Partnerships

The 2020 Mayor's Christmas Cheer Appeal would not be possible this year without the generous in-kind support of our Cairns partners. With much appreciation we would like to recognise the following businesses:

5 STAR CHEFS FOR CHARITY DINNER - SOLD OUT

Cairns' own 5 star hotels have come together for the inaugural 5-Star Chefs for Charity event to raise funds for the annual Mayor's Christmas Cheer Appeal. The culinary expertise of head chefs from Hilton Cairns, Pullman Cairns International, Shangri-La and the Pullman Reef Casino will be plated and presented as part of the four-course dinner event on Saturday 7 November at the Hilton Cairns. Every dollar from ticket sales will be donated to the Cheer Appeal as all services and products have been generously supplied by each hotel as an in-kind donation.
