The Caring and Kindness Event is a long table luncheon with all the trimmings, including a delectable four-course meal; wine, champagne and beer; music by Karin Page of China Doll; and auction items from talented artists and local Perth businesses.
With a creative flair given to the event, the wine cellar of the Young George in East Fremantle was transformed (with a little help from Floral Army
) into a space for showcasing stunning auction items, enjoying the start to summer of the company of friends, and donating to a very worthy cause.
This is just the start for CAKE as we intend to make it an annual initiative to give to a grass roots charity in need of our help. This year all of our efforts and your generosity will go to the NIFON orphanage
of Nepal which was recently rocked by the earthquake that devastated the region. Losing their home and now struggling with the political unrest in the region, the $5106 raised through the generosity of our supporters and guests this year, will help the orphanage to meet its basic needs - food, warmth, shelter, and education.
Among the auction items generously donated to help us to achieve our goal were large-scale oil paintings from Britt Dunbar, artists prints from the highly coveted Perth Photographer Stef King
, and customised show-stopping jewellery from Michelle Noble
. Don't forget the silent auction too where we have items from Northern Star
, WACA, Val Morgan, West Oz Kiteboarding
and Remede Wellness
to name but a few.
Presented by our team at Breadbox Marketing
, CAKE attracted a crowd of young and upcoming business owners, creative individuals, and those who enjoyed kicking work to the curb early on a Friday afternoon for a good cause.
A huge thank you and shout-out to the generous sponsors (Fleetspec Hire, A Team Printing, Michelle Noble, Britt Dunbar, Floral Army, Stef King, West Oz Kiteboarding, You Plate It, Ginger and Lucille, Brown Photography, WACCA, Remede Wellness, Little Creatures, George St Bistro, Adler and Co, Boundless Apareal, Manusa Orgnic Day Spa, Hubble and Duke, Northern Star Ocean Products and Val Morgan) for without whom we would not be able to make CAKE.
We'll see you again in 2017, for another slice.
