ON Thursday, May 7, Australia’s biggest dinner party will bring together more than 1,800 charity-minded people across 150 of Australia’s finest restaurants in five cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra: www.supperclub.com.au.
The Camp Quality Supper Club promises an evening of luxury, fine food and surprises to support children living with cancer and their families.
Guests across the country will feast on a bespoke a la carte menu matched with award-winning wines from Robert Oatley Wines and Piper-Heidsieck. Australia’s finest restaurants are participating, including ARIA (Sydney), Sage (Canberra), Morris Jones (Melbourne), Bucci (Brisbane) and Mosmans Restaurant (Perth).
Following dinner, guests will be taken in luxury Lexus car transfers to the exclusive secret after-party venue – decked out in the full theme – to continue the festivities with live entertainment, dancing and drinks.
Supper Club Ambassador Kirstie Clements, author and former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue said: “I attended Supper Club in 2014 and wow – what an event. The evening is full of surprises, amazing attention to detail, unique quirks, a sashay of glamour and of course a large dose of laughter – the best medicine.
“This year I went out to one of Camp Quality’s Fun Day to see first-hand how the money raised from Supper Club is spent. These are families whose lives have been turned upside down. Kids have lost whole chunks of their childhood to cancer, treatment, tests and hospitals.
“On this day – where we went whale watching – the families could embrace normality again. The children could just be kids again. They squealed with delight as we saw jumping dolphins. I was inspired by their bravery and positivity after such trauma. We literally had a whale of a time.”
Susan Fleming, Camp Quality’s Event Manager, said: “Whether you’re attending with friends or entertaining clients and colleagues, this spectacular evening is not to be missed. The attention to detail and the surprises throughout the evening are what makes this event different from other charity fundraisers.
“Every dollar raised will help to transform the life of a child living with cancer in Australia. Our programs are devised to take them from a place of trauma and stress to one of optimism and strength. We do that by helping the whole family, so the child’s support network is resilient and robust.”
The theme for this year’s event is ‘The Art of Dining’ – attendees will be invited to experience a fusion of palettes to help paint a better life for children living with cancer.
Ambassadors for this year’s event so far include Kirstie Clements and Matthew Butcher, Executive Chef, Morris Jones.
