The biggest winners from having a successful event on Sunday 14th August which raised a great total of $13500 for our 6 charities which this year are The Pyjama Foundation, FNQ Cerebral Palsy Support Group, The Dr Edward Koch Foundation( money to go towards Youth Suicide Prevention), Redlynch Razorbacks JRL, Trinity Stingers Junior Hockey Club and Studio 21 We Just Dance( youths with disabilities dance group).
