Event:
A flotilla of little adorned boats gather for a good cause
Little Heroes Foundation brings you Flotilla for Kids; a colourful event to support seriously ill children and their families. Come along to witness a spectacular variety of decorated boats that will be making their way from the Port River, Outer Harbor into the centre of Port Adelaide. Flotilla for Kids will be providing entertainment and activities on shore for all the spectators to enjoy.

A delightful boat competition will parade the waters of the Port River, with participants entering their vessels into one of three categories; Best Themed, Most Colouful and Outstanding Fundraising. Bring the kids along, they'll be awed by the embellished boats on show. A judging panel consisting of representatives from Little Heroes Foundation will be stationed at Inner Harbour to determine which boat is most worthy of first place.

Through hosting Flotilla for Kids, Little Heroes Foundation aim to raise $4 million for a world class Robotic Rehabilitation and Research Centre at Adelaide's Women's and Children's Hospital to assist seriously ill children. They're not far off, with approximately $1,110,185 already donated. This is astonishing and impressive to say the least, and $4 million is incredibly achievable through the diverse events that have been organised by Little Heroes Foundation throughout the years.

If you can't make it on the day but would like to help, you can host a fundraiser to raise money as a participant for Flotilla for Kids. Some of these include dinners and lunches, quiz nights, golf days, auctions and raffles, workplace casual days or dress ups, wine tasting events, or a simple donation from family and friends. You can also donate money online, and donations over $2 are tax deductible.
