BID­DING ON A WIN­NER

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Front Page - WORDS:

Go­ing once, go­ing twice, sold. Far North Queens­land busi­ness­men and women dug deep to raise money for the Far North Queens­land Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion at the an­nual Power of Pal­lets Auc­tion & Cock­tail Gala. Who would have thought that old, run­down wooden pal­lets could be trans­formed into pieces of dec­o­ra­tive fur­ni­ture? These creative pieces raised more than $33,000. Well-known tele­vi­sion star Jamie Durie co-hosted the night and cre­ated quite the frenzy. Carly Grossek from ta­ble 16, who suc­cess­fully bid for a three-piece ta­ble set, said it was her first time at­tend­ing the fundraiser. Carly said she loved the at­mos­phere and am­bi­ence of the night, and how ev­ery­one who cre­ated some­thing for auc­tion took the time out of their sched­ule to make some­thing mag­i­cal.
