Longest Lunch big in every respect
THE longest table had 42 seats and there were 5984 glasses to wash up after the second annual Perth’s Longest Lunch at the Crown Grand Ballroom on Friday.
MC Shane Jacobson kept the crowd of more than 800 people entertained for the six-hour, six-course event but also had a personal experience to share relating to the people that benefactors Brightwater Care Group take care of.
Following Brightwater Partnerships and Philanthropy executive manager Ian Craig’s story about clients dealing with Huntington’s disease, Jacobson revealed that his sister Natalie had married into the world of the inherited disease.
The event raised $250,000 to bring a smile to Brightwater’s residents, clients and their families.
