State Member for Morayfield, Mark Ryan MP, has welcomed the announcement of the 2016 Queensland Week Sponsorship Program, encouraging community groups and organisations to participate in celebrating our state’s birthday next year.
“Each year, right across the state, Queenslanders mark our state’s birthday with events unique to their community,” Mr Ryan said.
“The Queensland Week Sponsorship Program encourages everyone to celebrate in a way that reflects their culture, heritage and aspirations.
“I am very excited to announce applications are now open for the 2016 Queensland Week Sponsorship Program.
“Sponsorship funding of up to $10 000 is available for events held to celebrate Queensland Week next year between June 4 and 12 June.
“The Queensland Week events sponsored under the program this year included food festivals, youth and multicultural celebrations, a unique opportunity to ride on the historic Gulflander Train and a tour of the Stonehouse Museum.
“It would be great to see an event in our local community benefit from this funding in 2016,” Mr Ryan said.
