Cut Out Party Success!

Despite the weekend’s weather challenges the Cut Out Party in Proserpine was a huge success.

Close to 200 people gathered at the Proserpine Showgrounds to celebrate the sugar industry which is marking its third year.

This time around the event supported the Royal Flying Doctors Service.

As of the time of going to print, there was no official number announced but organisers are expecting funds raised to be upwards of last years’ $38,000.

“It’s been a real community effort; you don’t know when you’ll need the support of the Royal Flying Doctors Service,” said treasurer Amanda Hadlow.

Amanda showed her gratitude towards the public supporting the event saying she is really appreciative of the support for the sugar industry and public coming together in the community.

A variety of items were auctioned off on the night, most notably being, fire pits, a signed North Queensland Cowboys, accommodation vouchers and local adventure activities which included the Crocodile Safari, Ocean Rafting and sailing experiences.
