The Leura Gardens Festival is calling on local small businesses and community members to support the festival by becoming a “Friend of the Festival”.
For any event to be successful it is necessary to use advertising and other promotional activities, but it is important to ensure the cost of these activities does not impact on the proceeds, which go to the Blue Mountains District Anzac Memorial Hospital and other local health-related organisations.
While our wonderful major sponsors defray a large part of these ever-increasing costs, we are also calling on support from our local community to consider becoming a Friend of the Festival at a cost of $100. This money will also be used to help cover the cost of other festival activities such as our ever-popular Music in the Gardens.
Increased promotion means more visitors and so increases the benefits for all the community, not only in a better-equipped hospital but also in the fact that the Leura Gardens Festival helps generate more than 3 million dollars each year for our local economy.
Full recognition of Friends' support will be given in the festival booklet as well as here on the website.
