The Touched by Olivia Foundation has teamed up with with Wollongong City Council in order to bring the first Inclusive Playground to the Illawarra.

This playground, to be built at Corrimal Memorial Park, will be a place for ALL of our children, regardless of ability, to play alongside one another safely. Our children will swing, spin, slide, laugh, breathe the fresh air and soak up the sunshine in a playground that will look to most, like any other playground. There will however, be some subtle differences that our children with special needs, their parents and carers, will enjoy immediately.

We need your help to bring this playground to life! Wollongong City Council has generously committed $125,000 to help fund this exciting project. We need to raise at least an additional $125,000.

On the evening of Saturday, 16 March 2013, we will come together in back tie at the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach Grand Ballroom, for an exciting evening hosted by the wonderful Jay Laga’aia.

Ticket price includes a three course meal and beverage package, and a host of wonderful local acts, one of which has, and will continue to enjoy international success. There will be lucky door prizes, and a silent auction will run throughout the night.

Pull family and friends together to make a table of 10, and enjoy a 10% discount, or contact illawarra@touchedbyolivia.com.au to enquire about our corporate table packages, or sponsorship packages.

We can’t wait to see you there! Email Jade at illawarra@touchedbyolivia.com.au to purchase tickets, and help us to give our children with special needs, their parents and carers, a safe and inclusive place to play.
