Who doesn’t love a trip down memory lane, or sitting with friends and family for a competitive game of Monopoly?
This year you will have the chance to purchase a very limited edition version of an old favourite with our very own Ku-ring-gai edition of Monopoly. Featuring iconic locations from within Ku-ring-gai, customised tokens, and community chest and chance cards.
The best part about the release of this localised board game – 100% of all profits from the sale of the Ku-ring-gai edition of Monopoly will go to community groups and causes directly assisting the Ku-ring-gai community.
Our major beneficiaries are:
- Lifeline Harbour to Hawksbury
- Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter
- St Lucy’s School
- KYDS Youth Development Service
During February we will be running a photography competition to source the best photographs that capture the essence of beautiful Ku-ring-gai.
The best photo(s) as judged by our panel of experts will feature front and centre on the game board, and all of the runners-up will be exhibited in The Gallery @ St Ives Shopping Village from 19th March until 2nd April.
- First Place: Best photo will be featured on the Ku-ring-gai Monopoly board, plus the winner will receive $300 cash plus a Ku-ring-gai edition of Monopoly.
- Second Place: $100 St Ives Shopping Village gift card plus a Ku-ring-gai edition of Monopoly.
- Third Place: $50 St Ives Shopping Village gift card plus a Ku-ring-gai edition of Monopoly.
