The Longest Lunch...

We attended a 'Longest Lunch' fundraiser for the Royal Flying Doctor Service yesterday. The theme for the lunch, provided by a team of local chefs from the region, was Foraged and Found.
A small amount of goods were auctioned and $2,700 raised from those plus the lunch tickets so it was a very successful fundraiser and will now be an annual event on the Coonawarra calendar.
