For one night only some of Australia’s top restaurateurs and chefs will dish up a fun evening of top-class food, wine and fundraising for DineSmart, our hospitality led initiative that has helped raise and distribute more than $10 million for grassroots homeless charities.
To celebrate its 20th Anniversary DineSmart is bringing together six of its long-standing and loyal supporting partners in Melbourne to raise funds for training and employment programs for vulnerable people. Presented by long-term uniform partner Cargo Crew, who is also celebrating 20 years in business, the night will celebrate the connection between food and community that DineSmart has championed since 2003.
The event will take place on April 12th and it will bring Melbournians a unique opportunity to enjoy signature dishes brought by Alejandro Saravia, Executive Chef at Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters; Nathan Toleman, Founder of The Mulberry Group & Dan Sawansak, Head Chef at Dessous, Nabila Kadri, Head Chef at Supernormal, Sean Kierce, Restaurateur behind Ladro and Simon Denton, the Restaurateur behind Izakaya Den 2029 all in one night. Not enough? You’ll also save on a trip to Sydney with famous restaurateur behind The Apollo, Sam Christie, coming to town too!
Each ticket to the DineSmart 20th Anniversary Fundraising Dinner, presented by Cargo Crew, includes a six-course dinner with pairing beverages, each being chosen and prepared by the renowned restaurateurs listed above. With 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales and live auction that will take place on the night being donated to DineSmart, those attending the event will be helping fund organisations and programs that are giving vulnerable people the tools and confidence to be job-ready.
