GC WORD ON THE STREET #167

Anyone else feel like they’re living in a virtual reality? With months of being limited to staying home with minimal social interaction, all we’ve been doing is increasing our screen time! This goes for many events too as they have adapted to virtual screenings due to COVID-19. For all you animal lovers, music enthusiasts and market-goers, there are a few GC happenings that have adapted to the changes, giving you something to look forward to this week!

VIRTUAL BENEFIT UNDER THE STARS | CURRUMBIN WILDLIFE HOSPITAL FOUNDATION

This is a night under the stars like no other! Instead of canceling the annual gala event in light of COVID-19, the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation invites you to a virtual gala this year! The special evening will take you on a virtual journey of the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital featuring entertainment, music, performances, interviews and wildlife stories joined by celebrity guests and hosts. Tune in from the comfort of your home Saturday May 9th at 6pm! The hospital heavily relies on community support to help keep their doors open.

MARKETS IN THE MEADOW | AQUIS PARK, BUNDALL

Kick start your Sundays with a little exercise, coffee, fresh foods, fresh air and sunshine! Every Sunday, Markets In The Meadow will host a farmer’s market presenting local QLD and Northern Rivers farm growers. You can expect fresh fruit and vegetables, cryovac meats, specialist bakeries, international takeaway food, and the list goes on! Instead of another day being cooped up in the house, safely enjoy the glorious coastal open-air shopping in the sun!

BANDWIDTH | VIRTUAL BLUES ON BROADBEACH EVENT

The party has arrived for all self-isolating music fans! On Friday, May 15th at 7pm Blues on Broadbeach will premiere a free, 90-min Facebook event capturing live music performances from some of your favourite Blues on Broadbeach 2020 artists.
