Murwillumbah Drought Fest is music to farmers' ears
A DROUGHT relief fundraiser will be held in Murwillumbah this weekend featuring a two-day line-up of music at the Murwillumbah Hotel Haven Bar.
In association with not-for-profit charity Drought Angels, the Haven Bar's Drought Fest will raise funds for Aussie farmers and a percentage of profits from food, alcohol and raffle sales will go directly to the charity.
Drought Angels is one of the most trusted and recognised charities helping the those in rural Australia combat the all-consuming battlefront drought can present, often through direct personal contact with farmers.
Punters at the event will have the chance to go into the draw to win a three-hour cruise for 50 guests donated by Mount Warning Tours, including a grazing platter for all guests donated by Have a Ball Catering.
The total package is worth $1400 and tickets will be available at the event for $5 each or three for $10.
