Plates for Mates is a national fundraising event conceived by a group of Australia’s leading chefs to support friend, Matt Golinski. Matt tragically lost his wife, Rachael, and their three daughters in a home fire on Boxing Day 2011. Matt sustained third degree burns to over 40% of his body and until recently was in a medically induced coma at RBWB.
The initiative has been coordinated by Janelle Bloom, Manu Feildel, George Calombaris, Damian Heads, Gary Mehigan and Alastair McLeod – as an urgent call to arms to raise funds for the Matthew Golinski Recovery Fund and the McComb Foundation.
The Urbane Group is proud to be supporting the Plates for Mates fundraising event and for the month of April pledges to do the following:
- The Laneway will donate $1 for every burger sold on Fridays in April to Plates for Mates, and will ask patrons to do likewise.
- The Euro will donate $1 from every table all April and ask patrons to do likewise.
- Urbane will donate $2.50 for every guest that orders from the degustation menu all April, and will ask patrons to follow suite.
