Bruce Munro: Tropical Light Volunteers Sought to Help Territorians with Cancer

Two hundred Territorians have the opportunity to volunteer for Darwin’s world-class exhibition ‘Bruce Munro: Tropical Light’ and raise funds for Territory families dealing with cancer. 

The world-first ‘Bruce Munro: Tropical Light’ exhibition will feature eight illuminated sculptures across the Darwin CBD and Waterfront, transforming Darwin’s traditionally quieter period from November to April into a not-to-be-missed tropical wonderland and providing significant flow-on benefits for local business.

Volunteers are being sought as exhibition hosts, artwork minders and visitor engagement promoters, with all funds raised by volunteers to go to CanTeen.

Volunteers must commit four hours each week for 27 weeks throughout the exhibition, which runs from November 2019 to April 2020 and is expected to bring an extra 50 000 visitors to Darwin.

Territory businesses and individuals can sponsor a Tropical Light volunteer and every shift worked will earn a $100 donation for CanTeen, with the potential donation of $2,400 per volunteer and a total $480,000 across the program.

Funds raised will continue to support services for Territory and South Australian families living with cancer.

CanTeen Chief Executive Officer Peter Orchard said CanTeen was incredibly proud to be the charity partner for Tropical Light.

“By working together, we can showcase this fantastic event to the world while also helping young people in the Northern Territory and across Australia overcome the immense challenge of cancer,” he said.

Halikos Hospitality General Manager Patrick Murray said Halikos Hospitality was proud to extend support for the volunteers of the Tropical Light exhibition.

“The 200 volunteers that will work across the six months for the Bruce Munro exhibition should be acknowledged for their contribution, effort and hard work,” he said.
