabarn wine raffle and a fashion parade that showcased the latest fashions from Westfield Woden.  The afternoon was filled with entertainment, live music, the fashion show and an afternoon tea and champagne reception.   The event was a rousing success, raising a great deal of money to support the families of children with CP and bringing a spotlight on the problems these families face as well as their need for treatment and services.

The annual fashion show event is held at the Southern Cross Club in Canberra, with many supporters returning year after year to show their solidarity and offer help for families dealing with CP.  Ros Koundouris is on the organization committee for the event, while Michael Koundouris and his group are sponsors and supporters.  The Koundouris Group has been involved in supporting the show for five years, and has a 20-year association with the movement to draw attention to the needs of families with a child with CP.  Michael Koundouris built the Cerebral Palsy House in Canberra, which provides treatment and services for babies and children with CP. 

Koundouris and his group are involved in a number of charities that work to support worthy causes in the Canberra area.  They often donate time and money to these causes to help them succeed.  For more information on Michael Koundouris, the Koundouris Group and the group’s work with local charities, visit http://www.koundouris.com.au/.
