In the wake of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie and the resulting devastation across the Northern Rivers region of NSW, Splendour in the Grass announced the Northern Rivers Flood Fundraiser on Friday 28 April.
The initiative saw 50 specially created Flood Relief Gold Passes auctioned off across four days, with net proceeds raised to be donated to the communities that lost so much.
The results are in, and Splendour in the Grass is thrilled to announce that $69,067.25 raised will be distributed across the Tweed Mayor Appeal Fund, Lismore City Council Flood Appeal and the Mullumbimby & District Neighbourhood Centre Inc. in the Byron Shire.
From Tuesday 2 May to Friday 5 May, punters from around Australia and as far away as Mauritius jumped online to battle it out in the bidding war for this great cause.
Our successful auction bidders have earned themselves some serious karma points, plus they’ll be doing Splendour in style, with access to our VIP Gold Bar, Amphitheatre side of stage viewing area and the Golden View bar, overlooking the main stage action.
‘Me and two of my mates were all bidding on tickets at the same time, then all 3 of us got the highest bids! Two of us are flying over from WA,’ said Matthew Humphries, Flood Relief Gold Pass Successful Bidder.
‘We’re all pretty excited! I recently drove through the flood waters when I went to visit my family in Rockhampton in April, so I’ve seen what floods can do. I’m happy to be able to support the Splendour Northern Rivers Flood Relief, plus I get to go to Splendour too. It’s a win win!’
