#VisitQueanbeyan Progressive Dinner Party

On Saturday 14th November the #VisitQueanbeyan Progressive Dinner Party has hosted by three of the newly re-furbished hotels in Queanbeyan. The pubs involved were the Hotel Queanbeyan, the Tourist Hotel and Walshs Hotel.

The event was a fundraiser for the Queanbeyan Treehouse Special Needs Childrens Group


I would like to thanks Ian McNamee and Partners, Queanbeyan for sponsoring the printing of the posters!

I would like to thank Nichole Overall for speaking at the event and for donating her book: Queanbeyan City of Champions

Artwork by Claire Primrose, pitcher by FINK and framed photograph by Hilary Wardhaugh Thanks to Debbie Maree Fashion Boutique, Crawford St Queanbeyan for donating a $150 fashion voucher.

The night was heaps of fun and many people asking if it will happen again next year! I think we shall, as it was truly so much fun!

Thanks to all guests for buying tickets in the raffle. Congratulations to the winners of the auctioned artworks!

In all we have raised about $1700 with the raffle and the auction items and we will be presenting the cheque to the Treehouse tomorrow. I am so happy with the result and to all the pub owners who supported the idea. We think we are tempted to make it a bigger event next year!

Thank-you everyone! ….and to all those in the Canberra region thinking of dining in Queanbeyan I reckon all the guests who highly recommend these venues!
