We think our members are magical!

Community Industry Group want to highlight and celebrate the resilience and ingenuity of our members and reward outstanding contributions with the ‘We Do Magic’ Community Service Awards.

We encourage members to nominate for the awards and attend the Gala Dinner Event on Friday 4 June 2021. Nominations close Midnight Sunday 2 May 2021!

Sponsorship Opportunities

We are looking for organisations and businesses who want to add their own thanks and recognition to our community service providers who are always there when things get tough!

The last 18 months have been extremely difficult for not for profit community service providers in the Illawarra and Southern NSW. While many sectors have been shutting down, need and demand for community services have been ramping up. Our members have continued to offer services in the face of drought, fire, flood and a pandemic.

Your support will help us put on a magical night of sparkling inspiration and celebration. Community Industry Group want to highlight and celebrate the resilience and ingenuity of our not for profit members and to reward outstanding contributions. We want to recognise that in our sector We Do Magic and we want everyone else to know too.

We are seeking a range of sponsors from gold to in-kind support. You could also sponsor a finalist and their guest to attend the awards night. We would really appreciate your help to make this a special night for community service workers.
