The IMB Bank Cook Community Classic is a series of great community events that help us appreciate, support and value the local Sutherland Shire and St George community. It’s about holding one great day of events that benefits many!
The primary focus of the IMB Bank Cook Community Classic is a large community event held each year at Cronulla Beach and the adjacent Park. The Classic this year celebrates 14 years since its inception. This year the carnival is moving back to Cronulla Beach Park.
This year the event launch will be held on Saturday 26 July at Elouera Surf Club, carnival day at Cronulla Beach and park, on Sunday 21 November.
Through a series of activities including a community carnival, a fundraising raffle, an open water swim and gala ball “The Classic” provides a fundraising platform for St George and Sutherland Shire community groups – including sports clubs, local charities, school P&Cs and other community organisations. They can participate in this large scale event without having to attract sponsors, arrange prizes, organise venues and generate publicity to support their efforts. By pooling resources and holding one annual event, smaller organisations can raise significant funds and awareness for their cause through the combined efforts of the classic’s organising committee.

It is once again my great pleasure to serve as patron of the 2021 IMB Bank Cook Community Classic.
Now in its fourteenth year, the Classic is a great family day out, celebrating and supporting local organisations that make our community strong.
To date the Classic has raised around $1.5 million for over 69 local charities and community organisations such as Civic Disability Services, Project Youth, Giants Baseball Club, Kurnell Mens Shed and many others.
The IMB Bank Cook Community Classic relies on the generous support of our local surf lifesaving clubs and I once again thank Cronulla, North Cronulla, Elouera and Wanda for their willingness to support our wider community.
I also extend my gratitude to all of the corporate sponsors, particularly IMB Bank who have been with the Classic since its inception and are once again the major sponsor. I thank them for their continued support. I would also like to thank all sponsors who stayed on during the pandemic to support the Classic, despite the event being cancelled.
All of the sponsors contribute to making the Classic an uplifting event which celebrates our community and brings it together.
The charities and community organisations supported through the Classic are run by dedicated staff, often volunteers, who make tremendous efforts to care for our community and beyond.
Please take the time to support these organisations by purchasing a ticket in the raffle or by coming along to enjoy the carnival atmosphere and take part in the activities during the day.
This year the event will be bigger and better than before, and will return to our original location on Cronulla Beach.
