On November 1st Floatfest celebrated its official launch for 2018!

At the start of November we gathered with our partners and sponsors to officially launch the 2018 event. Some of you may be wondering what this means and quite simply it is a way to say we have wrapped up our reporting for this year's event and are now focussing on our planning for the Kookaburra Homes Floatfest 2018!

The launch allowed us to continue to build on our relationships, strengthen our partnerships for the coming event and discuss issues which we may have needed to look at together. For example the Floatfest team have been seeking funding to build a more robust program for the 2018 event. A part of this includes a specific day of activities within our program for our Can:Do 4Kids participants. To give these children the chance to take part in new experiences and build on their motor skills.

The Floatfest Team had been applying for grants in order to run this in 2018 and updated those in attendance of our progress. While discussing this Kookaburra Homes decided to chip in $1,000 towards this exact activity. For this both the Floatfest Team and Can:Do 4Kids would like to say a big THANK YOU!
The launch was celebrated at the Kookaburra Homes Argentine Display Home, a newly minted brick building built by Kookaburra Homes – the award winning Builders based in the Rural City of Murray Bridge. 

This house is AMAZING! If you haven't been to check it out yet you need to make it happen. For more info on the huge range of houses Kookaburra Homes build visit their website
