The Longest Table is the Hospital Research Foundation's annual cancer fundraiser. This year Susie Chapman and the staff at the Gawler Ranges Motel held a lunch to raise funds to save lives from cancer. They raised just over $3,000 thanks to those who came and lots of generous donations from people in the district. Apart from raising money for cancer research it was a great opportunity for ladies to get out of the house and spend some time with good friends and good conversation. I think it's important to have days like this where we can go and relax and enjoy ourselves and each other. Susie and Tyler also offered to taxi people after the event so there was no need to drive after having a few drinks which was fantastic of them!!
We had some delicious food and played some hilarious games hosted by Kylie Bartley. There was a monster auction with some amazing prizes including flights, oysters, accommodation, art, wine, sheep, pizza, fitness class, the list goes on. Lastly there was an entertaining fashion parade featuring the latest wears from Lil' Birdie. It was a fantastic afternoon and the money raised goes to such a worthwhile cause, well done to all those people who came and to those who made the day a raging success.
