What a great cause to be a part of: Mates4Mates!
An epic paddle-powered voyage up the east coast ended in cheers and beers on Saturday 9 November, as a team of kayaking wounded war veterans finished a three-week journey from Sydney.
To cater to all ages, the Riverside Plaza, off Eagle Street, was activated with free kids activities including face painters, arts & crafts, a jumping castle and a roving magician while the Brave Mates, their supporters and VIP’s and Sponsors enjoyed a luxurious cocktail party at Jellyfish Restaurant.
The Mates4Mates racing yacht, Spirit of Mateship, also made an appearance at the dock and catered for a private river cruise with canapés and champagne for selected VIP’s and sponsors in the late hours of the afternoon.
