I was honoured to be given this plate on Monday night. One of only 100 made, it is signed by Masterchefs George Calombaris, Gary Mehigan, Manu Feildel, Janelle Bloom, Alastair McLeod and Damien Heads who together created Plates for Mates to make money to help out their colleague Matt Golinski.
As most of you know, Matt lost his wife and daughters in a terrible housefire on Boxing Day and suffered deep burns. He was recently released from hospital but will be having expensive ongoing treatment for his physical and emotional scars for some time. Plates for Mates is an initiative that has been embraced by the hospitality industry who’ve been very generous in donating their time and own money to help one of their own.
Anyway, I’d like to auction off my plate, with the proceeds to go back to Plates for Mates and I’m asking for generous bids for this unique item. (Which also comes with a Plates for Mates apron) Please pass this on to anyone you know. You can post on this blog with bids and I am happy to not make the posts public.
