Community Event of the Year Award awarded to Flinders Motoring Heritage.
Flinders District Lions Club has been awarded the Australia Day 2022, Mornington Peninsula Community Event of the Year, for the Flinders Motoring Heritage event conducted on Easter Sunday in 2021!
The award was presented to the Chair of the event and local resident Sven Burchartz with Mark and Monica Holland and Mary Iles from Flinders Lions in attendance.
Flinders District Lions wish to thank the event sponsors: Kallus Kenny Intelex, Bendigo Bank in Balnarring, RT Edgar Mornington Peninsula, the Flinders Hotel, Blue Print Printers and Porsche Centre Brighton, amongst others, who ensure contributions to Peninsula Health of more than $100,000 over 5 years are achievable. We look forward to welcoming them again at the 2022 event at Easter.
Flinders District Lions Club manage the fundraising event to encourage visitors to Flinders and to raise funds for Peninsula Health for specific projects. The funds raised in 2021 helped purchase foetal heart monitors for the Special Care Nursery at the Rosebud hospital.
The event hosts a display of unique veteran, vintage, classic and modern motor cars, all displayed throughout the pretty Flinders Village. In organising the event, the club takes care of car exhibitors, sponsorships, parking and administration with its team of Club members and many community volunteers. Community groups and local businesses are also encouraged to become involved. This award is for everyone !
