Ekka Strawberry Sundae Drive
After a series of strawberry scares, ABC Radio Brisbane and The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation (TPCHF) will join forces to support strawberry farmers the sweetest way they know how – with an Ekka strawberry sundae drive in the heart of The City on Wednesday 26 September.
Launching from King George Square at 6:15 am, the Breakfast program with Craig Zonca and Loretta Ryan will broadcast live till 10:00 am, while TPCHF ‘scooper hero’ volunteers and some special guests, dish out the delectable desserts made famous at the Royal Exhibition.
The sundaes made with strawberries from Queensland farmers will be for sale throughout the day till 6:30 pm, so if you didn’t get your fix at the Ekka in August, you’ll get another bite at the berry!
Emma Griffiths, Kat Feeney and Steve Austin will also broadcast live from the Square to bring Brisbane updates on the funds raised for our farmers. All profits from the day will go to the Strawberry Growers Association to distribute where needed most.
