Home 2012 Botanic to Bridge beneficiary applications open now
Community organisations are being encouraged to apply to be the 2012 Botanic to Bridge beneficiary, with a new process announced today by Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC).
For the past two years the Botanic to Bridge event has not only promoted the benefits of healthy and active lifestyles, but has contributed over $42,000 to community organisations and $45,000 to local schools.
GPC CEO Leo Zussino, agreed the Botanic to Bridge was a unique event providing an opportunity to promote healthy lifestyles and financial support for worthy community groups.
“The Botanic to Bridge is a valued event in GPC’s community investment portfolio, and continues to deliver positive results particularly in the areas of health, education and financial support for community projects,” Mr Zussino said.
“With many organisations seeking support, to deliver worthwhile community projects, GPC saw an opportunity to broaden the beneficiary application process for the Botanic to Bridge event.
“The Botanic to Bridge is non-profit event, with every dollar from registrations going back to the community and our schools.
“GPC together with sponsors and B2B participants, can provide an opportunity for local organisations to access funding for their projects.
“I am delighted GPC has had the opportunity to support two significant projects as a result of the 2010 and 2011 Botanic to Bridge events, and I would encourage local organisations and clubs to participate in the application process for the 2012 Botanic to Bridge beneficiary.”
Last year, Rosella Park School received over $22,000 from the Botanic to Bridge to build a sensory garden to enrich its students learning opportunities.
Tannum Sands Surf Lifesaving Club benefited from the 2010 event, receiving over $20,000 to purchase vital rescue equipment.
Local organisations can apply online or contact GPC on 4976 1625.
