Drought fundraiser for Rural Press Club dinner

Beef Central, 27/10/2015

Queensland’s popular and active Rural Hats_HeelsPress Club will hold a special drought relief fundraising dinner in Brisbane next month.

The location will be the atmospheric Speaker’s Green in the Parliament House precinct.

The dinner will be held on Friday 13 November from 6.30pm. Dress code is black tie and boots.

Patrons are encouraged to put on their best boots for a night of food, drink, entertainment and a charity auction for an excellent cause.

All proceeds will go towards helping families and communities in drought-affected regions of Queensland.

Funds raised will go to support the ongoing work of three charities:

  • Western Queensland Drought Appeal
  • Queensland Country Women’s Association – Public Rural Crisis Fund
  • Buy A Bale foundation

The Rural Press Club of Queensland has acknowledged the support of the Speaker and Members of the Parliament of Queensland in providing the venue.

Club president Brendan Egan said the Parliament belonged to the people, and it seemed an appropriate venue for Queenslanders to come together to raise money to support their fellow Queenslanders suffering from this devastating drought still gripping 80 percent of the State.

Mr Egan said the night will bring a fun, rural theme to Parliament House providing a unique opportunity to celebrate the important role and contribution of Queensland’s rural sector.

The Club also acknowledged the generous support of its dinner event. Charity auction supporters confirmed so far including Super Butcher, Clovely Estate Wines, Rocky Point Prawns, Toowoomba Party Hire, Fortitude Brewing Company, and Natureworks.


Tickets are $150 a head, or $1500 per table of ten. Tickets can be purchased via this website.
