Take a Long Lunch invitation to support hospices

THE Eumundi Rotary Long Lunch on Sunday, March 12, will raise funds to support hospices serving our region: Katie Rose Cottage, Cittamani and Hummingbird House.

The lunch will start at 11.30am under the fig trees and in the recently weather-proofed venue at the Original Eumundi Markets with doors open at 11am.

With a theme of "Carnivale", the venue will be brightly decorated with food to match.

Prepared by Eumundi international chefs Andy Dundas (The Figtree) and Ned Nolan (The Bohemian Bungalow), the meal will be three classy courses of gourmet sharing plates and platters based on regional products.

BYO soft drinks and alcohol will allow guests their own choices for refreshment.

A bar of wine, beer, soft drinks and waters will be available and wine glasses will be present on tables.

Celebrity chef Matt Golinski will be giving a cooking demonstration and music will be provided by The Doo Wop Dolls and Associates.

Door and raffle prizes, auctions and a best Carnivale mask prize will keep everybody hopping to further support this fundraising event.

Tickets are $60 per person of which $30 is tax-deductible.

Tables may be booked for six or more people but singles and couples are welcome and will be seated with new friends.

The funds raised will help continue the outstanding work of providing nursing care and support to the terminally ill.

Rotary Club of Eumundi president Greg Molyneux is pleased to again be a part of this important community event.

"Previous Long Lunches have been a great success, raising well over $30,000 to support this valuable work," he said.

"The event this year promises interest and fun in the wonderful Eumundi Markets venue under the trees. It will be great to see everyone, new lunchers and old munchers, to make this year's event even more successful.

"Based on previous success, supporters should make their bookings quickly as we have to limit numbers to 300."

Ticket sales are planned to close on Thursday, March 2.
