The 2017 committee is calling upon the Toowoomba community to get into the Christmas spirit and look at volunteering for this year’s event.
Last year, the Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland returned a record $100,000 to the local community and saw the largest crowd ever as 90,000 people visited the lights.
Three local charities, the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation, Lifeline Darling Downs & South West, and Toowoomba Hospice, each received $32,000, with a further $4,000 going towards other community groups.
This result brought the total raised by the Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland since its inception 16 years ago to $857,000.
Project Chairman Marshall Cox said volunteers remain a key part of making the event possible each year.
“The Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland is a community event at heart, and without our wonderful volunteers the event would not be possible,” Cox said.
The event runs from 2 to 24 December.
Volunteers can register their interest here. All volunteers must be over 15 years of age.
