Christmas in July

Serena Russo, and 40 of her nearest and dearest, will be forking cancer on Saturday 27 July by celebrating Christmas in July.

Serena is planning a Christmas feast, with a menu inspired by all the warm and wintery foods sometimes missed at an Aussie summer Christmas party.

“There will be roast meat and plenty of sides, fruit cake, pudding, gingerbread, mince pies and all our favourite festive treats.

“We will decorate our home with a forest of Christmas trees, lots of lights and a courtyard filled with snow to create a Winter Wonderland.

To raise funds, Serena will be asking everyone who attends to donate as much as they want when they RSVP and encouraging people to donate through the Facebook event page for a chance to win a prize. On the night there will be hampers available in a raffle, silent auction items and lots more games everyone can participate in for a gold coin donation.

“We encourage people to raid their coin stashes before coming!”

Serena decided to sign up to host a Longest Table this year to help save lives.

“We’ve all lost loved ones to cancer, and it would be lovely if one day that wasn’t the case.

“Hosting a Longest Table dinner is a great way to bring people together and raise funds for medical research, and we’re glad to be able to help in this way.”
