Letter of Support from The Hon. Grace Grace MP

The Hon. Grace Grace MP,

State Member for Brisbane Central


31 October 2011



Dear Sarina,


As the State Member of Parliament representing Brisbane Central, I would like to express my support for an application for a grant under the Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund by the Italian Festival Inc.


Italian Festival Inc is seeking funding to assist with the organization of Italian Week, an initiative of the Consulate of Italy in Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Over the past five years since Italian Week’s inception, the organizers have arranged high level multicultural festivals, which celebrate Italian culture and lifestyle and is fully integrated with Queensland institutions and government organisations.


These cultural events are free and have in the past included several concerts in Queen Street Mall as well as collaborations with The Gallery of Modern Art, The Queensland Symphonic Orchestra, Opera Queensland and many others.


Italian Week has become the focal point for the Italian Community and for Australians interested in the many facets of cultural and multicultural activities of one of the World’s oldest and richest civilisations. It represents a great opportunity for truly celebrating the many generations of immigrant culture present in Queensland.

I am pleased to offer my strong support to Italian Festival Inc and I ask that you give their application for funding due consideration.



Yours sincerely,


Grace Grace MP

State Member for Brisbane Central
