The 16th annual Chefs’ Long Table Charity Lunch devoured all expectations at the weekend when the auction alone raised more than $50,000 for the event’s beneficiaries.

Five hundred people flocked to the Pat Usher Foreshore on Sunday for the community favourite event and were treated to a delicious eight-course banquet prepared by some of the State’s most renowned chefs, all of which expressed an interest in returning for next year’s event.

“The food was sensational, all of the chefs excelled themselves,” event chairman David Dorsett-Lynn said.

“It was one of the best lunches of the past 15 years,”

Guests arrived to an updated layout this year, one that encouraged more socialising and mingling before the event got under way at 1pm which gained positive feedback, according to Mr Dorsett-Lynn.

“It was a record auction with more than $50,000 raised which is just fantastic,” he said.

“The auctioneer was as funny as a cart-load of monkeys so even if you weren’t bidding, you still got a pretty good laugh out of it.”
