What is Corkage for a Cause?

Foundation Barossa’s annual Christmas appeal – Corkage for a Cause – will support our Brighter Beginnings Back to School Appeal. The appeal will help families in need by providing a $50 voucher to support back to school costs.

We have a significant number of families in the Barossa living under financial pressure and many students who may have additional needs.

Being able to give families the gift of a Back-to-School voucher really helps children experience a sense of belonging. Being able to buy stationery, a school bag, a new pair of shoes, or for some even socks and undies, may seem small but can really make a difference to the life of a child.

We know that the Barossa is a community that looks after its own.

We are reaching out to all cellar doors, restaurants and bars in the Barossa region to help spread a little bit of happiness this Christmas to those that need it most
