The recent Dinner With The Captains has raised an amazing $32,000 for the South Burnett Relay For Life.
“Given the difficulties we are experiencing on an ever-increasing basis through the drought, it is a remarkable tally,” organising committee chairman Carl Rackemann said.
The dinner – which featured interviews with Commonwealth Games gold medallist swimmer Lisa Forrest, former Australian Rugby Union captain Mark Ella and retired Test cricket great Ian Healy – was held at Kingaroy Town Hall on July 28.
As well as ticket sales, money was raised through raffles, a live auction and a silent auction.
The 2018 South Burnett Relay For Life will be held on October 13-14 at Kingaroy Showground.
One of the largest group of entrants so far has come from Kingaroy State High School, which has nine teams entered and have already begun fundraising.
