The 2019 Wyong Gold Cup Carnival launched in perfect style on Saturday 27 July 2019 with The Purple Gala. The event was a partner project for WRC, H&H Catering, Spark*d Events and Cancer Council NSW and was attended by 150 guests. Ticket sales, auction and raffles on the evening where leveraged to raise funds for the support of those affected by Cancer and Cancer research. DeBortoli Wines graciously committed their Down the Line range to the charity by donating $5 per bottle sold the cause.
Our Parade Ring Pavilion was adorned in perfect purple hues for the occasion by Spark*d Events who donated their services to set the scene for a magical evening.
Complimentary to the scene we had the pleasure of hosting Internationally acclaimed Country Music superstar Gina Jeffreys and husband Rod McCormack performing a selection of tracks from Gina’s upcoming new album ‘Beautiful Tangle’.
It was H&H Catering deserving the biggest credit during The Purple Gala however. Vying for yet another industry award, H&H delivered a flawless evening of food and beverage that was being judged in real time. A divine,and seemingly impossible to pull-off under pressure, menu with elements of sous vide Jewfish, braised oxtail croquettes and coconut mouse encased in a meringue spheres just to name a few. A sensational effort to say the least.
A stunning start to the Carnival season. We hope to see you at either raceday during the Carlton Draught Wyong Gold Carnival, September 1st and 6th 2019.
