Dinner creates fundraising success

NEXT year’s Anzac Day Bargara service received dazzling community support at Friday night’s Coral Coast Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Black and White Gala Dinner.

“It’s terrific to see the community get behind an event like this,” said Bundaberg Regional Councillor Greg Barnes, also the Coral Coast Chamber of Commerce and Tourism president.

Cr Barnes said 3500 people turn up to the Bargara foreshore Anzac Day service each year, where the chamber serve up 750 delicious, hot breakfasts in an astounding hour-and-a-half.

Although a final tally had not been reached by yesterday, Cr Barnes said the splendid dinner at Bargara Golf Club was well-attended and successful in raising a substantial amount towards the 14th annual $15,000 breakfast bill.

Cr Barnes said the chamber had already held a fundraising bus trip and also planned to hold a fundraising golf day to help finance the breakfast.
