Food, giv­ing a win­ning com­bi­na­tion

Broome Advertiser - - News - Rob Broad­field

The Telethon Week­end at Cable Beach Club com­bines some of the best things in life: good food, good wine, great friends and giv­ing.

A life well lived is, in my ex­pe­ri­ence, a life en­riched by giv­ing to those in our com­mu­nity who need our help.

West Aus­tralians have a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing the best in the na­tion when it comes to look­ing after those in need — Telethon is the big­gest char­ity fund raiser, per capita, in the world — and our Broome week­end proves that point.

It is no ac­ci­dent that the Broome week­end is one of the most talked about events in the coun­try.

For the past five years, we’ve had a long wait-list of po­ten­tial guests ea­ger to join us on this 21⁄2 days of fun, food and frol­ics.

But, we made a de­ci­sion early on that we would not ex­pand the event — it is our be­lief that some­thing gets lost when a small and very per­sonal event for 110 peo­ple be­comes a mas­sive event for 350 or more.

All of us in­volved feel for­tu­nate to be able to present this amaz­ing week­end and to give to Telethon in a such a joy­ous and tan­gi­ble way.

Thank you, Broome. Thank you Hawai­ian and Cable Beach Club Re­sort. And thank you to the hun­dreds of peo­ple who work hard all year round to plan and ex­e­cute this amaz­ing week­end.
