The Mandurah Canals Christmas Lights phenomenon raises money for the Rotary Club of Mandurah who distribute the donations to local charities. All Mandurah Cruises vessels stop at the floating wishing well during cruises, so passengers can make a loose change donation and wish. Last year over $28,000 was raised! Mandurah Cruises also provide a large monetary donation to the wishing well and host an awards night and thank you party for the canal residents who put on the magnificent displays.
