Following on from the success of last year’s inaugural Mercedes-Benz Oktoberfest, the Team at Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast are hosting their biggest Oktoberfest celebrations ever.
And what’s even better is that this year it’s a fund raiser for the QFES (Queensland Fire Service) and local Rural Fire Service.
At 5pm, Friday 4 October, the German super brand is transforming its huge Forest Glen workshop at into a Bavarian Beer Hall and all friends of the business are donning their Dirndl (lederhosen and Bavarian dress up) especially for the event. QFES representative Ken Stockton and 3 Rural firey volunteers will be in attendance collecting donations and participating in fun games and Oktoberfest activities to raise funds for this essential service.
Marketing Manager Jane Chapman says, “Monday 9 September was a nightmare for many Sunshine Coast residents, including a number of our staff her at DTSC, as aggressive bush fires and strong winds threatened to destroy residences around Perigian Beach.
Thankfully, the combined help from local QFES and the Rural Fire Saving Team managed to successfully coordinate residents, avoiding casualties, and prevent the powerful flames from causing mass damage to homes.”
Jane continues; “After witnessing an impressive, exhausting battle by the fire teams we at DTSC thought we'd like to show our appreciation and admiration to the brave fire fighters and the idea to turn Oktoberfest into a fund-raising event began.”
Fund raising games (including a giant sausage eating contest), gold coin donations, a raffle to win a MB golf bag and the chance to win a bouncy castle for the day are all ways the team will be raising funds on the day.
Dealer Principal Chris Spence Says “We are hoping our valued colleagues, customers and friends of the business will dig deep and help us support this worthwhile cause whilst enjoying our Oktoberfest celebrations. Guests will experience, live entertainment, steins of local craft beer (courtesy of Matt and Sharynne Wilson of award-winning Moffat Beach Brewing Co) and tasty slow cooked meats with a German twist from Beauty and the Beard. Plus, there’s heaps of activities for the kids too with games, bouncy castle, show bags and kranzkys too.”

Across Germany the month of October is synonymous with Oktoberfest, the world's largest Volksfest (beer festival). During this monumental event people trail from around the world and huge amounts of beer are consumed.
