Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
