What better way to raise money for mentoring fatherless boys than with other like-minded folk over a drink and a sumptuous meal? With the thoughtful addition of auction items and raffles this organisations' financial and creative contribution to our cause is significant.

Barworks Long Lunches

Barworks pub, gastro bar and family-friendly restaurant chain has hosted several Long Lunches to raise money for Big Buddy. They've held one already in 2018, once again providing a platform for philanthropic minded businesses and individuals to network in the name of a good cause, over ticketed gourmet lunches.

Not only do the after-cost funds raised from tickets work their way towards bettering fatherless boys lives, the proceeds from raffles and silent auctions increase the amount finally donated. We can't thank Barworks enough for partnering with Big Buddy to make this happen.

Pictured here are Big Buddy Trust Chair Travis Field (left) and Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen's Director Mark Jackson, holding the result of a 2017 Lunch. In summer last year we were also lucky enough to recieve $16,000 from another of our Barworks' family, The Lula Inn. Pictured is BB CEO Paul Burns and previous manager of The Inn. Sums like this make change truly possible.

But the charity of this organisation doesn't stop there. In March 2018, Jamie Freeman and Steve Schute of the Barworks family, generated over $2000 in donations offered to their sponsored weight loss bid. That's what you call a win-win....or is it a win-lose?!
