If you've ever wanted to smash gingerbread houses for charity, you've come to the right website.
SAVE THE DATE - SATURDAY 2 DECEMBER 2017
The Gingerbread Demolition is a Melbourne charity event for Save the Children Australia's Cubbies program.
Cubbies, based in Fitzroy, provides a safe place for vulnerable children to play, learn and grow, with trained youth workers on hand provide mentorship and support.
On the night, it's a chance to unleash your inner child - decorating cookies, smashing gingerbread and eating delicious food - while enjoying adult-appropriate live music, beer, wine and cocktails!
You'll also have the chance to place your bids on a fun and colourful silent auction, including:
- 2 x nights at Mantra Lorne
- a mixed dozen from Welshmans Reef Vineyard
- $500 class voucher from General Assembly
- a private flying lesson from Pearson Aviation
- bespoke artworks from Bunny Noir and street artist, Sir Circle
- subscription to the Marshmallow Club
- rare whisky and tasting classes from The Whisky Social and more...
We'll feast on gingerbread from baking superstars Dessert Parlour, Cupcake Central, Miss Trixie Drinks Tea and Hawthorn Common, enjoy sweet and savoury treats from social enterprise food truck Crêpes for Change and Goldilocks Lunch Box, and sip on an exclusive Gingerbread Cocktail from our friends at 1000 £ Bend.
Plus an awesome live music line-up, including Melbourne swing vocalists, Lady Midnight, and more...
2017 DETAILS TBC...
Cubbies has been in the Fitzroy community since1974, and funded by Save the Children since 2014.
We know that newly-arrived migrant and asylum-seeker families often feel isolated when they arrive in a new country, so this is our way of contributing to an Australia that says 'welcome'.
A SMASHING GOOD TIME...
