Spring into Spring Lunch

19th September 2021, Online, Via Zoom

Due to the uncertainty because of the changing COVID-19 restrictions, we have decided we will bring the Spring Lunch to you. All the wonderful things you have come to expect from a Children First Foundation event but in the comfort of your home. 

We’ll bring lunch to you via a gourmet 2-course lunch hamper from acclaimed French chef Romu Oudeyer, including a piccolo of Champagne to start the party.*

  • Hosted by: Marianne Van Dorslar –Television, Radio and Media Personality
  • Guest Speaker: Associate Professor Ton Tran, MBBS, FRACS (Orth) – Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon 
  • Entertainment: Josh Batten – Singer, Songwriter

* Hamper pick-ups will be on 18 September from a range of Melbourne and Mornington hubs to suit you – hub locations will be added to based on ticket sale locations. ​Current hub locations can be found here. Unfortunately, we cannot provide hampers interstate or to regional Victoria.
