A great day out at the races and a whole lot of fund raising.

The 2015 City2Bush injected more than $100 000 into drought-affected communities in Queensland, with four Country Education Foundation committees named amongst the beneficiaries.

City2Bush major sponsor UBET were instrumental in organising the Longreach race meet and getting the fund raising to the six-figure mark.

The City2Bush initiative shines a light on the struggles endured by rural Australia. It also provides an opportunity for business leaders and donors to see firsthand where their contributions can help the most.
