Tulip Time 2016

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 Manager Tourism 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 domestic and international visitors 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 2019 charity partner comes on the back of this year’s successful two week festival.

“This year more than 40,000 people passed through the gates of Corbett Gardens across the 14 day festival,” 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 2019 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 in the two week celebrations.

For further information, including a full list of eligibility criteria, contact the Destination Southern Highlands Tulip Time Officer, Lorna Bussell at lornajbussell@wsc.nsw.gov.au or phone (02) 4871 2888.

This year’s charity partners Dementia Australia and Wingecarribee Adult Day Care Centres, sponsors, supporters and suppliers will be recognised for their efforts at a morning tea being held in the Bowral CWA Rooms in Corbett Gardens on Wednesday 31 October 2018.
