CLUB ROSE BAY MAKES FINALS OF COMMUNITY AWARDS
Club Rose Bay has been recognised for its meaningful contribution to the Eastern Suburbs community, being named as a finalist in the prestigious 2016 Clubs & Community Awards.
The Awards recognise the immense contribution clubs make to their local area and the state across a range of categories including Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Emergency Services, Health, Youth Leadership, Amateur Sport, and Disability, Welfare & Social Inclusion.
The Awards also recognise outstanding individuals and clubs working together to improve their community through the Heart of the Community and Clubs in Collaboration Awards.
ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said that this year’s Awards received a high calibre of entries, including several nominations from local organisations working alongside clubs.
“These Awards recognise and celebrate the many ways in which registered clubs get involved and support their local communities with purpose and pride,” he said.
“Across the state clubs are always the first to roll up their sleeves or lend a helping hand, and these Awards are all about recognising that community spirit."
Club Rose Bay is a finalist in the Emergency Services category for the refuge and assistance it provided Carlisle Street residents who were evacuated when a deadly gas leak occurred nearby.
Mr Ball said that people of the Eastern Suburbs should be proud of their local club and its nomination.
“I would like to commend Club Rose Bay for their eagerness to help those in need when hard times strike.”
The Awards are judged by an expert panel including Centre for Volunteering Chairperson Valerie Hoogstad, Australian philanthropist and actress Paula Duncan AM, former Minister for Gaming and Racing Kevin Greene and former ClubsNSW Deputy CEO Wayne Krelle.
Club Rose Bay will find out if they are winners at the official Awards Ceremony on Friday 6 May at the Royal Hall of Industries in Sydney’s Moore Park.
