It was a page out of a fairy tale for Kassidy whose dream of hosting a Ball at Brisbane City Hall was brought to life last year.
Making her Cinderella-like entrance in arms with Brisbane Broncos players, Delouise Hoeter, Sam Thaiday and Billy Walters, Kassidy was blown away by the reception she received from the 300 guests who shared in her dream.
“It felt like I was a princess in a movie walking in with my entourage. It’ll be a memory forever,” reminisced Kassidy.
Entering Endeavour Foundation’s Imagine What’s Possible competition with her dream, Kassidy wanted to create an opportunity for young adults to have fun and dance together.
“Dancing is my thing. And I just want everyone to experience the thing that I love. It makes me happy and joyful,” Kassidy said.
And Kassidy did not fall short on her promise – Brisbane City Hall was buzzing as people with all abilities joined her on the dance floor in what can only be described as the celebration of year.
“To actually have a dream come true is rare, and it wasn’t just Kassidy’s dream, it was a dream for a lot of people,” Kassidy’s father, Ed, said.
Kassidy was among five people to have their dreams come true from the Imagine What’s Possible competition.
“Thank you to everyone, including Endeavour Foundation, for making my dream come true,” Kassidy said.
Kassidy is employed and supported by Geebung Social Enterprise in a varied role, which includes packaging items and mailing.
“Endeavour Foundation gave me the confidence to give me a great future,” Kassidy added.
“It really helps to have very supportive people around you. I’d say to others, to keep dreaming because one day they could come true. Just go for it and make it happen.”Make your dreams and the dreams of people with disability a reality when you purchase tickets with Endeavour Foundation Lotteries.
