|Vito and Julian congratulate |
on a job well done
The newly formed Friends of St John’s hosted their first fundraiser last Saturday night at the Port Albert Community Hall. Forty guests enjoyed an exciting four course menu prepared by chef Vito Sechi of Wildfish Resturant Port Albert www.wildfish-resturant.com.au matched to single malt whiskies presented by Julian White owner of Whisky + Alement Melbourne. www.whiskyandale.com. Julian, a Melbourne whisky expert, introduced each course sharing his extensive knowledge of food and whisky. Thank you everyone for supporting the restoration of St John's Port Albert.Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event and learnt a great deal about how whisky is brewed, how to appreciate whisky, even how that smoky flavour gets into some whiskies. If you have ever wondered about any aspect of whisky your wonderings were answered by Julian during the evening in a professional and lively manner. Vito’s special menu was surprising, delicious and perfectly matched to the whiskies.
Julian and Vito donated their skills and time for the benefit of the Port Albert community and specifically to raise much needed funds for the restoration of St John’s Port Albert. St John’s in Raglan Street is now the only church in Port Albert. The Reverend Jo White conducts services at St John’s on the first and third Sunday of each month at 10.30am.
The Friends of St John’s would like to thank local resident and artist Warren Curry for the donation of his hand coloured print of Wharf St Port Albert which he donated as first prize in a raffle drawn on the night. Other prizes were donated by local businesses; Rodondo, Port Albert Wine Bar and Café and Radiant Health Massage.
