Winemakers Master Class Raises Over $187,000 for SunnyKids

The Travis Schultz Winemakers Master Class event backed by NAB Private Wealth for SunnyKids raised over $187,000 for SunnyKids.  Sunshine Coast businesses dug deep, coming together to raise vital funds for vulnerable children.

This year’s theme, ‘A Day at the Winery’, saw the Maroochy RSL transformed into a beautiful scene, setting the stage for a day of indulgence, fun and generosity.

Over 370 local businesspeople were treated to a four-course meal, accompanied with some of Australia’s finest wines.

SunnyKids CEO, Kathleen Hope, was overwhelmed by the generosity and ongoing support of the community.

“Each day we see firsthand the devastating impacts of domestic and family violence on women and children. We simply can’t afford to turn a blind eye to the crisis that is on our doorstep. This year, with the support of our incredible community, we’ve raised over $187,000. This kind of financial support will mean we can continue to deliver our vital support services to our most vulnerable children,” says Ms Hope.

“Each year this event raises vital funds for our most vulnerable children, right here on the Coast. It’s the generosity of our wonderful supporters that enables us to continue to provide critical support to children who desperately need our help. The generosity and caliber of the guests in the room contributed to an outstanding afternoon of fun, laughter, expertise and purpose.”

“We’re incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of our community, for those who attended and donated and to our sponsors – NAB Private Wealth, Travis Schultz & Partners, MiQ Private Wealth, Toomey Family Law, Secure Access IT, Grenfell Murray and Zaleta.”

NAB Private Wealth who are proud sponsors of this year’s event for the seventh consecutive year and NAB Private Wealth Client Director and SunnyKids Director John Burnie believes supporting SunnyKids is vital for our community.

“SunnyKids continues to provide essential support services to our most vulnerable children here on the Sunshine Coast. It’s extremely important to support those facing adversity, they can’t do it on their own, it really does take a village,” says Mr Burnie.

“Strong communities are built by individuals who care. When we extend our support to those facing hardship, we’re showing people we genuinely care about their well-being and want to support them.”

Travis Schultz, of Travis Schultz & Partners and event founder, continues to be overwhelmed by the level of support that the Winemakers Master Class attracts within the community each year.

“We are immensely grateful for the generosity and commitment of those in our local community to our cause. It’s truly inspiring connecting with local businesspeople at such a fun event all while raising money for SunnyKids,” says Mr Schultz.

This year’s event showcased some of Australia’s top winemakers as guests were treated to a four-course meal paired perfectly with a variety of wines. The winemakers featured at this year’s event were The Lane, Meerea Park, Hentley Farm and Yalumba.
