Mooloolaba’s bright lights mean bright futures this festive season

A Christmas highlight for Coast locals will light up the Mooloolaba canals this Saturday raising funds to create opportunities for people with disabilities.
    
A large contingent of boat owners, their family and friends will deck out their vessels and canal homes with fairy lights, tinsel, Christmas songs and everything festive for the annual Mooloolaba Yacht Club Christmas Boat Parade.

All funds raised from the parade entry fee and raffles will be given to the charity of choice, STEPS Charity and their Pathways Christmas Appeal, raising $50,000 for the fit out of their Pathways College.

The college will provide accommodation and support for 11 young people with a disability so they can enjoy living independently for the first time in their lives.

Mooloolaba Yacht Club’s Christmas Boat Parade event committee chair Gary Schulz is encouraging Coast visitors, locals and their families to join in the festivities for a good cause.

“Come down for a great night of lights and activities to celebrate the 13th annual Christmas Boat Parade!” Mr Schulz said.

“Help us to raise funds for STEPS Charity and create a brighter future for people with a disability. The money made will help fund the fit out of each unit that will be home for students and carers next year.”

For those who have officially entered the Parade there are some great prizes on offer for the top three in the Best Dressed Boat and Best Dressed House categories.
