‘Dine at Mine’ for Camp Quality

dine_at_mineGet ready to cook and bake for a good cause. Dine at Mine is a major new fundraiser for Camp Quality, in support of children living with cancer and their families.

The concept is simple. During August 2013, invite family and friends to a home dining experience and ask them to donate what they would’ve spent eating out to Camp Quality. All funds will help create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.

Now that’s a good excuse to get back in the kitchen.

To register as a Dine at Mine host, simply visit www.dineatmine.org.au or call 1300 730 787.
