The last Friday in July each year sees the gathering at Crown Palladium in Melbourne of well known Australians from all walks of life; entertainment, business, sport, media, and leisure industry leaders. Wonderful people coming together in a stunning space for an amazing lunch supporting a very special cause.
For this extraordinary lunch everything except staff and some production logistics are 100% donated. So every glass of French Champagne, premium wine, culinary delight, mystery envelope prize, premium raffle prize, auction lot, entertainment performance and the legendary Million Dollar Lunch Bar have all been generously donated to help raise more than $1 million for kids with cancer.
Organized by the KOALA Foundation, the event has become a highly anticipated part of Melbourne’s social calendar. Formed in 1992 as the Kids Oncology and Leukaemia Action group, the KOALA Foundation is run by parents and carers of children who are being, or have been treated for cancer.
Over the last four years, the featured chefs have included some of the best in the world, from Jacques Reymond to Nobu. Entertainers have included a host of stars from Olivia Newton-John to Ben Elton, Vanessa Amorosi to Kate Ceberano.
Don’t miss your exclusive chance to be a part of this extraordinary lunch and to make a very real difference for kids with cancer. Bookings are now being taken for The 2009 Million Dollar Lunch to be held on 31 July 2009. To find out more, click here.
