Wright’s Fruit Barn entered and won a hotly contested industry competition run by the members of YLFS yourlocalfruitshop.com.au. The prize that Wright’s Fruit Barn won is a two-hour in-store promotion featuring Australian professional rugby league footballer, premiership winning Brisbane Broncos star and Queensland State of Origin representative, Sam Thaiday.
The event will be held on-site at Wright’s Fruit Barn next Tuesday, July 10 between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. Owner of Wright’s Fruit Barn Jakie Wust said she is excited by the prospect of Sam’s visit. “Sam has been the face of YLFS, promoting the benefits of shopping at local fruit shops to get the best possible value and choice of local, seasonal fresh produce,” she said. Jackie said they plan to have a Sam “Look-a-Like” competition, cooking demonstration by Sam of his famous veggie burger, selfie opportunities with Sam, and of course lots of other fun stuff happening. “This will be a great event and we hope that heaps of Bribie Islanders turn up to enjoy Sam’s time on Bribie and make him feel welcome.”
