The Big City Barbecue is now in its eighth year and thanks to the amazing support from the founding partners, Riparian Plaza, Wilson HTM Investment Group and Brisbane City Council, the Trust has benefitted from donations of over $220000 as a result of the event.
It was a beautiful day on Friday 20 September 2013 for the Big City BBQ which was reflected in the number of people that came out to enjoy the weather as well as support the deserving charities. Large numbers of workers and local residents enjoyed a barbie lunch and the chance to win fabulous raffle prizes while watching the Grease cast members perform at their only public appearance in Brisbane.
The day is a great opportunity for the corporate community to celebrate, engage and provide support to local charities with Foodbank, DRUG-ARM Australasia and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust gratefully sharing in the proceeds of the event.
This year's event was a great success with the crowd entertained by His Merry Men as seen at the Brisbane Festival and wowed by a special public performance by the cast of Grease
