Wishlist would also like to acknowledge the hard working and dedicated Spring Carnival Committee responsible for raising more than $400,000 since the inaugural Wishlist Spring Carnival Gala in 2009. The event committee is comprised of volunteers who are among the Sunshine Coast’s most successful businesspeople, and we are lucky to have their support.
The funds raised have gone a long way towards initiiatives supporting local juvenile diabetes patients, a four bay paediatric ward in the Nambour Hospital Emergency Department, 5 years of SCkoping camps for children living in families affected by mental illness, drugs or alcohol and equipment to streamline the diagnosis of prostate cancer on the Sunshine Coast.
This extremely successful event can not happen without our volunteer organising committee, sponsors, table ambassadors, auction prize donors, guests attending the event and the celebrity entertainers who add the clinching wow factor.
