Eat Street 2011 - Funny name, serious stuff. This year Chisholm & Gamon will be supporting Eat Street, held on the 21st of June at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins. Now in its fifth year, Eat Street is a premier gourmet event presented by Victoria’s best foodies from local favorite wineries and restaurants.
For the third year in a row, the Australian Childhood Foundation has been chosen as the beneficiary of funds raised from Eat Street. Child abuse is unfortunately one of our society’s most prevalent problems, with 317,526 cases reported in 2008. The most at-risk group of children are infants, suffering the largest number of cases of abuse and neglect. This neglect of our children has a direct effect on our society both immediately and in the long run, with abused children more likely to become suicidal adults with drug and alcohol dependencies. The Australian Childhood Foundation seeks to address this issue in our community, and Eat Street is one of their key fundraisers for the year.
Chisholm & Gamon will be calling the charity auction of the evening, and all attendees will be in the running to win luxurious prizes including a lunch with Eric Bana , a trip overseas and fashion from local designers (last year included Mimco, LifewithBird, Richard Nylon and Kirrily Johnston). Of course, feasting is also involved with Melbourne’s premiere restaurants setting up mini-marquees offering tastes of their unique menus. The list of luminaries include Maha Bar & Grill, The Point, No35, The Press Club, Fifteen, Mezzo, Il Bacaro, Taxi and Verge.
We encourage you to support this event, with details to book below. Bring your family, friends and clients – it will be a wonderful night to enjoy whilst raising funds for the Australian Childhood Foundation.
