Festival of Voices – Big Sing Bonfire!
Saturday 3rd July 2021, 5pm
On Saturday 3 July Mac Point came alive to the sounds of hundreds of voices, against the backdrop of the Festival of Voices bonfire. The line-up of feel good songs began at 5pm with the official lighting of the Bonfire and a stellar line-up of local performers.
We continued our partnership with Festival of Voices by selling candles to raise money for our 2021 Winter Appeal! A total of $992 was rasied on the night.
The Festival of Voices ran a Corporate Choir Challenge in the lead up to the Big Sing event, which raised $14,496 for our Winter Appeal! How amazing is that.
Thanks to Festival of Voices & all participants!
We are lucky enough to have many people out in the local community fundraise for us during the year, to help us raise vital funds for our diverse range of programs. It really inspires us to see the kindness and compassion the community has for their fellow Southern Tasmanias who are doing it tough, and we want to shout it from the roof tops how much we cherish our community fundraisers.
