Salsa Sorensen in­vites char­i­ties to step up for relief money

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

FOR the past two years the Salsa Sorensen As­so­ci­a­tion has pro­vided as­sis­tance to nine dif­fer­ent groups/char­i­ties in the Dou­glas Shire close to the value of $30,000.

The funds raised to as­sist these groups have stemmed from the An­nual Brian Sorensen Cup, held in Au­gust each year.

Co-founder and prin­ci­ple of the Salsa Sorensen As­so­ci­a­tion Inc, Jenni Sorensen, is proud to an­nounce that in its third year of fundrais­ing, ap­pli­ca­tions are now open for sub­mis­sion.

“We are en­cour­ag­ing lo­cal groups and/or char­i­ties to sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion to our board for a spe­cific item or pur­chase re­quired, to the value of $5,000”, says Mrs Sorensen.

“We will be tak­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from now un­til June 30, with the re­cip­i­ents an­nounced on the day of The An­nual Brian Sorensen Cup, which is on Au­gust 21.

“While we en­cour­age all groups to ap­ply, a de­tailed sub­mis­sion out­lin­ing the pur­pose and de­sired value is re­quired.

“We also en­cour­age all groups to read the in­for­ma­tion pack to en­sure their el­i­gi­bil­ity for fund­ing,” Mrs Sorensen added.
