Whitsunday Regional Council today approved sponsorship of $250 to the Whitsunday Raiders Rugby Union Club Inc. to support their hosting of the North Queensland Rugby Championships from 15 to 17 May 2015.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said the sponsorship will assist the Whitsunday Raiders Rugby Union Club in offsetting expenses associated with running the carnival including remuneration for match officials, food and beverage and first aid provision.
“Council is pleased to provide support to a local organisation that is prepared to host an event at a regional level which will see players, match officials and spectators visit the Whitsundays from Cairns, Townsville, Mt Isa and the Mackay regions,” Mayor Whitney said.
“I commend the Whitsunday Raiders for hosting this fantastic event; it’s exciting for all involved in local rugby in addition to showcasing our region and providing economic benefit to local businesses.”
