MATES4MATES ANNOUNCED AS THIS YEARS CHARITY PARTNER OF THE GYMPIE MUSIC MUSTER
One of the most famous names in Australia's music festival landscape is celebrating its 35th anniversary and has today announced its charity partner for 2016.
The Gympie Music Muster is proud to announce that Mates4Mates has been chosen as the official beneficiary for its valuable rehabilitation work for current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members who are wounded, injured or ill. They also support the families of these Mates. This is a perfect partnership as mates, music and making a difference is what the Muster is all about.
CEO of Mates4Mates Simon Sauer also expresses his gratitude to be partnered with such a big-hearted fundraising initiative saying: "Mates4Mates is pursuing initiatives to support hard-to-reach regional and rural communities and individuals with our rehabilitation programs. Partnering with the Muster will go a long way in allowing us to reach more struggling individuals in need. Funds raised for Mates4Mates go towards our programs which support current ex-servicemen and women who are physically or psychologically injured as a result of their service."
As Australia's largest charity festival the Gympie Music Muster has raised in excess of $15 Million for charities Australia wide since its inception in 1982. The Muster also gives a multi-million dollar boost to Queensland's tourism sector every year, providing an economic boom for the region.
Gympie Muster Executive Director David Gibson said the Muster was honoured to be connected with such a worthwhile cause. "The ethos of Mates4Mates aligns perfectly with that of the Gympie Muster, we are both all about looking after our mates and making a difference. Mates4Mates does a wonderful job and like all Australians, our heart goes out to those current and ex-serving ADF personnel and their families who are facing some incredibly tough situations. Hopefully our partnership can help make a small part of that journey a little better".
Mates4Mates supports individuals and families with a variety of programs aimed at rebuilding the lives of ADF ex-servicemen with physical and psychological injuries as a result of their service. These programs, which operate from their support centres across Australia include: physical rehabilitation and wellbeing, psychological services, employment and education services, rehabilitation adventure challenges and family recovery support.
Official Ambassador of the 2016 Gympie Music Muster and one of the brightest stars of country music, Beccy Cole, is extremely proud to be an advocate for Mates4Mates and its association with The Muster. During December 2005 to January 2006 Beccy performed for Australian Defence Force personnel in Iraq. Her single, Poster Girl (Wrong Side of the World), expresses her support for the troops. It won the 2007 Song of the Year at CMAA awards, and its music video was listed at # 1 on the CMC charts. Beccy's current single Broken Soldiers truly reflects her ongoing support.
"I have had the honour of entertaining Aussie Troops a number of times over the last decade, both in Australia and overseas. I have met some of the most inspiring Australians, men and women giving their absolute all for their country, I've made some wonderful friends. If you want a true example of mateship, look no further than those who have served in the Australian Defence Force, then and now. These are the Aussies who have our backs and Mates4Mates helps to make sure they know we have theirs in return. I am very proud to be the ambassador for The Gympie Music Muster for 2016, especially in light of this charity partner announcement, it makes my role even more special", Beccy said.
The partnership will give Muster patrons the opportunity to donate online when purchasing a ticket and there will be fundraising promotions during the Muster weekend. Proceeds from the official Gympie Music Muster program will also go directly to the charity.
