The support of the local community was fantastic.  Despite questionable weather, almost 2000 people converged onto Northbridge Oval for what was yet another spectacular Rotary Community Fireworks event in May. 
120 Rotarians, friends and supporters alike, did a fantastic job behind the scenes, putting it all together.  Stellar musical Band performances by students from Northbridge Public School, Cammeray Public School and Willoughby Girls High, really brought the evening alive.
Other entertainment included Kids rides, lots of food from the Rotary BBQ’s and other offerings from several of our local business Sponsors. 
Fifteen minutes of “snap, crackle and bang” then set the night alight!
Funds raised by the evening were just short of $30,000.   Much of this provided support to several local and international projects. 
Local beneficiaries included EarlyEd, who provide early education support for local children with disabilities; Taldumande Youth Services, supporting vulnerable and homeless children in our region; The Rural Fire Service, and other Rotary projects working toward the eradication of Polio throughout the world, and other projects aiding research into dementia.  These though, are only a small section of entities that Rotary would like to assist and support.
The Rotary Club of Northbridge greatly appreciate the support of our majors supporters for this event – being AMP Capital/Northbridge Plaza, Commonwealth Bank, Willoughby Council, Coates Hire, Ray White, Anytime Fitness Northbridge, The Northbridge Hotel, BeachLife Physiotherapy, All Occasions Pyrotechnics, Borusso’s, BackVintage Wines, Castlecrag Montessori School, and last but not least, the Rural Fire Service. 
The Northbridge Community fireworks are only one of many events organised by Northbridge Rotary that provides aid to local support entities, who, in turn, help individuals in need, in our community and throughout the world.
