Thanks to enormous community support, Sylvanvale's Pre WWII Vintage Car & Bike Show at Cronulla on Sunday 15 April 2018 was a great success.
In spite of it being a challenging time for the people of the Sutherland Shire - particularly those living in areas such as Menai, Alfords Point, Sandy Point and Barden Ridge due the Sutherland Shires bushfires - the community really got behind the event and came in their thousands.
The show was bigger and better than ever, with its largest-ever array of spectacular vintage vehicles and even more kids' activities - including an animal farm, jumping castle and model railway.
Due to the significant turnout, estimated to be around 15,000 people, the event achieved a strong fundraising result. This means that Sylvanvale is now well on its way to creating a state of the art sensory and technology hub for children with disability at Sylvanvale's Kids Club.
Sylvanvale's Kids Club is vital to the Sutherland Shire community. The kids club ensures that school aged children with disability build new skills, socialise and are entertained after school, during school holidays and on the weekend.
Sylvanvale CEO Leanne Fretten said, "It was amazing to see the way the community came out and supported Sylvanvale's Kids Club, especially given the local bush fires."
"Our enormous thanks to everyone who sponsored, attended, showcased, exhibited, volunteered and participated at the Pre WWII Vintage Car and Bike Show. A huge thank you also to event custodian and founder Ken Warburton, Rotary Club of Cronulla and Sutherland Shire Council. Thanks to all their support the event was a resounding success."
This event would not be possible without our incredible sponsors:
