Steggles sponsors Tamworth’s Country Music Festival

Steggles sponsors Tamworth’s Country Music Festival
Steggles will be an integral part of this year’s 42nd annual Tamworth Country Music Festival through a community-based sponsorship focused on local charities and families.

 

Steggles National Brand Manager Laurel Brown said as major employers within the local region, the staff are excited to be part of Tamworth’s most-loved annual event.


“We’re hosting the Steggles Family Zone, Turkey Burger Bar, and a free Steggles family movie night to encourage families to come along to the festival,” Brown said.


“More Australians are choosing to cook with fresh turkey all year round, so our focus is on educating home cooks about the health benefits and ease of using turkey as a substitute for other proteins. We will continue to introduce familiar cuts to the Steggles Turkey Shortcuts range, such as mince and breast fillets to help consumers choose turkey as a healthy alternative,” Brown said.


Steggles is aiming to raise more than $10,000 throughout the festival for its two local Charity Nest charities, Ronald McDonald House Tamworth and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service Tamworth base.


“In 2013, Steggles donated more than $78,000 to local charity partners, and nationally the Steggles Roosters Charity Nest raised more than $1 million for 13 charities,” Brown said.


Steggles has today launched a hashtag competition to win a double pass to attend the Country Music Awards and Official After Party. To enter, festival goers are to upload a picture of a Tamworth ‘Steggler’ moment with #TamworthSteggler to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.


The Steggles Turkey Shortcuts range can be found nationally in Coles supermarkets (excluding WA). For more information on the Steggles Charity Nest or Steggles products, visit www.steggles.com.au.
