Real Journeys Thank You Cruise

When: Friday 23 June
Where: TSS Earnslaw
Time: 5pm - 7.15pm (fireworks at 7pm)
Cost: nominated winners only (and a guest)
Includes: beverage, canapes and cruise of Frankton Arm.  All volunteers will go into a draw for the ‘Toot Your Horn’ prize and honour of signalling the start of the fireworks for the night.

The Friday night lights of the Real Journeys Friday Night Party & Fireworks will be even more spectacular for an extra special group of Festival goers as Real Journeys and the TSS Earnslaw will host a Thank You Cruise that will culminate with sitting pole position on the lakefront to watch the fireworks.

There were 129 nominees for the Real Journey’s Thank You Cruise. Nominations ran from 5 May – 1 June 2017. 

Although we had initially sought 50 nominees, the selection committee (made up of reps from Real Journey’s and QWF) were overwhelmed by the incredible stories of volunteering and expanded the number to 80 (+10 for CAB).  While this means that nominees can bring one guest instead of three, it means that we could recognise more people doing amazing work in our Otago and Southland communities.

Nominees came from Queenstown, Arrowtown, Glenorchy, Frankton, Wanaka, Albert Town, Lake Hawea, Hawea Flat, Cromwell, Clyde, Balclutha, Dunedin, Invercargill, and Bluff.

Nominees have now been emailed their invite.
