A little bit fancy Degustation

Karen Buenger

Event Date: 06-11-21

I've Raised:
$5,803
My Goal:
$6,000
97%

Why am I doing this?

Like so many people, my life was touched by cancer from a very young age.

Our table will HONOUR & REMEMBER the people taken too soon, people like my best friend Anita from high school who passed in her teens;  a loving father of a friend who missed the birth of his grandchildren; a young mum in her 20's who will miss seeing her young daughter grow up; and the 5 year old boy whose life had just begun.  Just a few of so many.

Our dinner will CELEBRATE the loved ones who we're grateful are still here because of the years of research already done, the people in remission like my mum. 

Our table will #FORK CANCER for the people who are still fighting their battle.

How can you help?
Save a spot and join us - Due to covid, our plans have had to change.  We hosted a spectacular 12 course Australiana degustation dinner with 10 of our guests on the 14/08/21.

For the other guests who were unable to join us, we have planned something pretty special on our new date of the 06/11/2021.  

Our degustation menu will take on a summery, finger food twist, and we will be serving cocktails on our back deck for all to enjoy at our Little Bit Fancy - Garden Cocktail party.

If you are interesting in being involved with our new date, we would love for you to come and contribute what you're best at (signature dish/es, setting up/cleaning up, decorations, etc) to create a beautiful community event that raises money for this worthy cause and feeds our souls as well as our bodies.  

To save a spot we ask that you make (at least) a $40 donation (and message me to let me know you are booking a spot)! 

Other ways to support - Make a donation
Donate cash, wine, items to raffle, your time (help set up, offer to do the dishes, serve food and drinks etc), prepare a canapé dish for our cocktail party,  help dress our tables, donate flowers, products or services from your business as a prize for the night.
