Going once, going twice, sold! Last Friday night Far North Queensland businessmen and women dug deep into their pockets to raise money for the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation an the annual Power of the Pallets. Who would have thought old rundown wooden pallets could be transformed into pieces of decretive furniture? These creative pieces raised well over $33,000. Well know television star Jamie Durie came along to co-host the night created quite frenzy by sweeting the deal for some lucky auctioneers by taking a seat on their laps raising the punters bid by a few extra $100.

Carly Grossek from table 16 who took home a three piece table set said it was her first time attending the fundraiser. Carly quoted I loved the atmosphere and ambience of the night and how everyone that created something for auction took the time out of their schedule to make something magical. Cairns community really is special and nowhere else comes close. We all work together to create success for one another.
