CHRISTMAS might seem like it was just yesterday, but alas it was almost one month ago which means Australia Day is right on the doorstep.
With this in mind several Leeton SunRice Festival Ambassador Quest entrants are holding fundraisers to mark the occasion while raising money for their charities and committees.
Miss Iannelli is hosting a charity bingo event at the Yanco-All Servicemen's Club on Australia Day.
For just $20, participants will receive a bingo book and barbecue lunch.
The event will get underway from noon with lunch and bingo at 1.30pm. With many great prizes on offer, the day is sure to be a crowd pleaser, while raising money for Country Hope at the same time.
Miss Bartram has planned a family fun day at the Leeton and District Bowling Club, with proceeds going to her Can Assist charity. The event will have many Aussie favourites on the itinerary and it all starts at 2pm.
There will be yabby races, a thong-throwing competition, corner-to-corner bowls, coin toss and much more.
If sitting back and relaxing is more your style, Amber Williams will be on hand to provide her musical stylings throughout.
A barbecue will also ensure no one goes hungry.
