Dear Fiona Carlotto,
Over 3,000 children attended Queensland’s largest Christmas Party for children that struggle with serious illnesses, special needs, disabilities or suffer from unique challenges in their life.
They were selected by local schools and government, community and charitable organisations around SE QLD.
John Lazarou of the Coffee Club and Abby Coleman from Hit105 hosted the annual Variety Special Children’s Christmas Party and kept the crowd pumped through the 3 hour stage show featuring local and national entertainers.
The children were treated to rides and entertainment, loads of yummy treats and new and exciting experiences. The highlight of the day for the children was meeting Santa and being treated to Santa’s Toy room, where they each received 2-3 fantastic presents to take home.
Since the day we have received many messages from mums and dads that were overwhelmed by the generosity of the community that made this day possible for their children. Footage of the day can be seen on our Facebook page.
This day is fully funded by local businesses and organisations. We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our AMAZING sponsors, volunteers and the team at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre – we couldn’t have done this without your support.
Congratulations to everyone that partnered with us this year to give these brave families a Christmas to remember. We’re excited about what we can put together for 2018 and look forward to partnering with you once again!
