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 and Events Manager, Steve Rosa is encouraging all eligible charities to lodge an application.
“Tulip Time is the largest annual event in the state south of Sydney, 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 2016 charity partner comes as Council moves into the final preparations for this year’s festival.
“Last year more than 35,000 people flocked through the gates of Corbett Gardens across the 13 day festival, smashing the previous record of 33,000 set in 2012,” 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 2016 planning and promotions,” Mr Rosa added.
Apart from promotional opportunities and brand exposure, the successful charity partner will also be able to develop and manage a strong base of events and activities 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 across 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.
