As mo event grows, more cash is raised

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

This year’s Sausage Fest at Lost Lake Win­ery will take place on De­cem­ber 8 in sup­port of Movem­ber and men’s health and well­be­ing.

Lost Lake Win­ery owner Ash­ley Lewkowski said he cre­ated the event last year to help the com­mu­nity get in­volved with such an im­por­tant cause.

“Movem­ber is such a great cause for men’s health and well­be­ing and we have made an event down here that will be ap­peal­ing to the blokes,” he said.

“A lot of farm­ers down here make their own Ital­ian sausages and jerky, and at the Sausage Fest ev­ery­one can take part in games us­ing their own prod­ucts.”

One main event last year was a com­pe­ti­tion called ‘Best Mo’, which judged who had the best mous­tache.

“Last year that event raised quite a bit of money and this year we will be do­ing it again with Pem­ber­ton’s Hair­dress­ing Sa­lon judg­ing the win­ner,” he said.

“I shave my beard off af­ter Movem­ber each year and then grow it back for the next one.”

Mr Lewkowski said he hoped this year would be a big­ger event than the last.

“Last year we had 200 to 300 peo­ple at­tend and we raised about $1500 and this year we re­ally want to raise more than that,” he said.

He said next year he hoped the event would con­tinue to grow and raise money for such a good cause.
