LOCALLY-sourced food and wine, top chefs and entertainment will take centre stage at the inaugural Dare to Dream Long Lunch on October 13.

The charity lunch will raise funds for Shenton Park’s VoiceWorksPLUS – a repertory group for men and women with disabilities who have a passion for theatre, singing, dancing and acting.

Farmer Jacks managing director Fred Fairthorne said he hoped the lunch would raise $20,000 for the cause.

“It’s the first time we’ve done this because the repertory group for people with disabilities has grown, which means there are more resources required,” he said.

Celebrity Masterchef contestant Derek Lau will lead the way in the kitchen and create more than 120 dishes with the help of eight chefs and bar staff from Miss Chow’s.

The charity lunch will be held at the Adam Armstrong Pavilion in Dalkeith. To buy tickets, go to https://bit.ly/2lJ46Ba
