THE Jacaranda Festival is only weeks away and the queen candidates are squeezing in their last few fundraising events.

Christie Paterson will host a trivia night on Saturday, October 12, at Limonata on Duke St.

Make a group of eight and brush up on your general knowledge.

Get your tickets from Limonata, Gym Beans Espresso Bar in Grafton Shoppingworld or Ms Paterson herself.

Tickets are $25 per person.

Amy Freeman has two fundraisers on the go to follow her pie-eating competition last weekend.

First up is musical bingo at Roches Family Hotel on October 15.

For just $10 entry, enjoy a fun night with plenty of prizes up for grabs.

The night will kick off at 6.30pm and you can get tickets from Roches or Miss Freeman herself.

On October 17, Miss Freeman will host a fundraiser that is sure to grab the attention of mums throughout the valley.

For $50 you can get a mystery pamper by Platinum Day Spa with a champagne flute in hand.

Kids are welcome too, as there will be activities on the deck for them while mum takes some well-deserved me-time.

The pampering afternoon starts at 2pm and you can get your tickets from Platinum Day Spa or Miss Freeman on 0488 431 120.
