MasterChef Simon Gault cooks up a unique fundraiser
On 13, 14 and 20 November 2011, parsley in your teeth will be socially acceptable as Aucklanders venture into a unique sensory experience for charity.
Three blind dining events are being held at the five-star Auckland waterfront restaurant Euro to raise money for cbm, an international aid organisation dedicated to working with persons with disabilities in the world’s poorest countries.
Darren Ward, cbm National Director, says “Being without sight for the evening will give people a unique perspective on what it is like to live with a life-altering disability.”
Euro is owned by the acclaimed New Zealand chef Simon Gault.
Mr Gault says “I am honoured to be able to support cbm and bring awareness to their work such as their Child Sponsorship programmes. It’s a fantastic charity and I know Auckland will get behind this worthwhile and exciting event. ”
Diners will be blind folded on entry to Euro and will have no prior knowledge of the dishes or beverages on the specially designed menu.
Mr Ward says “cbm is immensely grateful to Mr Gault and the team at Euro for donating their time and energy into raising funds and awareness for cbm’s work.”
cbm’s Child Sponsorship programme’s focus is on supporting and educating children living with a disability and poverty. The money raised from the charity event will go towards stopping disabled children’s needless suffering in countries such as Africa, Asia and South America.
The events will take place at Euro, located at Princes Wharf, on the 13, 14 and 20 November. Tickets are priced at $150.00 per person, which includes a full three course meal with matching wine for each course and a $50 donation to the charity.
DNC wine merchants will be donating all the wine towards the three events.
