Diddillibah resident, Michael Trehy, is the winner of a hot air balloon experience with Sunshine Coast Ballooning.

The teams at RE/MAX Hinterland, RE/MAX Property Sales and RE/MAX First gave the Sunshine Coast community the chance to win a scenic flight for two in the recently launched RE/MAX hot air balloon via a print and social media competition.

The lucky winner was drawn randomly from almost 100 entries.

Sunshine Coast Ballooning and RE/MAX Australia introduced the Sunshine Coast RE/MAX hot air balloon with 92.7Mix FM’s Mark and Caroline at Sunshine Coast Stadium on 1st September.

Their live their breakfast show broadcast included the on-radio auction of a flight for two in the brand-new balloon.

Well-known husband and wife Sunshine Coast identities, Mark Tabone and Lisa Curry, called in a competitive and generous bid of $1200, which went to RE/MAX Australia’s charity partner, Make-A-Wish® Australia.

92.7Mix FM’s will auction a further four double tickets during the breakfast show in the lead up to Christmas, with all proceeds going to Make-A-Wish Australia.

RE/MAX has the largest balloon fleet in the world and the Sunshine Coast balloon is its second in Australia, with the other based on the Gold Coast.

“It’s exciting to have the RE/MAX hot air balloon giving charter flight experiences in the Sunshine Coast region, in the skies over Maleny to Caloundra, Eumundi to Noosa, and everywhere between,” said RE/MAX Australia managing director, Joel Davoren.
