Join Origin fundraiser and help young local sport stars

WATCH the State of Origin in style at Gladstone's only Game Two fundraiser at Kev Broome Basketball Stadium.

Total Party FX and Sassi Furniture have teamed up to raise much-needed funds for the Gladstone Phoenix Power under-16 boys' representative basketball team.

Sassi Furniture general manager Jenelle Knight said the event would assist the team to travel and compete at the top level in the Top of the North Championships and also the Queensland State Championships over the 2013/14 season.

"The under-16 boys are keen to do the absolute best they can this year and with a little extra funding we hope to give them that opportunity to go the next step and compete against the best," she said.

The stadium will be decked out with State of Origin paraphernalia and the entire game will be telecast on the huge 6m x 6m screen.

Drinks and refreshments will be available all night.

Tickets are just $35 and are on sale now at Sassi Furniture on Hanson Rd or available at the door on the night.

Observer readers also have the opportunity to win tickets to the fundraising event.
