A NANANGO man is opening up his house for a good cause. 

Mark Degoumois, who lives at 22 Alfred St at Nanango, has set up a bar right in his own backyard.

And come tomorrow he will hold an open house event to raise money for Salvation Army South Burnett.

For a gold coin donation people can view murals by Kingaroy artist Vikki Jimenez and experience the atmosphere of Mr Degoumois' backyard bar while enjoying a sausage, soft drink, or a cup of tea or coffee.

The day kicks off at 8am and goes until 4pm, and people are welcome to join Mr Degoumois and Jimenez for breakfast or lunch.
