Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Live Music, A Cuppa And Lucky Door Prizes

Mackay seniors will be treated to live music, complimentary tea and coffee, and a share in over 20 lucky door prizes when they attend the upcoming Morning Melodies performance, Blue Bayou, on Friday 24 March at the MECC.

To celebrate Easter, the MECC are giving away 19 chocolate themed baskets as lucky door prizes, in addition to the lucky door prizes donated by Walkerston Guardian Pharmacy and Whitsunday Biscuit Factory.

Manager of MECC & Events Andrew Bobeldyk said Easter basket giveaways are an annual inclusion in the MECC’s program.

“Each year we gift an Easter basket to one lucky audience member. Usually, the prize is offered through our Facebook page via a ‘like’ and ‘share’ competition,” Mr Bobeldyk said.

“This year the team are making our Morning Melodies performance that little bit sweeter, by adding these chocolate giveaways to the lucky door prize list,” he continued.

The lucky door prizes will be drawn following the performance of Blue Bayou, a tribute of great country-pop artists, including songs by Glen Campbell, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash.

“This show will transport audiences back to the golden age of country-pop music. Singalong to the music heard on the radio in the 60s and 70s.”

Audiences are reminded of the complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits before the show, with thanks to sponsor, the Friends of the MECC. With tickets starting at just $15 each, the Friends of the MECC’s Morning Melodies is an affordable and enjoyable day out for Mackay locals.
