ABC Wed: Letter N for New Zealand.




No Cloche but my Italian Wok lid will do.
Put the blind on, and eat.

Letter N is for New Zealand.
for New Zealand Chef Simon Gault.
For the Nation's loveable Masterchef cooking judge.
For his numerous awards,
For his involvement with CBM New Zealand.
For fine dining at "Night"
For Not seeing when you eat.
When you Nibble your food, you get an idea of what it is like to live with a disability.
You will Never forget how fortunate you are.
Appreciate the hard work of CBM New Zealand.
And Not taking for granted Simon Gault 
and his merry men sweating in the hot kitchen.
Thank your lucky star that you are Not singing,
"I am Nobody's child."

Ka Pai, Paki Paki Simon, 

Your work inspires me and make me think of my own charity for the Deaf in Kenya.




While you dine in such splendour, you will be raising funds for the wonderful work of cbm, who change and even save lives of children and adults living in the poorest countries of the world and carrying the additional burden of disability.
 
Simon has experienced this first hand, after traveling to Sri Lanka and visiting the Monaragala School for the Deaf and Blind, meeting children living with disabilities. 

“I shall never forget the kids I visited,” he said. “It was an emotional experience. I knew I wanted to do something to help raise funds for children living with disabilities in the poorest countries and cbm was the perfect choice.”

And speaking of disability, you’ll be given a token idea of what it’s like living with a disability, when from the outset, you’ll be blindfolded and rely on your other senses to experience this incredible evening.
 
Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.  Tickets are $150 with $50 being a donation towards the work of cbm.
