Sky Tower proceeds on Australia Day to be donated to bushfires
To acknowledge and support the devastating bushfire crisis sweeping Australia, on Sunday 26 January, all proceeds generated from Sky Tower admissions will go to the South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS) Foundation.
The CFS Foundation financially supports local volunteer firefighters and their families who have suffered death, injury, loss or damage of property whilst in the line of duty.
The Sky Tower will be also be lit up green and gold to stand in solidarity with the cities, communities, wildlife and firefighters that continue to be affected by the fires.
Group Chief Operating Officer, Michael Ahearne says it’s special that an icon like the Sky Tower enables kiwis to raise much needed funds for those risking their lives in the line of duty.
“Our thoughts go out to Australia during this tragic time, including the communities and cities in which we operate.
“Through Adelaide Casino, SkyCity is a member of the tourism community in South Australia and as such we are choosing to support the South Australian CFS who have done such a terrific job in the Adelaide Hills and on Kangaroo Island.
“We encourage locals and visitors alike to come along to the Sky Tower on Australia Day, knowing that proceeds will go toward those that need it most.”
This gesture is one of the initiatives that SkyCity Entertainment Group has undertaken to support Australia during the bushfires, with SkyCity Hamilton and Adelaide Casino also engaging in fundraising events.Back to Media Centre
