Support needed for event

30 Oct 2014

Support needed for event Image

The Rotary Club of Docklands is seeking support from local businesses for an event it is holding in Docklands this month.

The Docklands Festival of Giving, on November 30, aims to highlight the generosity that exists within the Docklands community.

According to Docklands Rotary member Loryn Clark, the idea of the festival is for local businesses to show what they do for the community.

The club has asked local businesses and corporates to sponsor a marquee for the day, which they can use to exhibit how they fulfil their social responsibility and support the community.

Alternatively, businesses may choose to sponsor a marquee on behalf of a charity or not-for-profit organisation to use on the day to promote their work.

Festival-goers will be invited to vote on which business has contributed the most to the community, with the winning business to be awarded on the day.

The festival will also feature a range of events throughout the day to keep the whole family entertained.

Rotary’s Alex Hoe said over 100 modified cars would be on show at the piazza and along the waterfront.

“We’ll be bringing some tastefully, well-designed cars to Docklands so the crowds can appreciate them.”

“We’re looking at bringing all different sorts of cars, classic cars, bikes, all with good paint jobs and tastefully done wheels that are all within the legal limits of modification.”

The event will also include a zumba-thon, koori dance demonstrations, laughing yoga, music, face-painting, stilt walkers and roving entertainers.

“We’re trying to create an event for the whole family,” Ms Clark said.

Mr Hoe agreed, saying: “We want to keep this festival going and create an annual fundraising event.”

The Docklands Festival of Giving will be held at NewQuay Piazza on Sunday, November 30 from 10am to 6.30pm.

All funds raised through the event will be donated to the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Businesses interested in hosting or sponsoring a marquee should contact Ms Clark on 0418 390 334.
