Building upon the success of the monthly Nights on Ocean markets, the Maroochydore Revitalisation Association have a grand vision for the precinct and are hosting a fundraising event to gain support for their Economic Development Plan.
The event titled 'A Night at the Old Courthouse' will be held on Friday 17th October and will feature music, art and a local party atmosphere.
Maroochydore Revitalisation Association (MRA) President James Birrell said those attending will be asked to donate towards fundraising, however the event will also be a great opportunity to enjoy the food stalls, the Captain & the Duke pop up bar, and the old jail cells that will be transformed into a Cocktail Lounge for the evening.
"There are plenty of prizes available that have been donated by local businesses, and those who RSVP via our website will go into the draw to win two nights accommodation at any Oaks Hotels & Resorts in Australia," said Mr Birrell.
MRA is a not-for-profit organisation that is driven by a volunteer committee drawn from local businesses and the community.
To date they have facilitated vibrant events in the precinct such as the Ocean Street World Festival, and projects including street art installations.
"Entry to 'A Night at the Old Courthouse' is free and all proceeds will go directly towards MRA's Economic Development Plan," said Mr Birrell.
"We have also set up an online crowd funding platform to help collect donations before the event, accessible from our website."
"The Economic Development Plan will result in a strategic direction for the precinct so we can all grow and prosper together, end ensure a vibrant cultural business and community experience."
"It is as much about the economy as it is about creating a better lifestyle for everyone on the Coast."
