Barefoot concert gets brilliant result

RONALD McDonald is on his way to Coffs Harbour thanks to the generosity of Coffs Coast residents who sold out the Concert by the Sea event on Saturday night.

The evening featured performances from pianist David Helfgott and flautist Jane Rutter and raised $17,000 to kickstart the plan to build a Ronald McDonald house here in Coffs.

The barefoot and black tie event had hoped to raise $10,000 so co-organiser Des Taylor from Bellbowrie Motors was 'over the moon' when he learned on Sunday morning the target has been beaten.

“Our Dream of our very own Ronald McDonald House is on the way. Together we can make a difference,” said local Macca's franchisee David Munro.

The young Macca's volunteers gave up their Saturday night to help, as did John Rafferty from the Coffs Ex-Services, as well as Bev Lerm for the silent auction and Travelworld Coffs Harbour.
