Fresh idea at 2017 gala dinner
KARAOKE will be a first at this year’s Annual Fruit and Vegetable Growers Gala Dinner next Friday night with the event getting bigger ever year.
Mareeba District Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association Inc. president Joe Moro said the dinner has become not just an industry dinner but a chance for farmers and associated businesses to come together for a night.
“It is a significate way of showing the importance and permanent jobs locally that are created because of the farming industry,” he said.
“We also give something back to the community through the auction.
“In the last 10 years we have raised over $70,000 for the local hospital foundation.”
The 2017Annual Gala Dinner will be held on Friday, September 15. Doors will open at 6.30 pm at the Mareeba International Club.
