The aim of the Special Children’s Christmas Party is to provide up to 5,000 children from all over the region with a day they will never forget.
The children come from four major groups: Children who may be seriously ill, intellectually or physically impaired and also the underprivileged. The Party is not open to the public but to all Sponsors and the children and their families. We are expecting approximately 7,000 – 9,000 people.
We put on a free day including lunch, drinks, fruit, lollies, ice creams and chips and a three hour live stage show. Other entertainment for the children includes face painting, rides, interactive displays and much more.
Of course no Christmas party is complete without Santa Claus. Each child will receive at least two or three high quality presents.
The Party has been running for over 20 years and working with our friends at 2Day FM
with proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish® Australia
, so we want to make it one of the best day's ever for these brave children.
