When GemLife – Bribie Island General Manager Ben Livingstone was asked to support the Sandstone Point Community Carols which are to be held on Saturday 8th December, he had no hesitation in committing to a donation of $5,000 which means that, for the second year in a row, GemLife – Bribie Island will be a “Platinum Sponsor” of the event. GemLife – Bribie Island commenced construction of the luxury over 50’s resort at Bongaree in late 2017 and after the initial stage of ninety homes attracted a multitude of buyers, stage two has recently been released and sales are once again exceeding expectations.

GemLife has announced that a major part of the 2018 sponsorship will be for the inaugural “GemLife Fireworks” which will light up the sky at the end of the Carols Concert. The Sandstone Point Community Carols are now in their seventeenth year and are a joint presentation by the Sandstone Point Community Association and the Lions Club of Sandstone Point. The event is also supported by the Sandstone Point Community Church and is rapidly becoming one of the largest carols evenings in the area with all groups eager to ensure that it remains a free entry and non-alcohol event which can be enjoyed by the whole family.

A spokesperson for the Sandstone Point Community Carols committee has told me that without the generous support of GemLife – Bribie Island and all the other businesses and organisations, the event would not be able to continue and the committee is extremely grateful for their continued support. The 2018 Community Carols will be held at the Sandstone Point Oval on Bestmann Road East and the whole family is invited to come along.

Activities will commence at 4.30 pm and will include a merry-go-round, climbing wall animal petting farm and face painting. Local dance and music groups will also be there to entertain and of course, Santa will happily meet children at the Santa Photo Booth. The Carols Community Choir will open the Carols Concert at 6.30 and families will be able to sing along to all the carols.
