Awards night 

On Saturday 26th of November Compass had held its 8th Annual Awards Night and this year’s theme was “Kings and Queens ”.
A special thank you must go to Heritage Bank Palmwoods for their ongoing support and their generous contribution to the night and huge thank you to The Sebel Pelican Waters Golf Resort & Spa for their continued support and accommodating everyone’s request. It was a fantastic night and it was a great pleasure to see everyone having a lot of fun.

Cricks makes an awesome donation!

“Thank you” can become a bit worn when you’re the recipient of a constant stream of heartfelt generosity… but in the end it’s all we can say… so once again thank you on behalf of all the young people and the whole team at Compass Institute.  We are very grateful for the support from Matt, Dan and all the wonderful people at Cricks Noosa and Nambour

Coast Life Homes Charity Race Night

Once again it has come to that time of year that we all love….

The sound of the thundering hooves on the turf…

The colour and excitement of night racing…

Why not grab a table to the 2016 “Coast Life Homes” Charity Race night, with all proceeds going to the Compass Institute Inc, providing real futures for young Queenslanders with a disability.

As you are aware, nights like this are made successful through the help of major sponsors, race sponsors and ticket sales to the event. Compass would like to thank “Coast Life Homes” for the major sponsorship and we are now calling on you to sponsor a race or buy a table to this fantastic night. Last year was our most successful year to date, and this year will be no different – music, entertainment, food, drinks and racing. This event is tipped to be one of our major fundraisers for the year for Compass, so we hope that you can see the benefits of being involved.

Sponsorship is a terrific way for you to gain visibility and generate goodwill and customers for your business.

  • Race sponsorship including naming rights to an individual race (All details of inclusions attached) $1,760
  • Table sponsorship for 10 people: $1,000
  • Individual tickets available: $110 per person

These events offer you the chance to create business opportunities while investing in the future of the Compass Institute. All profits generated from this event will be unveiled on the night.  We understand that not all businesses will be able to take up the opportunity to be involved in our event. Any pro bono support or donations towards the monster raffle, will be gratefully appreciated.  Should you have any queries, please contact me via email or on 0405 188 133, and please feel free to forward the below poster to your networks.
