Fundraising

Windgap undertakes a number of Fundraising Events throughout the year to help with causes close to our hearts and clients. Over the years we have raised much needed funds for a new hoist vehicle, our Transition to Work initiative, our Hospitality and Learning Centre and our Life After Work program. We are so thankful for the generosity of the community and would love for you to join us in any way.

 

Windgap Gala Ball

annual fundraising 3rd

The Windgap Gala Ball is the centrepiece of our Fundraising Event Calendar and a prominent night in the Sydney Social Community. The evening combines a fun filled spectacle full of entertainment and laughs, with a powerful endeavour of raising funds for our clients and programs. Every year, the theme takes on a new personality with this year’s spectacle returning us to the 1930’s Swing Era. The Gala Ball is a large scale event that is truly memorable and has delivered a range of resources and outcomes that have changed the lives of our Service Users. We are very thankful to Volunteer Project Manager, Maggi Brown who has devoted countless hours making this event the success it is today.

The Ball attracts many members of esteem from the public as well as receiving significant media coverage. We are privileged to have a group of great donors and sponsors that support us on a consistent basis. We would love to add to this list and offer a range of benefits, inclusive of; significant coverage in our publications, media exposure and increased staff performance and loyalty from socially responsible actions. For a more extensive conversation about Ball Sponsorship, please contact Darrin on 8337 3600.

Due to its size, we are always in demand for help, be it in the form of donating prizes for our Auctions and Gala Raffle, volunteering to sell raffle tickets, or dedicating time within your community to bring friends and family along. Whether you can give a few hours of your time, or become a Major Sponsor, there is no contribution too small that Windgap doesn’t appreciate. Come join us in a very special night.

The breakfast includes Full Buffet, Guinness on Tap and plenty of entertainment from live bands, Irish dancers and comedians. On the day, we also run a raffle with some great prizes. The day is a great opportunity to catch up with friends, family, colleagues and clients to support a great cause and enjoy Irish hospitality at its finest.

Walk with Windgap

annual fundraising 2nd

Every September, our Supported Employees, Service Participants and Staff walk across the Harbour Bridge as part of the Family Fun Run component of the Blackmores Running Festival. It is a beautiful day full of fun and cheer with a rare opportunity to walk across the bridge and marvel at Sydney’s most picturesque and beautiful sites. Members of team Windgap represent with “Walk With Windgap” shirts and fundraise within the community for completing the challenge. We would love for you to join us and see how truly inspirational (and competitive) our service users and staff are. If you have an interest in running, and would like to push yourself a little further, we would love to have representation at the Marathon events on the day, and for you to choose Windgap as your charity of choice.

For more information on events generally, please contact our Fundraising Coordinator: Darrin Gordon on 0450 300 555 or email on dgordon@windgap.org.au
