Be the difference this Pie of Origin

Queensland bakery Beefy’s has proudly pulled on the maroon jersey again, ready to kick off Pie of Origin for another year in 2023.
“NSW’s Glenorie Bakery had put out the challenge, and we’d responded by saying yes,” said Beefy’s Mark Hobbs.
“That means it’s state against state as we out-fundraise one another and help the sick kids for our state-wide children’s hospitals.”
“There can only be one winner, and I’m backing Queensland!”
Footy legend and Pie of Origin ambassador Kerrod Walters is backing Queensland too.
“We claimed the trophy last year and I know we’ve got another win in us,” said Kerrod.
“C’mon Queensland. All you need to do is get into Beefy’s and make it a Big Queenslander Pie – it’s that easy!”
Beefy’s will donate $1 from every Big Queenslander Pie sold during the Pie of Origin series directly to the Children’s Hospital Foundation and overall fundraising tally.
“The Big Queenslander Pie is a limited-edition pie just for this contest,” explained Mark.
“It’s bigger than our traditional lunch size pie, and it’s crammed with our award-winning, melt-in-your-mouth signature steak pie filling.”
2023 marks the eighth year that Beefy’s has been raising funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“Every year, our success comes back to the generous support of our loyal customers,” said Mark.
“During the time we’ve been involved in Pie of Origin, they’ve helped us raise almost $125,000 to help sick kids across the state. No matter how you look at that, it’s been a mighty Queensland effort.”
“We can’t thank our customers enough.”
Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO, Lyndsey Rice is thrilled to see the return of Pie of Origin, to help make a difference in the lives of kids across the state.
“Every dollar raised through this year’s Pie of Origin plays a vital role in helping Queensland’s sickest kids and their families through the toughest of times – we’re incredibly humbled to have the support of the Beefy’s community.”
This year, Beefy’s and their customers will raise funds for cutting-edge equipment, vital research and on-the-ground support for sick and injured kids, just like Harley.
Harley was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome – one of the rarest and most severe heart defects. At two years old, Harley has already undergone two open-heart surgeries for his condition.
To help kids like Harley, simply make it a Beefy’s Big Queenslander Pie every time you’re in store to support the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
You have until the whistle blows to signal the end of the State of Origin Game 3 on July 12 to get your hands on one, and be the difference every kid deserves.
