Keith and Tintinara District Show Society

The Keith and Tintinara District Show Society Inc has completed works restoring the memorial gates and improving signage at the entrance of the showground to improve visibility and generate revenue for the local community, thanks to a special grant.

The society received $2,730 from Domino’s Give for Good small grants program in partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR).

The Keith and Tintinara District Show Society’s President Scott Manser said the society was thrilled to receive the grant from Domino’s Give for Good.

“The grant allowed us to paint the gate bricks, put in a new garden bed and update the signage, which had needed to be done for a long time,” Scott said.  

“The updated frontage helped increase visibility and was ready for our major fundraiser of the year, the Keith Diesel and Dirt Derby, which saw a record 11,500 people enter through the new gateway.”

Domino’s Director of Giving John Harney said the Keith and Tintinara District Show Society was the perfect candidate for the Give for Good small grants program.

“At Domino’s, we are keen to support programs that help provide opportunities for leadership and entrepreneurship,” John said.

"This show society assists the local community in generating income and providing facilities for many local community groups to come together.

“We hope that by supporting the Keith and Tintinara District Show Society, we are providing the Keith region with the opportunity to maximise revenue by attracting more visitors and tourists to fundraising events with the updated entrance and signage.”

Domino’s Give for Good small grants program launched in 2016 through the FRRR with 20 not-for-profit organisations and community groups sharing in just under $90,000.
