Little Sparrow PR artist Casey Barnes has been announced as Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation’s latest Ambassador, adding to a growing list of celebrity supporters which includes the likes of Kelly Slater and Sally Pearson.
The foundation believes Casey’s love of animals and his passion for the Gold Coast makes him a perfect fit to represent the reputable Wildlife Hospital Foundation. “I am delighted to be announced as an official Ambassador for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation. The work they do saving the lives of local native wildlife is incredible and I’m proud to get behind this worthy cause and help bring awareness to their vital work.” Casey said.
“We are really grateful to have Casey on board as an Ambassador of Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation and look forward to working with Casey on a variety of campaigns’ said a spokesperson from the Foundation.
The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation supports the vital work of Currumbin Wildlife Hospital to treat, rehabilitate and release approximately 8000 sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife patients every year.
At the media call to announce the partnership yesterday, Casey named a koala joey ‘Valentine’ which is fitting in the lead up to Valentine’s Day. Casey also has a song of the same name out at radio.
Casey and his band ‘Kick’ will also be entertaining the crowd at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation Annual Gala Dinner, the charities major fundraiser for the year, which will conclude the popular Animals with Attitude ‘Giant Koala’ Sculpture Trail on May 29 this year at Jupiter’s Casino.
In support of his new title as Ambassador, Casey performed live at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Markets on Friday 13 February to help celebrate this milestone.
