Monster Cent Sale in aid of cancer

A monster crowd packed into Kings Theatre on Saturday afternoon for the annual Monster Cent Sale in aid of the Cancer Council Queensland.

President of the Warwick branch of the Cancer Council Queensland, Kay Wilson, said businesses were extremely generous this year with their donations.

“We were pleased to receive donations no matter how small or large as without the support of the local businesses this event would not be possible,” Mrs Wilson said.

The cent sale has always drawn a good crowd and this year was no exception. Over 200 people turned up for their chance to win one of the many prizes and support the Cancer Council.

The age-old concept of the cent sale is a great way to raise money for charities and provides people with an affordable outing.

Mrs Wilson said over 200 prizes were given away on the day.

“With so many prizes to distribute we were very grateful to eight of the children present who volunteered to run the prizes to the winners for us,” she said.

The event was deemed a huge success.

The $3000 raised throughout the afternoon will be added to Cancer Free Challenge entrant Deanna Schmidt's fundraising total.
