After the floods of 2011, Sony Music released the Flood Relief album with money raised going to the Sony Foundation. The Sony Foundations selected the Salvation Army as the benefactor of the money raised and the state-of-the-art Sound Point facility in Goodna, Queensland was built with the proceeds.

Sony Music Chairman and CEO and Sony Foundation Governor Denis Handlin was in Goodna yesterday for the official opening of the new centre where Sony artist Pete Murray also performed.

600 homes in Goodna were affected by the Queensland floods. It was decided to build the Sound Point facility for the benefit of the whole community.

In 2009, following the Victorian bushfires, Sony raised $1.7 million from the sale of the benefit album ‘Bushfire AID’ for the Sony Foundation to distribute. Denis also drove that project.

The Sony Foundation is the charitable arm of the Sony group of companies in Australia. The Foundation has contributed over $12 million to charity over the past decade.
