Energex gives powerful support to CareFlight’s night sight project

Sunshine Coast RACQ CareFlight Rescue crews see clearly at night, thanks to long term supporter Energex’s $50,000 funding of the vital Night Vision Goggle (NVG) project.

“NVGs are a vital piece of equipment for night time flying,” CareFlight Deputy Chairman Don Moffatt said.

“Energex’s donation ensures CareFlight has NVG equipment and our Sunshine Coast crews the necessary training.

“We are so grateful to Energex, not just for funding this project, but its tremendous support over the last 20 years.”

Energex and other supporters will be the toast of the coast at an official Gala Ball thank you event held at the Sunshine Coast CareFlight base this Friday from 5.30pm.

It comes after this year’s Gala Ball raised a record $175,000.

“We simply have amazing supporters throughout the community and we couldn’t do it without them,” he said.

“They are saving lives and making a difference every day of the year.

“That’s something to be extremely proud of, and we would like to say thank you.”
