Blue Datto Calling for Community Support


Local charity the Blue Datto Foundation is calling for community support leading into their major annual fundraiser.
Blue Datto’s Gala Dinner will take place on Saturday 19th October at the Hawkesbury Race Club and there are several ways you can get involved to help the Foundation save lives on our roads.

Over the last 10 years, a staggering 3,115 young people have been killed on Australian roads including ‘the kid in the Blue Datto’ Philip Vassallo, the 17-year-old son of Blue Datto Co-Founder Colleen Vassallo.

“Blue Datto was founded in the Hawkesbury and we’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of the local community who have helped us achieve so much in the last five years” said Colleen.

“Since launching the Foundation in 2016, we’ve educated more than 17,000 young people across the Greater Western Sydney region, and this wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing community”.

Blue Datto still has tickets available for the big night! Tickets are $130pp or a Corporate Table of 10 for $1,850 which includes some special VIP extras. If you’re unable to attend, you can still purchase a $5 Raffle Ticket to go into the draw for a $4,000 travel voucher.

Individuals or local businesses may also like to donate a prize for the evening.

Details are available at or you can call their Penrith Office on 02 8999 8005.

Last year’s Gala Dinner raised over $100,000 and organisers are hoping to do the same in 2019.

All money raised will go towards delivering Keeping Safe programs for young people in Western Sydney and preventing unnecessary loss of life on our roads.
