Sponsorship Opportunities

Ours is an environmentally-responsible company, with focus on sustainable living, creating wellbeing and supporting those in need.  This positive philosophy translates to action through the promotion in our event of Tweed Mental Health Services and the One Wave Foundation, with its Fluro/Floral Friday campaign, in support of the fight against depression in adults.

Your support would provide us with significant resources to devote to holding the event that brings joy to participants and spectators, and drives our ability to assist important causes through our continuing efforts outside of funding and running the contests themselves.

The key benefits to the community include:-

* an annual event in Kingscliff, drawing national and international attention and attendances;

* targeted growth of brands through our positive, active, integrated, regular promotion;

* gainful employment and experience for event staff with a reliable, seasoned promoter;

* better communication with the community about opportunities from which they can benefit; and

* a forum for calls-to-action for support for causes needing community attention and support.

Our main objective of the opportunity is to provide your business with an innovative outlet by which we can source increased need for your services, by informative exposure of them to our spectators and readership as part of our overall strategy for boosting interest in your business.
