Party in the Canola Paddock 2022 was everything we’d hope it would be & more.
The blooming yellow canola setting did not disappoint nor did the gorgeous sunset.
Thank you to everyone who attended. Attendees included our Riverina Oils team, partners, growers, customers, and community.
We hosted over 200 guests attended, raising over $15,000 for each of our charities.
We ate beautiful Indigenous-influenced cuisine pulled together by the team from National Indigenous Culinary Institute (NICI), we listened to powerful messages from our two charity beneficiaries Sarah from Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation reminding us of the prevalence of Cancer (1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with Cancer by the time we’re 80) & Steve from Riverina Bluebell who emphasised the importance of speaking up. We were treated to a cleansing dance by Murrumbidgee Blossom Dancers & Aunty Gail returned to give us a Welcome to Country to officially open the event.
While we could’ve done with a little more heat (it’s incredible how cold it gets when the sun goes down), once The Mighty Yak kicked into gear, many of us jumped onto the dance floor to get warm.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this such a special event.
