April 2018 – Coordinators Bulletin 2018 04 No.1

From Mabel Sansom (Chair DAA)

Dear Co-ordinatorsHello from the Board of Dragons Abreast Australia!

Time to mark your calendars!

Lot of happenings at DAA and we don’t want you to miss out!

DAA 20th anniversary celebrations – 20th October 2018 Sydney
We are thrilled to announce the Dragons Abreast Festival website has been launched with a link to the Festival Registration page which is now OPEN for team entries and fundraising.  

Click here and check out our new look and watch the incredible and inspiring video by Robyn Moore, our National Ambassador. 

As you know, the Festival is the major fundraising event for DAA and without funds raised we could not continue to support our groups around Australia.  

If you are considering participating in the event this year don’t miss out on our Early Bird Registration deal – save $400 provided your full team fee is paid by 1 July 2018.  

Look forward to seeing you at Darling Harbour to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Dragons Abreast Australia.  We hope to see many of you there and we will update you as plans are developed.
