 A change of management may see a bigger Glamstand this coming Mardi Gras

The Bobby Goldsmith Foundation’s decade-long management of the Mardi Gras parade's best viewing spot, Glamstand, has come to an end.
Citing a ‘reduction of net income from the event’ as the main reason behind their decision, BGF are handing over the production and management of Glamstand to New Mardi Gras in 2012.
“The purpose of producing this event is to raise money to fund programs for people living with HIV,” said Martin Walsh, BGF President. “As an organisation BGF is constantly reviewing how we can best undertake fundraising that delivers the best return to our clients.”
Although Mardi Gras will take control of Glamstand as of next year, BGF will remain the main beneficiary of the event. “With NMG managing and delivering the Mardi Gras Parade, it’s a great opportunity to integrate Glamstand into the overall production, and take it to a new level.” says NMG Chair Peter Urmson.

Tickets for the 2012 Glamstand go on sale 21 November.
