Pilbara News - - Pilbara Lifestyle - Ali­cia Per­era

■ Kar­ratha hosted its own ver­sion of the Long Ta­ble Lunch breast can­cer fundraiser last Satur­day night when more than 70 peo­ple gath­ered in the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex’s main func­tion room for a “Ser­ata Sotto Le Stelle”, or Evening Un­der The Stars.

The event is in its sec­ond year, with all funds go­ing to Breast Can­cer Care WA, a char­ity that pro­vides prac­ti­cal, financial, and emo­tional sup­port to peo­ple af­fected by the dis­ease.

Guests en­joyed a three-course Ital­ian meal pro­vided by Onyx Cafe in a room dec­o­rated with the colours of the Ital­ian flag and plenty of fairy lights.

More than 30 Kar­ratha small busi­nesses con­trib­uted to the silent auc­tion, rais­ing more than $7000.

Annabelle Lit­tle and Gil McComb won best-dressed and Glen Carter won best pur­ple ac­ces­sory.

High­lights in­cluded MC Steve Cook read­ing a per­son­alised poem in hon­our of the event and Cathy Tobin and Kym Shep­herd­son per­form­ing a song for breast can­cer suf­fer­ers.
