Glory days of fundraising ‘at steak’

Annual pie challenge brings out the big guns of pastry favourites.

It’s that time of year again as one of the biggest rivalries in Australian sport kicks off, and with it comes a much-loved local fundraiser.

While Queensland and New South Wales go head-to-head for the 2024 State of Origin, Beefy’s Pies will once again kick off its annual fundraiser.

This year, Beefy’s will raise money for the 92.7 Mix FM Give Me 5 appeal to support Sunshine Coast families and their children.

With a $25,000 fundraising goal, Beefy’s is launching its Big Queenslander Pie for the Origin season.

The Big Queenslander is a jumbo take on Beefy’s award-winning signature steak pie.

And $1 from each pie sold will to go to the campaign.

Beefy’s general manager Jason Lyons says with the annual campaign now in its ninth year, he hopes for the biggest pie season yet.

He says with the 92.7 Mix FM Give Me 5 celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2024, the milestone has inspired the Beefy’s fundraising challenge.

“We’ve got a $25,000 fundraising target, and $1 from the sale of every big Queenslander pie will be donated – that’s 25,000 pies,” he says.

“Our factory is gearing up for a big Big Queenslander Pie season.

“This year, Beefy’s is proud to partner with 92.7 Mix FM for their Give Me 5 Appeal, which raises money for family health services on the Sunshine Coast, including medical equipment and extra health services to support kids in times of need. There’s simply no better way to celebrate this State of Origin series and cheer Queensland to victory – whether at home or at a mate’s place – than with a Beefy’s Big Queenslander Pie.”

The fundraiser kicks off on May 31 and will run until late July at all Beefy’s stores.
