THIS Friday night Casino residents are being invited to the Clydesdale Motel and Steakbarn to help support a cure for cancer.

This is the night that 24 local men and women who are riding 515kms from Tweed Heads to Broadbeach via regional Queensland and NSW will be visiting and staying to help raise funds to find a cure for cancer.

The trip is known as Tour de Cure's inaugural State of Origin Country Tour.

The team is aiming to raise $100,000 to help fund cancer research, support and prevention projects for regional Australia.

The team will be donating $5000 to the cancer work at St Vincent's Hospital, Lismore and not to be outdone, Clydesdale's owner Barry Reynolds wants to be able to match that figure.

"All the accommodation and meal fees for the riders will be donated back to the hospital as well," he said.

"We are hoping for at least 100 people to come on the night at $35 per head, which we will also donate."

"So people should come to the Clydesdale this Friday for a great night of food, entertainment and a worthy cause."

The night starts at 6pm. Book at www.try booking.com/99781.
