AUSTRALIAN SPIRIT PROJECT FINALE EVENT
AUSTRALIAN SPIRIT FAMILY FUN DAY NOVEMBER 10 2018, THE ENTERTAINMENT GROUNDS CENTRAL COAST
4 Racecourse Road, West Gosford
This exciting family fun day event is believed to be the first of its kind in NSW, the event is a vibrant collaboration between Art Studios Co-operative, all local RSL Sub Branches, Brisbane Water Legacy, Vietnam Veterans Peacekeepers Peacemakers Association Central Coast Sub Branch, National Servicemen's Association Gosford, Homes For Heroes, Australian Light Horse Association and contemporary veterans. Together we will organise and facilitate the Australian Spirit Event.
The Australian Spirit Family Day event will commemorate the WW1 centenary and unite our community in support and recognition of Australian Defence Force veterans and their families. The event will be held on November 10, 2018 at the Entertainment Grounds and we anticipate 5000+ to enjoy the action-packed program. Our crowd-pleasing line-up includes jousting, re-enactments, helicopter landing, band, dog and horse demonstrations, tank and chariot displays, chill-out lounge, mounted police, veterans’ services, art exhibitions, music, food, children’s dress-ups and entertainment.
The not-for-profit event will also showcase the invaluable services offered by veteran and community organisations including employment and education, health and well-being, community inclusion and connection. It will create supportive, inclusive networks for veterans and their families, raise awareness of the challenges faced by veterans and the need for continued community support and empowerment of those who have served and still serve our country. We are also hoping it will provide the environment to bridge the gap between contemporary veterans and existing veteran associations, or at least start the conversation.
Entry is by gold coin donation and funds raised above the cost of the event will be donated to Integra Service Dogs Australia to cover training costs of service dogs for veterans recovering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other health issues incurred during service. http://www.isda.com.au/
This collaborative event will create an environment that could inspire collaborations for future events within veteran associations and community organisations, working together for the common good of those who serve our country.
