The 2021 Making Waves Foundation Sail Port Stephens Campaign was a resounding success in terms of funds raised, publicity, and community engagement.
The event held from April 18-22 returned a record $50,000 net profit, our programs featured in local newspapers (Port Stephens Examiner & Newcastle Weekly) and television (NBN), and 140 new supporters were recruited. This is in addition to promoting our brand to the local community, and reaching almost 10,000 people through social media.
All new records set for us at Sail Port Stephens!
We also achieved an exciting new ‘first’ - yacht racing with school students on-board for the very first time.
These outstanding results could not have happened if it wasn’t for the amazing teamwork demonstrated by our volunteers, clients, carers, event partners, donors and staff.
