Community invited to celebrate giving with the Buderim Foundation

Everyone is invited to join in the the spirit of community at the Foundation’s Community Grants Celebration on Saturday, September 9 from 2pm-4pm on the lawn between the Buderim Memorial Hall and the Craft Cottage.

Buderim Foundation Grants committee chair Lisa Edward said this event is the most important day on the Foundation’s calendar so we are planning an extra special celebration.

“This year we are celebrating not only the $65,000 in community grants we are awarding but the more than $400,000 we have been able to gift to Buderim/4556 community organisations in the 10 years since our grants program commenced.

“So, we are raising the bar, making it a special family affair with a strong emphasis on young people – celebrating with family, food and entertainment,” Lisa said.

For the tenth consecutive year, the Buderim Foundation is providing funding for community organisations that provide services and support for residents throughout the 4556 Post Code area.

As well as the grant presentations, the afternoon will include performances from the Buderim State School performing troupes, Hot Ginger Chorus, Coastal Caring Clowns and the Buderim Male Choir. There will also be a free sausage sizzle and cupcakes for the young at heart and tea and scones will be available for purchase.

“The Buderim Foundation is very proud to support the community, with 100% of the donations to the Foundation invested forever, with the earnings from that investment used to provide for the community now and into the future.

So, put the afternoon of September 9 in your diary and join us for this great community event.
