Real Estate Raine & Horne Mollymook Milton dig deep for the Blessing of the Fleet festival

Raine & Horne Mollymook Milton is doing its bit to ensure Ulladulla’s iconic Blessing of the Fleet Festival stays afloat.

The sales team is hoping to raise up to $10,000 for the festival over the next three months by donating $200 from every house listed and sold from January to March to the committee.

Raine & Horne principals Tony Hopper and Ben Pryde said the sales professionals were happy to put their hands up to ensure the festival could go ahead in 2018.

“It’s such a magnificent even for our town and something that many of our team has been involved in,” Tony said.

“My daughter was a princess a few years ago and her float won – it was a wonderful experience for her.”

Members of the Raine & Horne team have been Blessing of the Fleet committee members and many have taken part in the parade.

Ben said making a donation from each sale was a great way for Raine & Horne to continue to support the local community.

“We’re sponsoring two Blessing of the Fleet princesses and many of our kids will be involved in the parade.

“We would hate to see the event fold due to a lack of funds as it is such a drawcard for our town and also provides great entertainment for the locals.”

Tony said, with an office on the harbour overlooking Ulladulla’s fishing fleet, it was fitting for Raine & Horne to come to the party.

“The Blessing of the Fleet is an important tradition for our area and the parade and associated festivities make it a real community event that we can all be proud of.”

How the Ulladulla Community comes together for the Festival

How the Ulladulla Community comes together for the Festival

The Blessing of the Fleet is an annual event held every Easter Sunday.  It is a very special time of the year.  Not only is it the most holy Catholic time of the year, but it is also a time when families and friends get together to enjoy the Easter holidays here in Milton Ulladulla.  

Shoalhaven City CouncilA big part of this enjoyment in the Shoalhaven area is the Blessing of the Fleet Festival with its parade, entertainment, stalls, food, exhibitions, games rides and spectacular fireworks in the evening.

We truly have a wonderful community as there are so many worthwhile causes calling on funds each year and, each year, the community gives and gives.  We have been truly fortunate this year to have our major sponsors, the Shoalhaven City Council, the Milton Ulladulla Ex-Servos Club and funding from the NSW Government.

For the 8th year in a row the Milton Ulladulla ExServos Club is pleased to be involved with the Blessing of the Fleet festival, for the 2018 Festival by an increased commitment of $10,000 with a platinum sponsorship. So don’t miss our Ulladulla spectacular annual Blessing of the Fleet Festival on Easter Sunday 1 April 2018, one of the biggest festivals on the South Coast.

There will be a myriad of colour for the Milton Ulladulla Ex Servos Club Blessing of the Fleet Parade for the start of the day with the wonderful and imaginative floats with the festival’s princesses and their partners.ulladulla exservos club

The Milton Ulladulla Ex Servo Club Blessing of the Fleet Parade is led by St Peter the patron saint of the Fishing Fleet following by the float of the winning Festival princess and her partner.

The Horizon Credit Union Ulladulla Princess Ball is being held at the Ulladulla Civic Centre on Saturday 17 March. “What better way to celebrate our community than to be a gold sponsor of the biggest event in Ulladulla. We’re thrilled to be a part of it” said Ulladulla Branch Manager, Kevin Whitford. Horizon will be sponsoring the Blessing of the Fleet Princess Ball on Saturday 17 March 2018.

Rotary InternationalMilton Ulladulla Rotary is a non-profit organisation and raises money for charity, each year they approach the community for financial help as this is their only means of raising funds necessary to run the Festival.  And each year the community pulls together and very generously donates to showcase Ulladulla to both locals and holidays makers alike. 

The Milton Ulladulla Rotary Club thanks all our sponsors and supporters, we urge the community to avail themselves of the goods and services these businesses have to offer. The Milton Ulladulla Rotary Club have been organising the Ulladulla Blessing of the Fleet Festival for over ten years and the men and women in Milton Ulladulla Rotary make time in their business schedule, spending hundreds of hours to make this event possible.

The financial support of all our sponsors and supporters is gratefully accepted and makes it possible for Milton Ulladulla Rotary Club to run the Festival.  For without their input, we could not afford to present the Festival event to make it as popular as it is today.
