It was smiles all round on Tuesday, 13th October when Queensland’s iconic steak restaurant, the Breakfast Creek Hotel proudly raised $30,000 for Prostate Cancer research at their Annual Charity LED Steer event!
Kicking off the day on the front lawn of the Hotel with a live auction, bidding on the Champion 700kg Charolais x Limousin steer affectionately named, “Biscuit” was fast and eager with a winning bid of $25,000 from Bruce Mathieson Jnr from ALH Group. Spirits were raised at the exceptional result – a great win for the chosen charity of the day, the QHA’s Hotel Care’s initiative supporting Prostate Cancer Research.
Guests then enjoyed a three course charity luncheon and gave generously to the Charity raffle as they dined on the EKKA champion steers purchased by the Breakfast Creek Hotel in August.
Guests included Rugby League legends Chris Johns, Gorden Tallis, Kevin Walters,Gary Balkin and legendary coach Wayne Bennett along side local radio personalities Dobbo, Lutsy, Kerry Lonerghan and event host Campo. Many of the beef industry’s movers and shakers raved over the perfection of the Ekka steers including Terry Nolan, auctioneer Darren Perkins, Ekka dignitaries Angus Adnam and Gary Noller. The sold out luncheon was greatly supported by Hotel regulars and beef industry identities. (Thanks to the BCH for this story)
Palgrove was very proud to be associated with this event, with the charity steer sired by a Palgrove bull. Steaks from Palgrove’s Champion Pen of Six Steers from the 2015 Royal Show (purchased by Nolan Meats and the Breakfast Creek Hotel) received great feedback from the discerning crowd! The gents at the ‘Palgrove table’ by all accounts were quite well-behaved as well.
