The Fremantle Long Table Dinner is back for another year with tickets for the popular fundraiser went on sale at 9:00am September 7.
In it’s fifth year, the event is moving from High Street to Kings Square, another typically Fremantle setting in the hopes of creating a different experience.
National Hotel owner, Karl Bullers, started the event in 2016 and is pleased they’re able to continue this year despite Covid-19 restrictions.
“Back in March we had no plans to do it, but now that things are a little bit better we thought we should get on with it and raise some money for a good cause,” Mr Bullers said.
“It’s grown bigger and bigger every year; last year we sold out in four hours, but this year we’re halving the number of tickets trying to manage it within Covid-19 restrictions,”
“We’re only doing 600 tickets this year so we anticipate a very quick sell of tickets on Monday Morning,”
Organised by the National Hotel and St Patrick’s Community Support Centre, funds raised will go towards St Patrick’s and the homeless over the festive period.
The three course dinner will be accompanied by some of the state’s best wines and local craft beers from Little Creatures, Leeuwin Estate, Ferngrove Estate and Capel Vale Wines.
Numerous high profile chefs will be featured, including TV’s Anna Gare, Kailis Fish Market Cafe head def Pete Manifis, Bread in Common’s Scott Branninigan, Manuka Woodfire Kitchen’s Kenny McHardy and Melissa Palinkas from Young George and Ethos.
Mr Bullers said ticket holders will also be treated to an evening of entertainment, provided by some of Fremantle’s most incredible musicians and performers.
St Patrick’s Community Support Centre Chief Executive Officer, Michael Piu, said 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone and is looking forward to bringing the Fremantle community together through this year’s event.
“The Fremantle Long Table Dinner has played a key role in strengthening the community over the past five years, and is absolutely pivotal in enabling St Patrick’s to continue to providing wrap-around services for people who are struggling,”
“We rely heavily on the kindness and generosity of the Fremantle community to ensure we can reach everyone who needs support,” Mr Piu said.
The Fremantle Long Table Dinner will take place at 7pm on Saturday November 28, with tickets available from Sticky Tickets from 9am Monday September 7.
