As soon as we heard Church St Enoteca would be hosting a fundraiser for Bushfire relief we immediately signed up to attend.
From our experience of previous held here we knew that it would be a good evening for a very good cause.
As we waited for people to arrive we enjoyed glasses of Gaston Chiquet Champagne and Trumer Pils. Platters of chicken and black truffle tartlets, sher wagyu tartare and freshly shucked oysters with watermelon granita & prosciutto kept us satisfied.

During the evening, several auctions took place with all funds raised also going to the cause. I must say that GQ did an excellent job as auctioneer and I'm not just saying that because we know him.
The final tally at the end of the night was an absolutely fantastic
None of this would have been possible without the generosity of the suppliers, the staff and owners of Church St Enoteca so kudos to all of them for pulling this together in such a short amount of time.
