With last night’s kick off for the 2023 State of Origin competition, a Sunshine Coast bakery is braced for a competition of its own – and all for a good cause.
Beefy’s has proudly pulled on the maroon again, challenging NSW’s Glenorie Bakery for the annual Pie of Origin award.
It will be state against state to raise the most funds for cutting-edge equipment, vital research and on-the-ground support for sick and injured children.
2023 marks the eighth year that Beefy’s has raised funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“Every year, our success comes back to the generous support of our loyal customers,” Beefy’s managing director Mark Hobbs says.
“During the time we’ve been involved in Pie of Origin, they’ve helped us raise almost $125,000 to help sick kids across the state.
“No matter how you look at that, it’s been a mighty Queensland effort.”
Beefy’s will donate $1 from every limited-edition Big Queenslander Pie sold during the Pie of Origin series to the overall fundraising tally.
The fundraiser will run until July 12.
