Queensland charity events 2014

A great way to support a charity is to attend one of their events.  In Queensland there are lots of charities who host fantastic events for you to be part of… so dust off your penguin suit or fabulous frock, grab some friends, book a ticket (or table) to one of the Queensland charity events below and make a difference!

In chronological order… (please leave me the details a comment below if I have missed any, and I will happily add it to the list.  I suspect this list will grow over the next couple of months, so please check back throughout the year)
