Northern Rivers Food hold a Golf Day each year to raise money for their organisation. Due to COVID-19 implications, Northern Rivers Food were not going to hold the event this year, until Barefruit offered to organise it. The goal was to organise the event, working with local food businesses and attract around 40 – 50 players. This was a fantastic opportunity to connect with another industry and build relationships for future business.
With a six-week lead time, the priority was to find a venue and to contact local food businesses to ask if they wanted to sponsor and/ or contribute to the day. Byron Bay Golf Club agreed to hold the event and provide catering for late lunch and Barefruit became the major sponsor of the event. Northern Rivers Food wanted to provide ‘goody bags’ for each player and award prizes at the end of the day. Organising this involved reaching out to local food businesses and collecting donations of product. Over 15 companies donated product for the goody bags and prizes.
Barefruit was also involved in advising how to promote the event as well as designing a digital invitation and social media content. Stone and Wood sponsored the event with a ‘Bar on the Green’ at hole 18. A keg was set up under a marque, accompanied by baguettes from The Bread Social and cured meats from Salumi for players to enjoy.
We were particularly proud of our Barefruit Marketing lunch bag which was part of the goody bag. We included an orange, flyer, branded pen and orange scorer in a brown lunch bag, sealed with a Barefruit sticker.

Eight weeks out from the launch date, Barefruit was engaged by Kate Kempshall, CEO of North Coast Community College (NCCC) to assist with the PR and Event Management of the official opening of North Coast Community College Primary Industries Training Facility - a collaboration between NCCC and the Department of Primary Industries. The aim was to manufacture as much free publicity as we could about the new training centre and its new qualifications, as well as help organise an opening event to attract dignitaries, community guests and the media.
The team at Barefruit worked closely with Kate and her team at NCCC, as well as the Department of Primary Industries on a part-pro bono basis, to produce a Press Release about the uniqueness and future potential of the training centre and qualifications for the local community and beyond. In the lead up to the official opening date, Barefruit played a major role in the organisation of the event, including managing invitations and RSVPs, catering, website updates, speech writing and more! Barefruit were also very much involved in creating email invitations, a course booklet and an illustrated map of the training facility. In the current climate of COVID-19, special consideration was taken in planning an event that would be safe for attendees.
The press release written by Barefruit was picked up by The Northern Star, the Ballina Advocate, ABC North Coast and NBN News, who all published stories about NCCC Primary Industries Training Centre. Paradise FM held a radio interview with Kate the day before the event too. The event was a great success, with media representatives from most local publications and television channels present, as well as dignitaries and special guests. Through this initial project, NCCC has awarded Barefruit as their marketing agency n a retainer basis, which is very exciting for the whole team.
