At the end of April Splendour in the Grass announced they would be raising money for the victims of the recent floods in the Tweed and Byron Bay. They auctioned off Gold Passes across 4 days with all of the proceeds going to those who lost everything in the floods.
This is pretty amazing stuff, Splendour have just released the amount of $ they raised for the Tweed Mayor Appeal Fund, Lismore City Council Flood Appeal and the Mullumbimby & District Neighbourhood Centre Inc. in the Byron Shire.
Are you ready for this?
One of the punters is pretty stoked he's going to Splendour in style PLUS helping those who suffered in the floods.
“Me and two of my mates were all bidding on tickets at the same time, then all 3 of us got the highest bids! Two of us are flying over from WA. We’re all pretty excited! I recently drove through the flood waters when I went to visit my family in Rockhampton in April, so I’ve seen what floods can do. I'm happy to be able to support the Splendour Northern Rivers Flood Relief, plus I get to go to Splendour too. It’s a win win!” Matthew Humphries, Flood Relief Gold Pass Successful Bidder.
