Brighter and Rotary Clubs ignite 2019 BBQ partnership
Australia Day BBQs on Saturday ignited a new partnership between the Rotary Clubs of Penrith and Kwinana and the Brighter initiative.
Throughout 2019, Brighter will work with the Rotary Clubs of Penrith and Kwinana on four major community events each, covering the costs of the food and equipment for BBQs to feed the masses.
Rotary Club of Penrith President, John Scott said partnerships are critical for their organisation as it means that all money raised from the BBQs can be put straight back into the Penrith community.
“We are thrilled to be working with Brighter in 2019. Knowing that we are able to host these BBQs without finding additional funds to hold them is invaluable to our organisation, and we will be able to give even more back to Penrith.”
According to Philanthropy Australia, around a quarter of charities rely on giving and philanthropy for 50% or more of their total income. In an era of online donations, supporting traditional fundraising efforts also supports smaller community groups.
Director of Communications for Brighter, Sarah Browne said: “The community BBQ is an Australian tradition – and one of the ways gas is part of our everyday lives. We hope that this new partnership allows the Rotary Club to contribute even more funds from its great BBQs to programs which we know are important to the community.”Explore
