The donation was raised via the entry fee to the outdoor Sculpture event at Willinga Park that also provided visitors with a glossy programme of the competition entries. The sixty Sculpture on Clyde volunteers who came together to make the event the success that it was were delighted with the generosity and enthusiasm of visitors to the Indoor and Outdoor events. As a legacy of this year's Sculpture on Clyde the Batemans Bay community will inherit a new acquisition for their sculpture walk while there is a crowd funding initiative under way to acquire two more pieces Convenor of the eurobodalla tourism association (ETA) , Lei Parker said "In all the event is a major success raising the profile of the South East region. It was terrific to see the solid support shown by Destination NSW and to see the event attract interest from across the state with high visitation from outside of the area. "Though it is now a Regional event of a truely international standard we are reminded that it is a legacy event that builds a perpetual cultural reward for the Batemans Bay and Eurobodalla community via its generosity of annual acquisitions that can be enjoyed year around by visitors and the community alike". "Congratulations need to be extended to the Batemans Bay Business and Tourism Chamber for their vision in creating this event. The event initially was to raise the profile of the Batemans Bay area to a wider community and this has been achieved in diamonds. To see it also raising funds for an organisation like Muddy Puddles is a delightful bonus." "Special thanks must also go to Mr Terry Snow for embracing the event".
