Council calls for 2013 Tulip Time charity partner

19 October, 2012Posted in: Events, Tourism

Wingecarribee Shire Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from charities wishing to become the official charity partner for next year’s Tulip Time celebrations.

Council’s Tourism Manager Steve Rosa encouraged all eligible charities to lodge an application.

“Tulip Time is our largest annual event that brings tens of thousands of visitors from across the country to our region,” he said.

“There’s no doubt that being involved in the festival brings an enormous profile to our partners.”

The call for the 2013 charity partner comes on the back of this year’s hugely successful two week festival.

“Preliminary numbers would suggest that we’ve had our most successful year to date,” said Mr Rosa. “Even eclipsing our Golden Anniversary celebrations held two years ago.”

“We’re confident that we can build on this year’s success and next year’s successful charity partner would be integral to our 2013 planning and promotions,” Mr Rosa added.

Apart from promotional opportunities and exposure, the successful charity partner will also be the recipient of several fundraising activities during the annual springtime festival.

Potential charity partners must meet certain criteria including being Australian based, have a direct link to the Wingecarribee Shire, be registered with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and be able to be actively involved in the celebrations.

For further information, including a full list of eligibility criteria, visit or contact Council’s Event Coordinator on phone (02) 4871 2888.

This year’s Charity Partner, Lifeline Macarthur and Southern Highlands, will be presented with proceeds from this year’s event at a cheque hand-over ceremony in November.
