Mark Hughes and Newcastle Knights hoping to raise much-needed funds for Beanies for Brain Cancer at Huntlee

HUNTLEE will host a special Beanies for Brain Cancer event to raise much-needed funds for the Mark Hughes Foundation this weekend.

On Sunday, July 14, between 10am and 1pm, there'll be a petting zoo, airbrush tattoos, jumping castle, sausage sizzle and more at the Land Sales Centre at the Hunter's newest town, located between Greta and Singleton.

Those in attendance can also enter a raffle to win a jersey signed by the entire 2019 Newcastle Knights' NRL team.

Then, from 11.30am, Mark Hughes and four current stars from the Knights will visit to thank the supporters of the fundraising initiatives.

And, everyone who attends the Huntlee event wearing their 2019 Beanie for Brain Cancer will have two special rewards waiting for them:

* They can fill out a free entry form to go into the draw to win six fully-catered tickets to the exclusive Triple M Lounge for the Knights v Wests Tigers game in round 19, the NRL's Beanies for Brain Cancer round. This prize is valued at more than $1300. There will also be six runner-up prizes of family passes to the round 19 fixture; and

* All 2019 beanie wearers will be invited into the Huntlee VIP area at the event to meet Mark Hughes and the four current Newcastle Knights stars where they'll be able to take selfies and get autographs.

So, be sure to grab your 2019 beanie - limited numbers are for sale in the Huntlee office - and head along to show your support for this most worthwhile cause.
