The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) lit up on the night of May 16 as it hosted 550 guests for the Starlight Foundation’s Five Chefs Dinner.

The event raised enough funds to support Starlight Children’s foundation’s hospital programs at the Royal Children’s Hospital and Monash Children’s Hospital for four months. In addition, it also granted 15 Starlight children wishes.

The guests were served canapes by MCEC’s executive chef Peter Haycroft and a five-course degustation designed by leading Victorian chefs.

“This is the eighth year we’ve been involved in the Starlight Five Chefs Dinner and it’s always a privilege to be able to support Starlight’s programs in Victoria and knowing that every meal we serve contributes towards putting another smile on a sick kid’s face,” Peter Haycroft said.

Starlight CEO Louise Baxter said that the dinner played a significant role in the hospital program.

“Starlight Five Chefs Dinners are unique because almost everything on the night is generously donated; the venue, chefs’ time and expertise, food, wine, entertainment, and auction items,” she said.

The chefs who prepared meals for the night were Benjamin Cooper (Chin Chin), Guy Grossi (Grossi Restaurants), Nicky Riemer (Bellota), Phil Wood (Laura at Pt Leo Estate) and MCEC’s Alessandro Bartesaghi and Ian Burch.
