“There have been so many dif­fer­ent prizes that have been gen­er­ously do­nated from the com­mu­nity and lo­cal busi­nesses of Ma­reeba and Cairns,” she said.

“We would not be able to fundraise with­out the gen­eros­ity of the com­mu­nity and our fan­tas­tic voun­teers.”

Prizes range from fruit and veg­eta­bles, blan­kets, makeup, jew­ellery and a $300 voucher just to name a few.

A door prize will be up for grabs, as well as 100 oth­ers prizes for the cent sale.

All money raised will go to­wards help­ing Far North Queens­lan­ders liv­ing with cys­tic fi­bro­sis and re­search ini­tia­tives.

Tick­ets are 1 cent each and will be sold in $1 bunches that can be pur­chased on Tues­day from Cor­netts Supa IGA Ma­reeba or by call­ing 4092 7115.

The cent sale will be held on Saturday Septem­ber 16 at 1pm at Ma­reeba Leagues club.

There will be a $3 en­try fee which will in­clude a morn­ing tea.
