This continuity not only created a sense of anticipation but also demonstrated the enduring commitment of the community to support Youngcare. The decision to make this an annual tradition speaks volumes about the event’s impact and the dedication of those involved.


Revving Up the Excitement: Automotive Racing Theme

This year’s Ribs & Red Luncheon was not just a feast for the senses but also a treat for automotive enthusiasts. With an exhilarating racing theme, the event welcomed special guests Paul Morris and Russel Ingall, adding a dash of motorsport excitement to the festivities.

In addition, the luncheon was honored to have the presence of Member of Parliament Steven Miles, who joined the celebration and underscored the importance of supporting charitable initiatives.


Community Contributions: Keeping Costs Low, Raising Funds High

The success of the Ribs & Red Luncheon was not just about the money raised but also about the strategic partnership with the Breakfast Creek Lifestyle Precinct. By generously providing the vacant space, the venue hosts played a crucial role in keeping the base costs low, allowing a more substantial portion of the funds raised to directly benefit the Youngcare charity. This collaboration exemplifies the positive impact that businesses can have when they actively support and engage with their community.
