Thank you Sunshine Coast for helping us to raise an incredible $17,127.46 at this year’s Noosa Come Together festival held on June 11.
In its second year, the Noosa Come Together event attracted around 6,000 people this year who were able to enjoy a glorious Sunshine Coast winter’s day complete with plenty of live music, food stalls, children’s rides and water activities including sailing at Noosaville.
Funds raised from the event are donated to local organisations which provide sporting activities for children with disabilities, including Noosa Yacht & Rowing Club’s Sailability program, Riding for the Disabled and Disabled Surfers Association.
The 121 Care Emergency Fund, which helps people with disabilities living on the Sunshine Coast who are in distress, was also a beneficiary of funds raised on the day.
“It really was an incredible day to see so many people in the community coming out to support a nascent festival like this which we expect will just keep building,” 121 Care General Manager, Kym Chomley, said.
“There is so very much to love about the Sunshine Coast. The weather, the beaches, the bushland and the wonderfully generous community which time and again comes out to show support for locals.
“The money donated to the 121 Care Emergency Fund will help people with disabilities who currently receive inadequate or no government funding to get the support and assistance they need and we are very thankful for the donation.”
Noosa Yacht & Sailing Club Manager, Paul Blundell, said he was thrilled the second Noosa Come Together festival was supported so well by the local community.
In 2016, the inaugural Noosa Come Together festival raised $10,700 which was donated to Sailabillity.
121 Care, Noosa Yacht & Sailing Club and Music4Children would like to thank all those who attended and volunteered on the day, the musicians for generously donating their time and the event’s major sponsors Laguna Real Estate, Coast2Coast Earthmoving and Noosa Graphica.
We’ll see you at next year’s Noosa Come Together festival.
