Wishlist Jazz and Wine Festival last Saturday was an absolute hoot and raised over $25000 for Gympie Hospital patients and families. Thank you to everyone who came, to all the volunteers and Wishlist team, and to Barry from Eyes Wide Open Images for the fun photos.
Wishlist’s fifth Jazz and Wine Festival has been touted a success after raising over $25,000 for Gympie Hospital patients and families.
The event saw more than 350 people gather at The Pavilion on Sunday, August 7 to enjoy 70s nostalgic band Rufus Jack, powerhouse trio The Kitty Kats, and award-winning wine and gourmet food.
Wishlist Fundraising and Partnerships Manager Lisa Wilson said the vibe was electric in the new and improved location coupled with mild winter temperatures and a tremendous turnout.
“$25,000 raised in one afternoon is sensational. From the entire Wishlist team, we thank you Gympie from the bottom of our hearts for rallying behind your local hospital,” Ms Wilson said.
“We saw some incredible raffle and auction items, and we’d like to give a big thank you to the generous businesses and suppliers who donated to make the day a success, as well as those who bid competitively and purchased tickets.
“We’d love to say a huge thank you to our major sponsor One Agency Gympie, and event partners AJT Legal, SCHUH Group, Jobmatch Employment, Aspect Homes, Heads of Noosa, Civilvic, Bird & Hand Winery, Sunshine & Sons, Karinya Florist & Gifts, McCintocks Transport, McCintocks Fuel, and Power & Cartwright.”
