Special Children’s Christmas Party 2018

McCormack helps build lasting memories at the Special Children’s Christmas Party

Being a sponsor of this year’s Special Children’s Christmas Party for over 3000 special needs kids and their families was the perfect way for the McCormack team to top off a busy year.


Held on Saturday December 15th at the Melbourne Showgrounds, the Special Children’s Christmas Party provides children with special needs, their families and carers, the opportunity to celebrate Christmas away from the challenges of their everyday lives. It also helps them to meet others in similar circumstances, make new friends, and just take time out to relax and have fun.


The event has been running for over 25 years all across Australia and is one of the biggest events of its kind, supported by hundreds of charity groups, organisations, schools, government and community groups every year.

As a sponsor, McCormack was able to contribute to a meaningful activity that makes a difference to so many kids and their families at what is potentially a tough time of year for them. It’s a positive, inspirational social event that brings out the Christmas spirit in anyone who attends, and provides a bit of respite to those who sometimes struggle through the Christmas season.

Free food, gifts, amusement rides, an animal farm, live entertainment, roaming superheroes and fairies, activities and, of course, Santa, meant there were smiles all round, and many lifelong friends and memories were made.

It was an absolute privilege to be a part of such a wonderful event and see the fun being had by all the amazing people who attended.


Special thanks go to our photographer, Paul Kolarik at PRK Photography, who attended on the day to take these beautiful photos.
