Come Fly with Me

On 4th September, one of our Windgap friends and generous supporter Fay Cohen, along with her friends has organised a fundraising event for Windgap to purchase a hoist vehicle. The event “Come Fly With Me” was held at Slide Bar. The night involved comedy entertainment from Miles High Club and dinner. It was a great night which helped raise Windgap over $30.000.

Inflight entertainment has never been this good as your fabulous flight attendants, Judy Free, Lyn Flight-Service, and Miles High serve you up a dazzling history of musical aviation, not to mention upgrades, downgrades and first class service! Special inflight entertainment includes Susan Boyle and Julia Gillard.

Walk with Windgap

On Sunday 16th September, our supported employees and staff walked across the Harbour Bridge for The Sunday Telegraph Family Run. It was all in the name of raising funds and awareness for Windgap Foundation. Everyone finished the raise effortlessly, with big smiles on their faces. With our black and white “Walk With Windgap” t-shirts, we have proudly crossed the finish line and raised $1.600 through the generous public donations. Thank you to all our supporters who have participated and donated. We are looking forward to next year’s race!

Windgap Gala Ball

Windgap held its inaugural fundraising ball on Saturday 30 June. The aim of the ball was to bring together people who would like to support Windgap in its efforts to raise money. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the comedian, the fabulous band, the great food and the lovely company.
