Congratulations to Cooroy Chamber of Commerce for winning the Small Business Festival & Events category at the Sunshine Coast Business Awards last month for the Australian Body Art Festival.
Collecting the award on behalf of the Chamber, were Kerrie Bryant-Adams & Danielle Taylor from Firefly Solutions who have both worked tirelessly to bring the event to the success it is today.
If you haven’t been to the event, put 6 & 7 April 2019 in your diary and make sure you are at Apex Park because the team have secured some substantial funding to ensure that the 2019 event with a theme of “Other Worlds”, will be bigger and better than ever.
With $34,500 from the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund, $12,000 from Queensland Events & Tourism’s QDEP grant and $15,353.78 from Queensland Government’s Gambling Community Benefit Fund, the event is off to a stellar start.
Sponsorships are now open with some savvy businesses already securing sponsorships including Cooroy Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank, Wythes Real Estate, Eumundi & District Historical Association, Tourism Noosa, Regional Training Services Queensland, Firefly Solutions, RACV Noosa, Tomfoolery, Mehron Australia, Face Paints Australia, Looney Bin and Derivan. The Australian Government funding is matched funding, so this is a great year to get involved as a sponsor as your contributions will be matched meaning your sponsorship goes twice as far. There are a variety of sponsorship packages available for all budgets.
