Three years ago, I introduced a ‘Girls Night In’ candlelight dinner for the ladies living at Elliot Gardens, Port Elliot. It has been a great success and still continues today.
This event raises funds for women’s cancer, an average of $1,000 each year. However importantly the ladies have a terrific evening. The Elliot Gardens team provide their time to assist with the setup, food preparation and they also run ‘games’ before and in between courses.
And I do all the cooking and I am NOT a professional chef by any stretch of the imagination! Eight male residents wait on the tables and bar and then we do it all again next month for the ‘Boys Night In’ dinner, the ladies will wait on them!
