We’re proud to share the incredible experience that our dedicated volunteers had at the Ferragosto Street Festival on Sunday the 20th August. As part of our ongoing commitment to giving back to the community, our team enthusiastically joined forces to raise funds for a cause close to our hearts – supporting local women’s shelter, Sanctuary Housing. Not only did we have a blast at this vibrant event, but we also made a meaningful impact on the lives of those in need.

For those who haven’t had the pleasure of attending the Ferragosto Street Festival, let us paint a picture for you. The festival is a true celebration of Italian culture, featuring an array of mouthwatering food stalls, lively entertainment, and an electric atmosphere that brings the community together. It’s a day to savour delicious cuisine, dance to traditional music, and immerse ourselves in the rich tapestry of our local culture in Five Dock.

Our Canada Bay Club volunteers truly embody the spirit of community service. With hearts full of compassion, we set up a booth at the festival to raise funds for local women’s shelter, Sanctuary Housing. Our goal was to make a tangible difference in the lives of women who are in need of a safe and supportive environment. By collaborating with festival-goers and sharing our passion for this cause, we were able to raise both funds and awareness that will undoubtedly impact the lives of many women and children escaping domestic violence.

Speaking with visitors at the festival, our volunteers were deeply moved by the level of empathy and support our community exhibited. People from all walks of life contributed donations to the cause, demonstrating the power of unity and kindness. Whether it was a heartfelt conversation, a generous donation, or simply a warm smile, every interaction reinforced our commitment to making a positive impact in our community.

Our participation in the Ferragosto Street Festival was not just about raising funds – it was a testament to our unwavering dedication to the well-being of our community. We firmly believe that by working together, we can create a brighter future for those in need. This event has motivated us to continue seeking opportunities to make a difference and foster a supportive environment for everyone in our community. We look forward to increasing our volunteer involvement and fund raising efforts at upcoming community events and festivals.
