Brian at Oktoberfest Brisbane

7 November 2016

Danke Oktoberfest Brisbane!

Youngcare was so excited to once again be the beneficiary of Oktoberfest Brisbane in 2016!

We had a blast with our awesome team of 77 vollies, donning drindls and lederhosen to raise vital funds and awareness to ensure all young Aussies are given the opportunity to live their young lives with choice, independence and dignity.

A BIG thank you to Jimmy Rod’s Barbershop and Triple M for the donated haircuts and to all of the festival-goers who played Go For Goal, visited the German bookstore and got their hair braided in exchange for gold coin donations.

Together we have raised an incredible $186,922 from 2008 to 2015, and this year was another success! DANKE for your support Oktoberfest Brisbane!
