OzHarvest CEO CookOff
SSI’s participation in the event stems from the support OzHarvest provides asylum seeker clients in the form of food packages, every Thursday.
CEOs were grouped into teams and paired with celebrity chefs, including Matt Moran, Maggie Beer, Karen Martini, Miguel Maestre and Colin Fassnidge, to prepare a meal to serve to and enjoy with the guests.
“It was a fantastic night, everyone enjoyed it,” said SSI staff member Lynette Racheti, who is involved with distributing OzHarvest food to clients. “I enjoyed the music, the dancing, and the food, of course – it was top-notch. I also enjoyed seeing our clients enjoy the whole thing. They’d never seen anything like it so it gave them a real thrill.”
The participating CEOs have helped raise a total of $942,855.50 so far, which will go towards further OzHarvest food deliveries for people in need like our clients.
