Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

While the play­ers were hard at work pre­par­ing for the first State of Ori­gin bak­ers from New South Wales and Queens­land were al­ready bak­ing hot as they faced off for the launch of the 2016 Pie of Ori­gin. This an­nual fund rais­ing ini­tia­tive was launched at Tum­ba­long Park on Wed­nes­day 25th May.

With ri­val­ries run­ning hot af­ter Beefy’s Pie (Queens­land) 2015 vic­tory, the team from Glenorie Bak­ery were hun­gry to bring the cup home to New South Wales.

Ex­cited crowds gath­ered as former NRL star Jimmy Smith called the teams to the face off with Rob Pi­rina from Glenorie Bak­ery along with NRL leg­end Mario Fenech sup­port­ing New South Wales. Queens­land cap­tain Mark Hobbs from Beefy’s Pies came for­ward how­ever Ker­rod Wal­ters who pub­li­cally de­clared him­self a Beefy’s sup­porter failed to ar­rive. Along with former league leg­end Paul Dunn the crowds cheered on sup­port­ing their state as more peo­ple come out to show their state pride.

This year the teams are look­ing to raise $15,000, proud to be once again sup­port­ing the Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal at West­mead and the Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion in Queens­land.

With the Pie of Ori­gin now in its fifth year it holds a spe­cial place in Mr Pi­rina’s heart with three chil­dren of his own and is proud to sup­port his state en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one to get in­volved "To sup­port your state this ori­gin se­ries is easy and de­li­cious. Sim­ply add $1 to any Glenorie Bak­ery pie to make it a Pie of Ori­gin. It’s that sim­ple."

So come on New South Wales it’s time to sup­port your state, sup­port your mates and get a Glenorie Bak­ery pie on your plate. To­gether we can help sup­port our kids and bring the Pie of Ori­gin back to New South Wales where it be­longs. Go the Blues!
