Heart of Australia Awards on Australia Day
 
Gold Coast Rotary in association with the National Australia Day Committee staged an event on Australia Day 2022 called “Heart of Australia” Awards. 26 nominees (check out our Facebook page for some of the nominees) were acknowledged for their individual efforts and contributions to our wider community, particularly recognising volunteers in community NFP organisations. Angie Bell MP presented the awards.
 
Over 90 guests and members enjoyed the Business Breakfast in The Glasshouse at The Island complex in Surfers Paradise, which was ‘Australian themed’ and included a very special ‘Acknowledgment of Country’ by Aunty Betty, Didgeridoo rendition by Craig Kemp and live music entertainment by Frazer Goodman Duo. 
 
This will be a very special way to celebrate Australia Day! All Rotarians and partners are encouraged to attend.
 
The event was streamed live so as to include a number of awardees unable to attend due to Covid restrictions.  A recording of the  event can be viewed here
