Gina Rinehart to Support Christmas Light Competition

In continued support for South Burnett, Mrs Gina Rinehart is once again sponsoring the South Burnett Community Christmas Light Competition for 2016.

In 2015, South Burnett residents, farmers and local businesses showed overwhelming support towards Mrs Gina Rinehart's interest in our region and our unique country style.  In appreciation and in addition to other community assistance, Mrs Gina Rinehart sponsored last year's Christmas Lights competition through Hancock Prospecting and the Georgina Hope Foundation, which included some fantastic prizes comprising of a $15 000 and $10 000 trip to Singapore – and substantial cash prizes provided by Hancock prospecting. 

Council received confirmation from Mrs Gina Rinehart that Hancock Prospecting and the Georgina Hope Foundation would again be sponsoring this year's competition with the same prizes.

"I am excited to announce that Mrs Gina Rinehart would once again be sponsoring the 2016 Competition." said Mayor Keith Campbell. "It is not yet known if Mrs Rinehart will visit our community during the Christmas lights competition, but she greatly enjoyed visiting last year and congratulated those she visited for the wonderful effort they had put in. The number of entries last year and the friendly competition generated some truly beautiful displays, which made it very hard for our judges to decide on the winners"
