St Mary House of Welcome's De-frustration for Dignity 2020 fundraiser
No matter how you look at it, 2020 has been a year like no other. Normally at this time of year, St Mary’s House of Welcome is busy organising its ‘Degustation for Dignity’ annual fundraising gala event to help people sleeping rough and experiencing chronic homelessness. Sadly, COVID-19 and physical distancing has put a stop to that for this year.
Far from being defeated, St Mary’s House of Welcome has created something new — ‘De-frustration for Dignity’ to be held on Friday 30th October, 7:00pm - 8:30pm. Cost is $220 for two people. Each ticket purchased entitles you to a premium grazing hamper for two, full of beautiful Victorian wine and produce; exclusive access to an online wine Masterclass hosted by renowned wine writer, Max Allen, who also will be speaking to some of Victoria's leading winemakers, as well as tasting notes, access to an online silent auction, and more. This will all be delivered to you in the comfort of your own home, anywhere in Australia (or the world for that matter!)
So, join St Mary's - virtually - for a night in, to relax, unwind, and shake off some of the frustrations of the year. If you can’t make it, or if you just want to spread some cheer, purchase a ticket for a friend, loved one, or colleague who could do with a little De-Frustration in their lives.
Proceeds support St Mary’s meals program.
