The Sunbury Neighbourhood Kitchen is inviting you to its annual Pay It Forward dinner.
Now in its sixth year, the dinner is the kitchen’s biggest fundraising event of the year and kitchen president Neil Williams said almost 200 people are expected to attend.
“We invite people along, they pay $40 and that buys 10 meals for underprivileged people,” he said.
“We’ll have a band playing, silent auctions and raffles to try and raise more money.”
The annual event is a chance for members of the public to enjoy a three-course meal and live entertainment, but also see first-hand the passionate work of the kitchen’s volunteers who one day a week feed people in the community who are finding it tough.
“It’s going strong,” Mr Williams said.
“Last year’s Pay It Forward raised enough funds to serve meals to 150 guests for 16 Mondays.”
Donations of items for the silent auction can be made to the Sunbury Neighbourhood Kitchen.
The Pay It Forward dinner will be on Monday, September 23, at the Sunbury Memorial Hall, Stawell Street from 5.30pm. Tickets: bit.ly/2k3hZtC.
