Just over 200 people turned out on Saturday night in Kingaroy to enjoy a camp oven dinner under the stars, and raise funds for the LifeFlight Foundation.
The evening, organised by the Kingaroy Men’s Shed, had been rescheduled from February due to the Omicron surge.
This is the second time that the volunteers have organised a fundraising dinner to benefit LifeFlight.
Ralph Clark, from the Men’s Shed, said it had been a fantastic night.
“All the feedback I have received is that everyone enjoyed it. All the feedback about the music (provided by the Sempf Family) was that it was very good,” Ralph said.
“And the food was nice and tasty!
“There were a few light showers but they were not enough to dampen the night.”
Diners included many people who had benefited from RACQ LifeFlight’s life-saving flights and medical transfers plus their family members and supporters.
Tina Torrens, from Torkit Business Solutions, prepared a short video (see below) of interviews with survivors.
“The film by Tina was awesome,” Ralph said.’
“Halfway through, a LifeFlight chopper went straight overhead. It gave me goosebumps. The coincidence and the timing was just phenomenal.”
Profits from the evening will be passed on to the LifeFlight Foundation.
