Sponsors 2010


In 2010 the WANTZ Committee proudly supported the Cerebral Palsy League of Qld. For over 60 years the Cerebral Palsy League (CPL) has provided vital support and services to bring hope, joy and opportunity to the lives of Queenslanders with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities. Every 18 hours a child is born with cerebral palsy in Australia, making it the most common form of physical disability in childhood. It is widely recognised that early intervention and support can drastically maximise the life opportunities of a child with cerebral palsy. CPL were desperately in need of the following equipment:

A big thank you to all our wonderful Sponsors, Donors, members of the medical community, and individuals who donated so generously. We would also like to thank Snap Printing for their very generous printing support, Ms. Kristin Devitt who kindly donated her time to MC at the WANTZ Fundraising Dinner, Mr. David Pugh of Restaurant TWO for his help and support, Queensland Opera for donating their time to entertain us during the dinner, our auctioneer Mr. George Trovas, the donors of the Auction and Raffle Prizes and The Wine Emporium for their donation of wine for the table prizes. A big thank you, also, to Starshots Photography, Toowong Village & Tower and David Jones for their Gift Vouchers, and to all our dinner guests who contributed so generously.


The WANTZ Committee was able to raise over $240,000 to buy the equipment on the WANTZ CPL Wish List, none of which would have been possible without the generosity of all our sponsors and donors.


The culmination of the WANTZ Committee's fundraising every year was a spectacular dinner at Restaurant 'TWO', arguably Brisbane's best restaurant, on the night of Brisbane's Riverfire held on 4 September, 2010. Guests included members of Brisbane's medical, legal, banking, government and business communities.
