Tulip Time 2016

Wingecarribee Shire Council is proud to announce Redkite as this year’s Tulip Time partner.

Council’s Manager Tourism and Events, Steve Rosa said the team were looking forward to working with the charity in the lead up to this year’s 57th annual Tulip Time festivities.

“Redkite is a wonderful Australian charity providing essential support to children and young people with cancer,” Steve said.

“We think Redkite is the perfect fit for Tulip Time and we couldn’t be happier with their involvement.”

Redkite is one of Australia’s leading national cancer charities with over 30 years’ experience in providing professional and essential support to children and young people living with cancer including their families.

In 2016 Redkite supported over 1040 people from NSW including seven families from the Southern Highlands.  Across the country the figure exceeds 3,700 individuals each year.

Redkite receives no government funding and relies on donations from the community with amounts over $2 being tax deductible.

“Tulip Time is our Shire’s largest annual event bringing in tens of thousands of visitors from across the country to the Highlands,” Steve added.

“There’s no doubt that being involved in the festival brings an enormous profile to our partners and we’re confident that this year’s festivities will help shine a light on the fabulous work that Redkite undertakes.”

This year’s Tulip Time celebrations will run for 13 days from Tuesday 12 September until Sunday 24 September 2017.
