Long-table lunch raises $60,000 for St Vincent’s Werribee

01 Mar 2023

St Vincent’s Foundation Victoria hosted the very first Long Table Lunch at Shadowfax Winery to raise much-needed funds for St Vincent’s Private Hospital Werribee’s Day Oncology Unit.

This incredible event was made possible by our visionary Werribee Events Committee - Amanda Williams, Michelle Salvalaggio, Rhiannon Karcoushkas, Brei Scolaro and Sue Rebesco, our donors and event sponsors.

The 40-degree weather didn’t deter the crowd of 130 well-dressed women who made donations and bid on auction items in support of their local hospital.

Sister Maryanne opened the occasion with grace and General Manager Emma Saliba inspired the crowd with her passion and commitment to local care at Werribee.  Event host and life coach, Brei Scolaro, presented an empowering group coaching session, encouraging guests to embrace growth and to ‘find their sparkle’.

Thank you to everyone involved in the event’s success. Together, we raised more than $60,000 for St Vincent’s Cancer Services in Werribee.

The Long Table Lunch will now become an annual event on the fundraising calendar.
