Kingaroy Men’s Shed members are feeling chuffed after their recent “Dinner Under The Stars” raised several thousand dollars for the LifeFlight Foundation.
The open-air dinner, held last month next to the Men’s Shed headquarters at Kingaroy Airport, attracted almost 300 diners.
Kingaroy Men’s Shed president Tom Johnson told southburnett.com.au the final figures were still being worked out but it was probably about $4500.
He said everyone seemed happy with the night, especially as the Men’s Shed’s first attempt at holding the dinner was derailed last year by COVID-19.
“It was a good turnout,” Tom said.
“The kids were all able to run around in safety because they were in a fenced area. The parents didn’t have to to worry about them.”
He praised the entertainment, which included live music.
“The Sempf Family was marvellous,” Tom said.
He also thanked all the sponsors that had come on board to make the evening happen.
Tom said the Kingaroy Men’s Shed was considering doing it all again next year – with a few minor changes – but it would be up to the members to decide.
