In what promises to be the most elegant dining experience of the year, Lunch En Blanc, an afternoon of fine food and entertainment inspired by the global phenomenon returns to Buderim next weekend Sunday 7 October at the Buderim Memorial Hall.
After the runaway success of last year’s inaugural event, 2018 Buderim Foundation Lunch En Blanc is the perfect opportunity to celebrate with friends, and to raise funds that go to supporting the Foundation’s philanthropic activities.
Inspired by the original Parisian chic picnic, Lunch En Blanc is now a worldwide event in which people dressed in white gather in a public space and set up a temporary, chic dining area to share food and comradery.
Locally, it is a chance to dress (fearlessly!) in all white and assemble your own bountiful picnic basket to share with others amid a splendid setting of long white tables.
The result is a fun, glamorous moveable feast that Foundation Event Committee Chair Lloyd Edwards describes as the ultimate long lunch.
“Since last year’s sell out event, Lunch En Blanc has fast become one of the most anticipated dates in the Buderim Foundation’s social calendar,” Mr Edwards said.
“It’s really an event not to be missed and it raises important funds for the Foundation.”
The ticket price includes a glass of bubbles on arrival, entertainment, a live auction and raffle prizes, as well as access to a cash bar. BYO is also encouraged.
More than 120 guests supported last year’s inaugural Lunch En Blanc, raising over $6,000 for the Foundation.
Mr Edwards said he was pleased to welcome two new event sponsors on board this year, Garland Waddington Solicitors and Ray White Buderim.
“It is hoped the event will continue to grow each year with the aim to become the Buderim Foundation’s flagship fundraiser. Event sponsors are a big part of ensuring we can grow the Lunch En Blanc into a more successful event each year, which in turn benefits our whole community.”
Book early to avoid disappointment – tickets are $40pp and with places limited, this event will sell out.
