The Clink

As successful applicants in the 2016 Salsa Sorensen Funding round, the Douglas Shire's beloved Clink Theatre received new carpet throughout the historic venue.

Junior Crocs

In 2017 the Port Douglas Junior Crocs AFL team successfully submitted an application to the Salsa Sorensen Association Inc to fund the purchase of new jerseys for the tea. In addition, some equipment and drinking containers were also purchased on their behalf.

Paws & Claws

Offering a refuge to the Shire's animal population and working in often thankless and tiring conditions, Paws and Claws have been recipients of the Salsa Sorensen Association In in both 2015 and 2017 with funding paying for the cost of vaccinations, desexing and microchipping of cats and dogs.
