Looking for Sponsors!

As a fund raising event for worthy local causes the Big Bay Swim, via the Rotary Club of Point Gellibrand, is always looking for new businesses who want to come on board and sponsor our swim.

Funds raised go to supporting projects in local communities and around the world and sponsorship provides fantastic positive exposure for brands.

We have many packages on offer, from $250 to $10,000 so why not take a look? Head to our contact page if you are interested in sponsoring our swim!
