Thal­lon grazes for drought re­lief

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THAL­LON’S iconic painted si­los lit up the night sky on Satur­day dur­ing the Graz­ing at the Wa­ter­hole long-ta­ble din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The event – a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Thal­lon Progress As­so­ci­a­tion and Heart and Heart Events – aimed to show­case and sup­port lo­cal pro­duc­ers while of­fer­ing a truly lo­cal and unique event for the broader com­mu­nity to en­joy.

Thal­lon Progress As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Leanne Bros­nan said the night was “sen­sa­tional”.

“We had about 120 guests with the event com­pletely sold out,” she said.

“The si­los were lit up by Grain­corp and it was just a beau­ti­ful evening.”

Guests were also treated to lo­cal im­ages of Thal­lon that were pro­jected onto one of the Grain­corp sheds near the si­los. A beau­ti­ful art­work of the lo­cal Moonie River was also auc­tioned off, while the Farm­house Cafe in St Ge­orge wowed guests with its desserts fea­tur­ing lo­cal blue­ber­ries. All pro­ceeds will go to Drought An­gels, as much of Queens­land con­tin­ues to strug­gle through drought.
