game of golf, lots of laughs and the chance to win some great
prizes, which were donated by community members and businesses.

the golf day. The night proved popular, with the community coming
together to raise an incredible $1,050.
Overall the events raised $2,000 for Diabetes Queensland.
"We sincerely thank the Warra Hotel, volunteers, sponsors and
the communities of Warra and Jandowae for helping out so generously
with our recent fundraising events. The money raised helps Diabetes
Queensland keep up their good work throughout Queensland,' said
