Hotel helps Yasi recovery
FOR 500 pub-goers it was more than just liquid gold t h a t wa s r a i s e d a t t h e Herbert Hotel after Cyclone Yasi recently.
The generous group put together an impressive $ 4000 to help those affected most by the disaster.
Herbert Hotel publican Paul Venturato said t he fundraising night had been the perfect way to wind down after a hectic week of cleaning, as well as collecting money for those who needed it most.
‘‘ We had a lot of donations . . . it was really well supported,’’ he said.
‘‘ We auctioned off prizes and also got people to give a gold coin donation.
‘‘ The money went to the local Rotary so that it would go straight to those who needed it rather than down south.’’
The Reclining Rockers also gave their time, and music, to the worthy cause.
