EACH YEAR TULIP TIME SEEKS EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FROM CHARITIES WISHING

to be considered as the endorsed Tulip Time Charity Partner.
Partnering with the Tulip Time Festival provides the appointed Charity Partner with a well known
and loved platform and opportunity from which they can fund raise as well as leverage/promote the
Charity's reach and brand awareness via various events, activities, merchandising etc. however;
it shouldn't be solely viewed for the purpose of fundraising.


2018 charity partner 

Wingecarribee Adult Day Care Centre and Dementia Australia have been announced as the charity partners for the 2018 Tulip Time Festival. 
Well-known local celebrity, Noeline Brown has also been announced as the 2018 Tulip Time Ambassador.
Wingecarribee Adult Day Care Centres support the frail aged, disabled and socially isolated people in the community through the provision of programs and services for those affected by
dementia, their families and carers.

Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia. Simon Crowson, General Manager Fundraising, Dementia Australia, said "Dementia Australia is proud to be a charity partner and for the opportunity to raise awareness of the impact of Dementia in today's society".

Bob Constable, the Director and Chair of the Wingecarribee Adult Care Centres Extension Fundraising Committee, said "with the growing ageing population in the Southern Highlands there are not enough facilities to accommodate their needs, the 2018 Tulip Time Festival provides a great opportunity to raise the awareness of Dementia and the need for facilities to allow people to stay and be involved in the 

community for longer with a sense of comfort and support.
