Our Ambassadors

Meet our dedicated ambassadors who are leading the charge in the fight against cancer!

Our bright and bubbly Adelady girls, Hayley and Lauren, are back for their eighth year as TLT ambassadors! You may recognise the girls from their weekly TV show on Channel 9 or their magazine and socials celebrating the best of South Australia!

Raising over $435,000 for cancer research in the last seven years with partners G-Fresh, they are continuing to #ForkCancer to stop the heartbreak this terrible disease causes families. 

This year, the duo is getting their flare pants ready for a groovy night dedicated to disco at Sunnybrae Estate!

Get ready to be inspired by our dynamic duo, Rebecca Morse and Marie Kargiotis, the creative minds behind The Style Hosts! Bec, known for her years as an Ambassador for the Hospital Research Foundation and as a beloved media host, teams up with Marie, a sought-after stylist renowned for her expertise and flair.

This year, they're channeling their talents into planning a Longest Table event to #forkcancer, a cause close to their hearts. Bec’s family experienced a loss last year, and Marie volunteers for a charity supporting children in palliative care. Join them for an incredible Longest Table event, enjoy fabulous style tips, and support the fight against cancer!

Brenton is a Longest Table veteran having hosted every year since inception in 2013! 

Having had loved ones touched by cancer, Brenton sees The Longest Table as a great way to give to a good cause whilst having fun and showing off his culinary skills. Brenton's Longest Table has travelled across the world, showcasing the best dishes from his favourite cuisines. In 2022 he took his guests to Modena in Italy!

After working in the corporate world for 30 years, Greer decided to pursue her love of art full-time. Greer loves what she does and has always been generous with her art, donating pieces to raise funds and donating profits from her sales to the causes close to her heart.

Greer’s mum and dad are both survivors of cancer – her dad fought renal cancer and her mum battled lung cancer. Greer believes we can all do something to contribute to the fight against cancer, whether it’s fighting for prevention or a cure.

Kathryn spends most days fighting cancer in her role as Institute Manager for SAiGENCl, the South Australian immunoGENomics Cancer Institute.

Having worked in medical research for over 20 years, Kathryn knows firsthand how the vital funds you raise can help researchers to fight cancer.

Starting small in her first year of hosting, Kathryn has since grown her events to include themes and activities to encourage more donations from her guests.

Introducing Larissa Sewell, who you may recognose from season 15 of Masterchef,  joining us for her first Longest Table in 2024!

Paula Vidale, along with her daughter Mia and her niece, Haylee are passionate about finding a cure for cancer. The trio have been hosting with The Longest Table since 2020 to honour the friends and family they have lost to cancer and their loved ones who are still fighting this heartbreaking disease. 

Team PMH loves to get creative with their fundraising efforts and in 2023 featured a live fashion runway!

Stefan has the cheekiest grin – in fact he’s built and branded his beloved eastern suburbs coffee shop around his signature smile! 

Stefan started his business as a mobile coffee cart to cater for a variety of events in Adelaide, but soon the pandemic hit... and he had to get creative! Stefan opened the doors to Cheeky Grin Coffee in the back shed of his family home in an effort to keep his community connected over a chat, a few laughs and a delicious brew. 

Stefan fought the doom and gloom of the pandemic, and now he’s joining the fight to #ForkCancer for his loved ones who have been impacted by this devastating disease. 

As a seventh-time host, Trish’s battle to #ForkCancer is personal. She was only 46 when she found a lump in her breast, turning her life into a rollercoaster ride of appointments with doctors, nurses, psychologists and countless treatments that helped her to keep fighting. 

Trish was lucky to have a targeted therapy available to her that saved her life. Thanks to researchers working hard in their labs we have access to treatments like Trish’s, but we still need more – and Trish will keep fighting to #ForkCancer until we do!

Hello Hosts!

In life, the unexpected can strike at any moment.

Greer Tappert, an ambassador for The Longest Table, 
knows this all too well, as both her parents battled against cancer and are now cancer free.

Driven by this gratitude and a desire to give back, Greer became a host and ambassador for The Longest Table in 2023. She hosted a paint and sip event in Norwood, a unique and creative way to bring people together in support of cancer research. 

Join Greer and countless others – become a host for The Longest Table and help paint a brighter tomorrow.
