On Saturday, 19 June, at the Red Earth Arts Precinct in Karratha, the 2021 Pilbara Community Services Excellence Awards’ Gala Dinner was held. The awards celebrated the resilience, creativity, collaboration and leadership of both individuals and organisations working in the community services sector across the Pilbara.
YMAC was proud to be a supporter of this event, once again; this year sponsoring the award category “Community Spirit (Volunteer)”. When presenting this award on the night, YMAC’s Co-Chairperson, Pilbara Region – Board of Directors, Mrs Natalie Parker, acknowledged:
“YMAC chose to sponsor this award, in particular, as we feel it is so important to recognise individuals in our community who go above and beyond to help others. These are people who choose to generously and selflessly give their time and energy to support and uplift other people, and whose work positively impacts the wellbeing of our community overall. We all share a responsibility in pursuing a bright future for our region and its people, and this is achieved by us working together, supporting one another, and combining our strength, resilience and empowerment to overcome challenges and create opportunities. The finalists in this category are all excellent examples of people in our community who demonstrate such impressive dedication and commitment, and who each make outstanding contributions to the betterment of the Pilbara region.”
