Brendon Murray, Partner, Bentleys and Professor Jennifer Radbourne, Chair of Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation (SCAF) co-hosted an exclusive function celebrating the arts, community and philanthropy, in the Bentley’s Board Room at Minyama on Wednesday evening 22 September.

Guests included Andrew Wallace, Federal Member for Fisher, Jarrod Bleijie, State Member for Kawana, philanthropists, artists, business people, friends and board directors of SCAF. All enjoyed a special performance by acclaimed cellist and inaugural artistic director of the Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival, Louise King.

Brendon Murray spoke about Bentley’s and his personal support for the arts on the Sunshine Coast and the important contribution the arts make to the community.

“We need culture to create the warmth and richness of our community”, he said.

Professor Radbourne spoke about the Foundation’s activities since launching in February 2020 and described donors to SCAF as ‘investors’ in greater social connection, achievement and identity on the Sunshine Coast.

“For SCAF, the donor is an investor – giving money to the arts in the Sunshine Coast region, the place where we live, to the artists who inspire, excite, enrich or relax us, realising a dream of a prosperous place and a community enhanced over time by their value of the arts.

The Foundation will announce the artists and organisations who will be recipients of its Gifted program in November.
