Councillor Darren Everard of the Fraser Coast Regional Council says organizers predict the Motorhome & Caravan rally will inject more than $3m into the local economy.

GATAKERS FLOOD APPEAL @ THE FRASER COAST TO BE A GALA AFFAIR ON SATURDAY THE 23RD FEB 2013

February 12th, 2013

THE Gatakers Artspace Courtyard will come alive to the sounds of didgeridoos, saxophones, harps and classical, Spanish and acoustic guitars as some the region’s best performers ply their trade for a good cause on Saturday, February 23.

Musicians from across the Fraser Coast will unite to raise money for flood-affected residents at the next Gatakers by Night on from 5-9pm.

They include:

  • Al Davies (classical/spanish guitar)
  • Crystal Newmann (guitar and vocals)
  • Dan Boulton (acoustic guitar)
  • Lynda and Harry (harp and didgeridoo)
  • Jon Vea Vea (guitar and vocals)
  • Paul Marshall (saxophone)
  • Sam Hutchinson (guitar and vocals)

Councillor for community, cultural and family services George Seymour said all money raised from the gold coin entry will go those affected by the recent wild weather.

“Some people are doing it tough following the floods and storms and the money raised will go those who need it most,” he said.

“Lillianas on the Bay will also be operating a mobile coffee station and will donate $1 from every cup sold to the flood appeal.

“Hervey Bay calligraphy artist Haiyi Wu will be writing traditional Chinese messages of hope and inspiration for a gold coin donation. All the proceeds will be donated so it’s great to see so many people lending a hand.”

As part of the Haiyi’s calligraphy exhibition on show at Gatakers, Chinese Lion Dancers will also make the trip from Bundaberg to perform as part of ongoing Chinese new year celebrations.

Local poet Shelley Hansen has written a poem, inspired the resilience shown by flood-affected residents of Maryborough and will recite it on the night.

Local Butchulla people will open the event with a traditional dance and welcome to country.

Cr Seymour urged all residents to show their support.

“Gatakers by Night has become extremely popular and all the traditional favourites will be there including food and wine stalls, live art demonstrations and much more,” he said.

“It’s been a tough time for a lot of people but the support from the Fraser Coast community has been nothing short of overwhelming.

“Every little bit helps and I’m looking forward to seeing a great crowd.”

Fraser Coast Regional Council hosts Gatakers by Night on the last full weekend of every month.

This month the event will cap off Australia Day II celebrations across the Fraser Coast.

“Because some events were washed out as ex-tropical cyclone Oswald drenched the coast, we’re rescheduling Australia Day,” Mayor Gerard O’Connell said.

“The fun and games will start with a free community breakfast on the Town Hall Green from 7am. It will be followed by the presentation of the inaugural Fraser Coast Australia Day Awards at 9.30am and a Citizenship Ceremony at 11am.

“I hope everyone can come out to celebrate, especially to recognise the achievements of the Australia Day Award recipients”

At the breakfast, the Rotary Club of Maryborough Sunrise will provide 500 free breakfasts as well as a range of games including egg-and-spoon races, sack races, thong throwing and celebrity dummy spit.

Australia Day II events are also being planned by Hervey Bay Meals on Wheels for Scarness Park at Hervey Bay, community celebrations will be staged by the Burrum Heads Progress Association and the Glenwood Progress Association.
