In 2014, Brett Mills came up with the idea of ‘Millsy’s Pop-Up Restaurant’ - a unique way for he and his team at Ken Mills Toyota to support the Sunshine Coast Community.
For just one night a year, our staff transform our Maroochydore Service workshop into a fine dining experience capped at 150 people. Catered by Capelli Foods, guests sit at one long table and enjoy a night of fun, fundraising and incredible food. The ticket price covers the cost of the food, beverages and equipment hire so with the entire event hosted by volunteer Ken Mills Toyota staff; all funds raised go direct to the event beneficiary.
Last year, the event couldn’t go ahead due to COVID-19 restrictions but we are back for 2021 and aim to make the most of the simple pleasure of eating together while supporting those who need it most.
That’s where we need you! Are you a Sunshine Coast based registered charity or community organisation that would like to partner with Ken Mills Toyota as the event beneficiary for 2021? Is there a specific program or item that could change outcomes for Sunshine Coast locals? Our last event raised $78,000, specifically for the purchase of a special piece of transport equipment for the Paediatric Critical Care Unit at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. The stretcher was needed to dramatically improve time taken to transport critically ill kids from the coast to specialist care.
The only thing we ask of our beneficiary is that they supply one major prize for our auction through leveraging their own connections.
Applications close May 31st 2021 at midnight. We would love to hear from you!
