The popular Tathra Wharf to Waves is on again in 2019, to be held on the weekend of January 19-20.
The weekend is run by volunteers to raise funds for the community, while providing a fun weekend for locals and visitors alike. A much-needed community event in what has been an unsettling time in the area.
Organisers thank sponsors from 2018 and particularly major sponsor Bega Cheese and the winners of the Splash for Cash naming rights draw, Rettke Builders.
The generosity of all sponsors helped the event raise $24,167, which benefited the following local community organisations:
Tathra Preschool - $8000
Tathra Surf Life Saving Club - $8000
Tathra Primary School - $5000
Rural Fire Service (Tathra) - $2000
Tathra Playgroup - $500
Tarraganda Shed - $300
The Tathra Wharf to Waves, one of the region’s premier events, is again offering local businesses and organisations the chance to be recognised as one of the major supporters for a fraction of the cost.
By purchasing a tax deductible $100 ticket, you will be entered into the draw to win the naming rights to the main event of the weekend, the 1200m Splash for Cash ocean swim.
If you are the lucky winner of the draw, your business will receive an estimated $10,000 worth of promotion, including your logo printed on programs, entry forms and banners; your name and logo included in all media advertising; you will present a major prize to the race winners; acknowledgement over the public-address system throughout the weekend; website www.tathrawharf2waves.com will feature you and link to your website; hospitality on the day; and two complimentary Tathra Wharf to Waves T-shirts.
