Dear CADCAI Performers and Volunteers

Posted by Mary Low, Thursday, 21st March 2013 @ 8:57pm

  • Dear CADCAI Performers and Volunteers

    In conjunction with Sim Hayward, CADCAI would like to invite you to a thank you BBQ for your recent contributions to 2013 CNY Festival on 13 April 2013 (see Events ) 

    Sim and the Hayward family have been long supporters, benefactors and patron to CADCAI and the
    DCAII performing arts group.

    In 2004 the Daryl Hayward Trust Fund was set up to assist the lion and Chinese dancers to travel to Bendigo to participate in their first Bendigo Easter Festival.

    Since then, the Fund have assisted the performers in their cultural exchange to Zhanjiang in China in 2007 and three more trips to Bendigo.

    Over the years, the Hayward family have continued to support CADCAI

    by allowing us to use their warehouse space and office space above Beethoven’s café rent-free,

    for the CADCAI office, storage of the Lit Sung Goong artefacts as well as space for rehearsals for our performing arts group.

    In May 2009, after the passing of Daryl,

    CADCAI set up the Daryl Hayward Lion Dance Memorial Shield and encouragement award to honour his passion and support for our performers

    CADCAI is grateful to Sim and the Hayward family and would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for hosting this Thank You BBQ.
