This November, we held our first-ever Thank You – event. The event allowed us to say thank to our valued supporters for their contribution to the Community Centre over the years.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
Following the words by Winston Churchill, we want to express our genuine gratitude to our generous sponsors, donors and volunteers. Without your support, the Byron Community Centre wouldn’t be where it is today.
Thanks to your help and support, we are able to run essential projects that benefit vulnerable locals; social activities for older community members and inspiring events that foster community spirit and social connectivity.
Showing our community’s rich diversity
We are very excited to share that over 100 guests followed our invitation. This means that we were able to acknowledge over 100 valued supporters for their time, money and goods donated to Byron Community Centre.
The event started off in the late afternoon with light snacks and cool drinks on our lovely balcony. Overlooking the newly renovated Railway Park and with the sun setting, our guests happily mingled and socialised.
The official part of the event took place in our fantastic Byron Theatre and was started with a ‘Welcome to the Country’. Over the next 45 minutes, we introduced our guests to the vital services and projects we deliver throughout the year, like the seniors’ activities, the homeless projects and volunteering opportunities.
Your contribution makes a difference!
We hope that we were able to show how our programs and services have a positive impact on the community as we aim to empower, support and connect locals.
We think that the appreciation event was a huge success. It provided us with the perfect opportunity to showcase our supporters how we use their contributions and that they make a difference every day!
Our general manager adds, that “it was fantastic to see the smiles on people’s faces as we showed how their support benefited our community.”
We want to thank everyone who joined us for this special occasion. Your support means a lot to us and it was amazing to see a diverse cross-section of our community come together. We hope to continue the good work together in the future.
A special thank you goes to Brookies Gin, Stone & Wood and local band JaFFa for generously supporting the event with delicious beverages and amazing music.
