Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!
Event:
Buy a Bale to help our drought-affected farmers
What a wonderful initiative - supporting our Queensland farmers who are drought-affected! Living in Australia, I have come to realise that Australians are extremely charitable and love to help out whenever and wherever they can. What better way than to attend a Fundraising Buy A Bale Dinner, with a superb menu on offer, as well as great entertainment!

    So, as you can see every dollar counts towards supporting our farmers!

    All funds raised by the Sunshine Coast Community and the Caloundra Power Boat Club will go towards the Sunshine Coast hay run departing from the Sunshine Coast on Sunday 27th November 2016. The hay run is to assist, not just the farmers, but their communities as well.

    For as little as $20, members of the Sunshine Community can 'buy' a bale of hay at the Caloundra Power Boat Club, donate money for hay into donation barrels at various sites on the Sunshine Coast or come to this fund raising dinner at the Caloundra Power Boat Club on Saturday 24th September 2016 to raise much-needed funds to help feed struggling livestock.
