2022 Gala Charity Dinner tickets now available!
On Saturday 19th November we will be holding our first Great Illawarra Walk, Gala Charity Dinner. To be held at Shellharbour City Centre at the Council’s function rooms from 6.30pm. The dinner will be a delicious three course meal with a drinks package included. There will also be entertainment and a charity auction.
Tickets are now available at $150 each. The best news is that every cent of the $150 ticket price will be donated in full to the IAS so we can help them build the gym for young athletes living with a disability.
We are able to do this thanks to our wonderful sponsors South 32 who are paying for the food and drinks. Council are also providing the venue free of charge. A shout out to our Mayor Chris Homer for his help with this.
This promises to be an amazing night so click on the button above to secure your tickets now. Numbers are limited so don’t delay.
WE'RE BACK FOR 2023!
We are back for 2023!
Registrations are now open for the 2023 Great Illawarra Walk.
As part of our commitment to supporting young people, we have partnered with the Illawarra Academy of Sport through their Athlete with a Disability (AWD) program.
We will be raising funds to build a purpose-fit gym for athletes with disabilities. Our goal is to raise $150,000 - we know this is a big number but we are determined to get there!!
