About the USC Student 'Crafty Crew'
The Crafty Crew is made up of six USC students who created the event on behalf of Sunshine Coast Turf Club as a part of a third-year Public Relations project (CMN243). Our aim is to work with local businesses and clientele to achieve our goal of creating a place for a younger audience on a Friday night that is more than just a place to party. In addition to this, the event will raise funds and awareness for the charity, because we believe it is important to engage a younger audience to help them 'take control'.
