THE stunning Cruden Farm property located in Langwarrin will open its gates once again, for the annual International Women’s Day Garden Party Luncheon, Cruden Farm ‘Lunch by the Lake.’
The luncheon to be held on Thursday March 23, will raise funds for ongoing research on Cystic Fibrosis.
Former Shepparton resident and Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Australia ambassador, Teresa Carlson said, “The objective of this wonderful event is to raise awareness and really get the message out there.”
Teresa’s daughter, Michelle sadly lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis back in 1993 at the age of seventeen. Michelle’s passing has been the catalyst for Teresa’s efforts to assist in finding a cure for CF.
“I can’t bring Michelle back, but I can help by working towards a cure for others suffering with the disease,” Teresa said.
This year’s event will include a three course lunch, wines by Bellarine Estate and tea, coffee and softdrinks available along with guest speakers and light entertainment.
Tickets to the event are $135 per person inclusive of all food, wine and other beverages. Bus services will be running from Shepparton and surrounds offering transport to and from the event for just $30 per person return.
Teresa said, “We welcome anyone to attend this fantastic event. We are expecting 200 people again this year and tickets usually sell very quickly, so I encourage any interested members of the community to get in early.”
The Garden Party Luncheon event will be held on Thursday, March 23, 2016 at Cruden Farm, the property of the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch AC DBE. To book tickets and for all other enquiries, contact Teresa Carlson on 0407 433 321 or Suzanne Murphy on 0419 003 095.
