Australia Day Award Recipients to Open the 2019 National Show

Kate & Tick Everett, National Recipients of the 2019 Australia Day “Local Hero Award” will open the 2019 ASHS National Show.

Following the tragic death of their teenage daughter, Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett in January 2018, following extensive bullying, Kate and Tick Everett founded Dolly’s Dream to create positive change and a legacy to their daughter. Their advocacy has resulted in governments taking childhood bullying and its devastating impacts more seriously

Kate & Tick will share the tragic story of their daughter Amy “Dolly” Everett, who was the victim of bullying and ended her young life at just 14 years of age. Dolly’s Dream has been established by her family and friends in her memory. With a mission to empower and educate our community to prevent bullying and cyberbullying, Dolly’s Dream will act as a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves and create change.

An Auction will be held at the 2019 ASHS National Show to support Dolly’s Dream. Jackie Long from the Committee, said “The Everett Family have been long term breeders and supporters of Australian Stock Horses. Therefore, we wanted to show our support and help raise awareness about the seriousness of bullying and its devastating effects on children and their families. A successful Fundraising Auction was held in Camden at the Youth National Show recently by our Moss Vale ASH Branch who raised $20,000. We are hoping to achieve a better result through the Auction at the 2019 ASHS National Show. We really want to make a difference in the lives of children and their families affected by bullying and cyberbullying.”

So far the Auction has attracted lots of donated products, generously provided by; Glen Denholm Whipmaker, Horseland Narellan & Richmond, Grovers Country Clothing, Hugh Sawrey Print, Dolly’s Dream and Stallion Services. Further donations would be much appreciated, please contact Jackie Long on 0418 441 909.

The Official Opening will be held on Saturday, 2nd  March from 7 pm, followed by the auction proudly supporting Dolly’s Dream.
