Donate prizes for our fund-raising raffle or the winners of the tug-of-war competition;
In-kind support (e.g. donate food/drinks, printing services, equipment, manpower etc.);
Take up a Silver, Bronze Sponsorship or Event Supporter's Package for a cash donation.
The Rotary Club of Broome would like to thank all the sponsors and supporters of the 15th annual Dragon Boat Regatta held at Town Beach on 3rd September.
The Rotary Club Dragon Boat regatta has become one of Broome’s much anticipated events for the participating teams and the families and spectators who flock to Town Beach to watch the spectacle.
The Rotary Club of Broome and other helpers put in many hours of hard work over the last year to bring this regatta to the people of Broome and its many visitors.
But it is through the generosity of sponsors and supporters that make this event so worthwhile. The Fire & safety Services Company Dragon Boat Regatta raises funds for a variety of local and international Rotary projects such as; Rotary Youth Exchange and other youth programs, Broome’s Feed the Little Children, Pride of Workmanship Awards, Magabala Books and similar projects to help improve the lives of the many people in Broome. This year we are also helping with a Rotary project to fund an “Ear Bus” to improve ear health throughout the Kimberley.
Other projects include the Rotary International Foundation, the Worldwide Eradication of Polio and involvement in a scheme to provide clean water systems for villages in East Timor.
The participation and support of Broome community groups, businesses, sponsors and supporters is essential to the continued success of the Dragon Boat Regatta. Broome Rotary extends its thanks and appreciation to all who have helped and continue to support this major event on Broome’s sporting calendar.
