CANBERRA restaurants are getting behind the Camp Quality Supper Club event by donating a complete dining experience for a table of 12 on May 24, to raise money for children living with cancer, and their families.
This will be Soju Girl’s first Supper Club – and for co-owner and head chef Derek Brown, the cause hits close to home.
His wife’s nephew passed away from cancer more than seven years ago, and deeply affected his family.
“I’ve got young children as well,” he said.
“We’re always up for helping local organisations and this has been our first opportunity to get involved.”
Soju Girl co-owner and manager Grant Macara says he hopes guests attending the restaurant’s dinner will enjoy their shared eating philosophy.
Last year, the Supper Club event raised $63,110 in Canberra with $1million raised across Australia.
This year there are 21 restaurants involved including, Dieci e Mezzo, Alto, Public Bar, Urban Pantry and Cream.
And, for the first time, the Brumbies will offer an exclusive dinner for 20 at their club rooms.
Guests who have purchased any of the Supper Club tables, will then be chauffeured by Lexus to a secret location for a masquerade ball.
Camp Quality has been supporting children living with cancer and their families since 1983, and runs programs in performance and education, hospital, family assistance and recreation.
