The Tathra Wharf to Waves Event would not exist without the sponsorship of businesses. These businesses provide financial and in-kind support to enable the organisers to cover the expenses of running the event. Funds raised from competitor entries, merchandise and refreshments are donated back to the community - the Tathra Surf Lifesaving Club, the Tathra Pre-School, the Tathra Primary School and the Tathra Fire Service.
