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 Acting Group Manager, Tourism, Economic Development and Events, Steve Rosa is encouraging all eligible charities to lodge an application.
“Tulip Time is our largest annual event, bringing 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 2014 charity partner comes on the back of this year’s hugely successful two week festival.
“Despite the weather, preliminary figures suggest that our visitation numbers were on par with our 2012 event, which was the most successful festival since its inception 53 years ago,” said Mr Rosa.
“We’re confident that we can build on this year’s event with next year’s successful charity partner playing an integral role in our 2014 planning and promotions,” Mr Rosa added.
Apart from promotional opportunities and exposure, the successful charity partner will also benefit from several fundraising opportunities during the annual springtime festival.
Potential charity partners must meet certain criteria including being Australian based, be registered with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and be able to be actively involved in the two week celebrations.
For further information, including a full list of eligibility criteria, visit www.tuliptime.net.au or contact Council’s Event Coordinator, Debbie Pearce on phone (02) 4871 2888.
This year’s Charity Partners, CanTeen Australia and Kollege of Knowledge Kommittee for Kids Inc. (KKKK), sponsors and suppliers will be recognised for their efforts at a morning tea being held at the Mittagong RSL on 31 October 2013.
