Last week I was invited to attend the Variety Toy Bank Rockpool Luncheon at Crown Perth, presented by Masonmill Gardens.

Since 1994, Variety Toy Bank has been bringing happiness to children who have escaped domestic violence situations and are sheltering in women’s refuges. It holds a minimum of three events per year, with funds raised through donations, raffles and auctions. Attendees are also asked to donate a new toy.

In recent years, funds raised by Variety Toy Bank have provided resources for refuge workers to teach children about their right to feel safe, rebuild their sense of safety and equip them with the self-confidence and skills to hopefully break the cycle of violence.

The next Variety Toy Bank event is the “Enchanted Forest Parade” luncheon in the Crown Astral Ballroom on Friday 08 September. For an amazing gourmet experience, don’t miss out on the 2017 Variety of Chefs dinner in the Crown Ballroom on Friday 21 July.

I’d like to thank Variety – the Children’s Charity of WA, Rockpool Bar & Grill and all the event sponsors for allowing me to attend this most enjoyable (and delicious!) event for a very worthwhile cause.
