Ho­tel uses parma power

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

OUR com­mu­nity has banded to­gether once again to sup­port a cause af­fect­ing far too many Aus­tralians.

To mark the end of Parma for a Farmer month, the Cri­te­rion Ho­tel put on one of its big­gest events to raise money for drought-stricken farm­ers.

The Parma For A Farmer cam­paign is part of the Aus­tralian foun­da­tion Buy a Bale. Parma for a Farmer is an ini­tia­tive en­gag­ing with ho­tels, clubs, restau­rants and eater­ies which have agreed to give $1 for ev­ery parma sold.

Through­out the month of Au­gust, $1 from ev­ery parma sold was do­nated to the Buy a Bale foun­da­tion, which cam­paigns year round to raise funds to sup­port Aus­tralian farm­ers.

It was a full house on Au­gust 31 as din­ers en­joyed fan­tas­tic mu­sic from Jammed Up, an auc­tion of do­nated prizes from many lo­cal busi­nesses around town and one fi­nal parmi­giana for good mea­sure.

Through­out Au­gust, The Cri has cooked 375 par­mas and raised more than $3500 for the Parma for a Farmer cam­paign.

The $3500 will be enough to buy 35 large bales of hay.

The Cri­te­rion Ho­tel would like to thank all who bought a parma through­out Au­gust. A spe­cial men­tion must go to all the lo­cal busi­nesses who sup­ported the cause by do­nat­ing money or goods for the auc­tion.
