“Hearts on the Harbour”: Pyrmont Doing Its Bit for QLD Flood Relief

pyrmont sydney 280x210 Hearts on the Harbour: Pyrmont Doing Its Bit for QLD Flood ReliefLike all great things, they start with a great idea and develop from there.

Hearts on the Harbour is a charity event born from one individual thinking how can I help.

Over the past weeks we have all seen the grim and catastrophic images of flood torn Queensland  and these tragic events lead business owner of the White Idea wedding and events, Kim Alfeldi to think “how can I do something”. With a family of her own, Kim’s first thought was what she does best, plan an event.

Within hours a Hearts on the Harbour was a reality and quickly touched a chord with many local business owners to get involved.

Impluse Travel’s Sally Williams was one of the first to put their hand up and provide the grand prize of a trip for 2, including flights to Sheraton Grand Mauritius, a five star luxury resort in a pristine beachfront location, the winner bidder will certainly experience luxury at its finest with a approximate value of $10,000. Now with a total prize pool off over $25,000 even Ken Done donating a limited edition framed print.

Kim’s family understood the importance of this event and cause with husband and managing director Robert Alfeldi of FELDI Property Agents, located in Pyrmont assisting as major sponsor with another overseas trip to the ever popular Bali, with 6 nights in your own private luxury villa.

Vital to the event was the venue and Grant Andronicus from Ripples Sydney Wharf knew he had to be involved. Guests to the event will enjoy a stunning harbourfront location with views of the harbour and surrounds whilst enjoying food and beverage from the award winning Ripples team.

Locals and residents alike from Pyrmont and surrounds have answered Kim’s call and the 120+ guest cocktail party with tickets quickly selling and over 90 tickets sold to date.

Guests will be treated to one of the state’s leading broadcasters, Chris Smith from 2GB who has volunteered his time to MC the event. Another local Pyrmont business getting behind the event.

There is no doubt that the goal of raising $$$ will be achieved when you consider some of the other prizes up for auction.

In amongst her successful wedding planning business and family Kim has found time to contribute, “I saw the shocking scenes on the television and knew while I could not get there personally to help there was something she could do, right here”.

“I started making a few calls and sending a few emails and the response was instant to people and friends wanting to help and get involved in some way” Kim says.

Hearts on the Harbour, Wednesday Night 9th February 6pm to 10:30pm with all proceeds going to the QLD Premiers Flood Relief fund. Tickets $120.00. Contact phone 02 9552 1622  or email Vicky Kelly , for information on the event or to buy tickets.
