Dunningham Park to be venue for Cook Community Classic on Sunday November 18

The IMB Bank Cook Community Classic will be held on Sunday, November 18, for the eleventh year – and in a new location.

Due to the redevelopment of the Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club, the event will be staged in Dunningham Park, North Cronulla.

Organisers say the new venue “has created the opportunity for a family fun day bigger and better than before”.

“The Classic is a great family day out, celebrating and supporting local organisations that make our community strong,” a spokeswoman said.

“To date, the Classic has raised in excess of $1 million for more than 78 local charities and community organisations such as Civic Disability Services, Project Youth, Giants Baseball Club, Sutherland Shire Lioness Club and many others.”

The day will begin on the beach with the annual open water swim followed by the Bate Bay Battle between the surf clubs.

At the same time, in the park, families can enjoy fete stalls, jumping castle, a reptile show, Ettingshausens performers and the Kirrawee High School band.

For the first time, thanks to Westfield Miranda, Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol will entertain the little kids on stage during the morning’s series of events.

Prime Minister and Cook MP Scott Morrison has been the patron of the event since its inception in 2008.

“It is a pleasure again to serve as patron to the IMB Bank Cook Community Classic,” Mr Morrison said in a statement.

“I thank all of those involved to make the event possible especially the generous support of our local surf lifesaving clubs.”
