Whitsunday Regional Council has resolved to waive the event application fees for the Airlie Beach Domestic Violence Candle Lighting Ceremony and the Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre Car Show and Swap Meet.
Acting Chief Executive Officer Mr Barry Omundson said Council is pleased to continue its support for local events in the region which help bring a sense of community to our Whitsunday residents.
“Council has waived the $383 Event Application Fee for the Whitsunday Crisis and Counselling Service to hold a candle lighting ceremony on Wednesday 4 May to remember those who have died as a result of domestic violence,” Mr Omundson said.
“We recognise the value of the Whitsunday Crisis and Counselling Service in providing valuable information, support, counselling and court support to families and individuals affected by domestic violence in the Whitsunday Region,” he said.
Mr Omundson said that Council has also waived the Event Application Fee associated with the Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre’s Car Show and Swap Meet held last Sunday.
“The Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre has a strong standing in the community and will donate all of the proceeds from the Car Show and Swap Meet to community programs and projects,” he said.
“As a not-for-profit organisation, they need our support and we are only too happy to assist.”
