In fact there were 12,000 good reasons to cheer as $12,000 was raised to go towards the work of Hagar International, rescuing girls from child slavery.
“One could say you aren’t a true Queenslander if you don’t get just a little involved in the excitement of the State of Origin and the inevitable series defeat of NSW – well, almost always,” said HumeRidge communications Pastor Natalie Roy.
“At HumeRidge, we don’t just get excited about watching a great game, we come together for the purposes of helping transform the lives of young girls who are rescued from child slavery and in doing so honour our Lord, Jesus Christ, by caring for those who can’t care for themselves.”
“This year we enjoyed a great night of footy and we raised over $12,000. This will see 5 girls sponsored through Hagar. They will have a safe home, go to school and be assisted in overcoming the trauma of child slavery,” said Natalie.
“One night, five lives transformed. Now that’s something to truly celebrate!”
