Granite Belt Drought Fund Raiser
September 28 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$10
FRIENDS of QUEENSLAND & NSW … STANTHORPE NEEDS YOUR HELP…
From battling the worst drought in living memory to recent bushfires, we invite you to our award-winning wine region which oozes fresh local produce to take part in this wonderful fundraiser event.
Saturday 28th of September the Granite Belt Christmas Farm will be hosting a fundraiser for the ‘Granite Belt Drought Assist’ to help provide water to rural residents. The situation is dire and our community is struggling. This is a day for families and friends from far and wide to come together and show true ‘Aussie’ spirit.
Our local community is donating their time and services to this great cause in hope to raise $10,000 for the ‘Granite Belt Drought Assist’ and take our hats off to our local Applethorpe Rural Fire Brigade for their extraordinary efforts in fighting the recent bushfires.
Pack the Car, throw in a slab of water, bring your smiles and enjoy this great day filled with delicious food, spectacular bands, action packed activities & a ‘Thank you’ presentation from the mayor.
The official program will be released in the coming week.
MAKE A WEEKEND OF IT: Experience country hospitality at its best! Stanthorpe is surrounded by beautiful B&B’s, Motels and Retreats. Take a scenic drive around the Granite Belt and explore the diverse landscapes, cellar doors, breweries and gourmet food bowl that we have to offer.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you would like to contribute to the raffles or auction on the day please drop off items at the Granite Belt Christmas Farm with your name on it as the mayor will be thanking all donations on the day.
Thank you in advance to all the support that has been received for the fundraiser, we hope to do our community proud and deliver precious water.
