BIDDING ON A WINNER
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.
