Narellan Town Centre general manager Brad Page says Camden Monopoly is such a great community project there was no way they’d let the sponsorship opportunity pass.
Narellan Town Centre, along with The Hermitage, Gledswood Hills, Meals on Wheels and Plus Fitness have signed up as gold sponsors of Camden Monopoly, which is now in production.
“It’s a classic, timeless game that connects family and friends,’’ says Mr Page.
“The opportunity to have a local edition of an all-time family favourite is something we believe residents will be proud of to pull out of their cupboards.”
The 2,000 copies of the game are currently being produced and will first be available for purchase at Camden’s Jacaranda Festival in November.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, thanked all 12 sponsors for their involvement.
“It was so important we had supportive organisations on board because the money we receive from the sale of this game will be donated to Lifeline Macarthur and the Camden Wollondilly Domestic Violence Committee,” Cr Fedeli said.
“We want to raise as much money as we can for these two very deserving organisations.’’
Camden Council surveyed the community, asking for feedback on the locations they felt should be included on the board, and received more than 3,500 responses.
The 22 locations selected, include Camden Airport, Leppington train station, the Old St Thomas Chapel, St John’s Anglican Church, St Paul’s Catholic Church, Narellan Sports Hub and Teen Ranch.
Birriwa Reserve outdoor youth space, Mater Dei Chapel, Gledswood Homestead, Camelot House, Belgenny Farm, Carrington Centennial Hospital, Argyle Street, Camden Showground, Bicentennial Equestrian Park, the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan, Macarthur Park, Camden Town Farm, Oran Park Library and Cobbitty village also made the cut.
