Fine food fundraiser
People, Plates and Places and Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (SCARS) are holding a fundraising lunch to celebrate SCARS’ 40th birthday.
SCARS is the Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (Sippy Creek Animal Refuge Society Inc), which was established in 1979. The Refuge is an independent, non-profit, charitable organisation and has a non-euthanasia policy. They also run education programmes for the community on responsible animal ownership.
Over the last 40 years, SCARS has saved more than 40,000 dogs and cats from a terrible fate. The Refuge is managed by an unpaid, elected committee, and run by a small staffing compliment and a large dedicated group of volunteers.
The Refuge operates from a 1.08 hectare site at Sippy Creek Road, Tanawha and accepts cats and dogs from the Sunshine Coast Council Pound after owners cannot be traced, and from private surrenders.
People, Plates and Places are known for hosting a relaxed, outdoor communal dining experience set on a long table in unique settings. You could be nestled in a garden, perched on a mountain range or reclining in the vineyards of a winery.
They bring together local producers, local ingredients and local chefs, to create memorable and high quality five-course meals with matching wines.
Anything could be on the menu from grass-fed beef or organic free-range chicken, to gourmet tomatoes and sweet mangoes – the plates are brought to the places, where possible, where the food is grown for this sensory and unique experience.
People, Plates and Places and Paws for a Cause long table lunch will be held in Montville on the March 23, at 1pm.
Bookings are essential as this is a ticketed event. Profits for this event will go to SCARS to continue its good work. Tickets are $150 per guest and includes four courses with wine. To book visit: peopleplatesplaces.com.au
