Cruise For Cancer - May 2024

Sailing for a Cause: A Voyage of Hope and Healing

On Saturday, May 3rd, we embarked on a memorable journey aboard the Lady Brisbane for our inaugural fundraiser, the "Cruise for Cancer." With the sparkling Brisbane River as our backdrop, we set sail on a three-hour lunch cruise filled with delectable BBQ treats, refreshing cocktails, and the soothing melodies of chilled music.

Our mission? To raise vital funds for Cancer Council's Do It For Cancer program, a cause close to our hearts. And thanks to the incredible support from our community and the generous contributions from local businesses, our efforts exceeded all expectations.

Throughout the cruise, excitement filled the air as we hosted raffles and giveaways, offering an array of fantastic prizes generously donated by businesses including Bayside Lawn Maintenance, City Cave Wynnum, Super Butchers, Brisbane Cruises, River TO Bay, Hampers With Bite, Yoga Bayside, and Eat Street Northshore.

Every ticket sold contributed $20 directly to the cause, and combined with the proceeds from the raffles, our collective impact soared. Together, we proved that when a community comes together for a cause as worthy as fighting cancer, incredible things happen.

As we disembarked from our voyage, hearts full of gratitude and hope, we knew that our journey was just the beginning. With each dollar raised, we are one step closer to supporting those affected by cancer and funding vital research initiatives.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on this unforgettable cruise, and to all the businesses who generously supported our cause. Together, we are making a difference in the fight against cancer.
