Earlier in the week Sunshine Coast Lightning received the Sport & Recreation Award at the Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards.
Lightning were nominated by members of the Sunshine Coast community in recognition of their strong contribution in the community in 2017.
CEO Danielle Smith received the award on behalf of the Club at the ceremony with Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson, also Lightning’s No.1 ticket holder, presenting the award.
One of Sunshine Coast’s three charity partners, the Daniel Morcombe Foundation won the Community Organisation Award, and its founders, Bruce & Denise Morcombe jointly won Citizen of the Year.
Sunshine Coast Lightning will come to Melbourne on March 3 for a practice match against the Melbourne Vixens. Get along and show your support at the State Netball and Hockey Centre with the trial starting at 10:00am.
