Mayor Erika Vickery OAM sums up the triple j One Night Stand held in Lucindale on 14 September 2019.
The triple j One Night Stand has been a wonderful success.
There was an overwhelming feeling of euphoria from everyone who attended the event. The feeling of wellbeing and happiness of the concert goers is reflected in the generosity of the donations given which raised $22,558 for the Stand Like Stone Foundation, which will be equally split between supporting the Lucindale Community Pool and scholarships for young people to participate in the Limestone Coast Leadership Program.
We thank the ABC and triple j for choosing Lucindale and thank you to all the artists who performed.
The whole weekend showcased Lucindale’s community spirit. The atmosphere in Lucindale in the lead up to the concert and during the concert was wonderful and spilled out to the surrounding region.
The Lucindale community and the Naracoorte Lucindale Council worked hard to make sure everything ran smoothly. Credit to the Naracoorte Lucindale Council elected members who with short notice said yes to hosting the One Night Stand and committed $60,000 to ensuring everything inside the Lucindale Oval ran smoothly.
Thank you to the Limestone Coast police, ambulance service and St Johns who gave their support without hesitation and kept everyone safe.
The One Night Stand was a showcase of everyone working together to realise the vision of Lucindale’s One Night Stand bid group.
