Have you ever wondered who actually sponsors the Port Pirie Christmas Pageant? The Port Pirie community is very lucky that there are some generous sponsors to bring this great event to the people.
The Port Pirie Christmas Pageant Inc. would like to thank our major sponsors for their ongoing and dedicated support:
DONATION BY THE PORT PIRIE COMBINED SERVICE CLUBS
We are grateful for the support of the Port Pirie Combined Service Clubs who have brought you the pageant for many years. In a meeting to hand over the running of the pageant earlier in the year, the clubs advised the new committee that they would like to donate any funds they have left over in their pageant kitty to the new pageant committee. This was a very generous amount of over $3000 and is certainly helping us to be able to bring the children and families of Port Pirie and surrounding districts a great pageant this year. So a massive BIG Thank you to Y’smen Club, Soroptomist, Lions, Rotary and Apex who make up the Port Pirie Combined Service Clubs.
OUR MAJOR SPONSOR – THE PORT PIRIE REGIONAL COUNCIL
The Port Pirie Regional Council are the Port Pirie Christmas Pageant’s Major Sponsor who donate $10,000 each year + $5,000 value in kind of roadwork/internal support. We are eternally grateful to Council and would like to particularly thank Council’s Manager of Governance and Community Peter Arnold, Special Events Coordinator Rhys Millington and Council’s Manager of Operations Robert Stead for their ongoing support.
