Big night ahead for Field of Dreams

Ninety staff, volunteers and clients of some of North Queensland’s hardest working community support organisations will be treated to a special night-out when the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys take to the field against the Eels at 1300SMILES Stadium this Monday night.

Thanks to the generosity and support of the Townsville City Council and Southern Cross Austereo for the Cowboys Field of Dreams initiative, for those attending, the night will be a celebration of their organisations and their personal achievements, contributions and growth as individuals.

“The Mental Illness Fellowship North Queensland, the Smith Family, the Endeavour Foundation and the Cootharinga Parent Connect program have each been donated game tickets by our sponsors to enable their participants and staff to relax and spend some extra social time together,” Fiona Pelling, Cowboys general manager community said. 

Since it started, the Cowboys Field of Dreams program has given over 2,500 individuals in the community the opportunity to attend a Cowboys game to watch their heroes live in action at 1300SMILES Stadium.

“Each game day, one of our Field of Dreams sponsors donates 30 home game tickets to a charity in recognition of their valuable contributions to our local community.  League Club’s generous support for the program means that everyone attending the game will get to learn about the Mental Illness Fellowship North Queensland, the Smith Family, Cootharinga Parent Connect program and the Endeavour Foundation,”  Fiona said.
