Businesses come together for a cause
THE wider community has benefited from a group of local business owners who banded together at Yungaburra's Little Eden restaurant recently for the Wild River
Mountain Distillery rum release.
Lucky prize winners on the day were Sasha Bucknell, who won two nights at Treetops Sanctuary, Malanda, from property owner, Jo Murphy and Briana Eaton who won gift packs from Wild River Mountain Distillery owner, Wes Marks (back) and Crater Mountain Coffee owner Lucy Stocker and a dinner for two from Little Eden.
Not only did the event
promote local products and
services and raise awareness
of the Tablelands as a
visitor destination, it raised
much needed money for crisis
and emergency support
agency, the Women's Centre
Guests travelled from as
far as Mareeba, Cairns, Einasleigh
and even Brisbane to
attend a food and gin pairing
afternoon, in an elegant, yet
relaxed environment, complete
