An Evening with Brad Hogg, 30 May 2024
Posted 10 May 2024 An Evening with Brad Hogg, 30 May 2024

Australian cricketing legend Brad Hogg will join members of the local farming and business community in Moora for a special sundowner event that’s being held on Thursday 30th May 2024. As Grain Producers Australia’s (GPA) National Mental Health Ambassador, Brad’s visit is being timed to coincide with the end of this year’s seeding program for many local farmers and community members. The Moora Chamber of Commerce is hosting the sundowner along with GPA, to give local community members an opportunity to support each other in this challenging period. Chair, Julie Walsh, said the local community was very strong and resilient, and having Brad speak at the sundowner offers a great opportunity to take a break from work and catch up, to connect and de-stress, after a busy time.
