A long table lunch for a worthy cause

Breast Cancer Care WA is a WA charity that provides personalised emotional, practical and financial support and care to people affected by breast cancer. A fantastic cause supporting women and men with breast cancer their carers and families through their breast cancer journey.

So when we had the opportunity to be the air conditioning sponsor of their fundraising event the ‘Long table lunch’, we jumped at it.

The day celebrated the strength and resilience of those affected by breast cancer and raised over $200,000 to help Breast Cancer Care WA to continue to offer their services to those who them.

The 1920s themed ‘Long table lunch was held at Claremont Showground under an impressive 30 metre x 55 metre marquee. Nearby in the kitchen marquee (15 metre x 20 metre) 7 of WA’s top chefs created a culinary extravaganza of five courses for the 750 guests.

To ensure food preparation guidelines were met whilst the chefs were preparing their menu, Active Air provided our 105kW packaged air conditioner and 100kVA generator to keep the ambient temperature of the kitchen marquee within the acceptable guidelines. And on site to make sure we did that, were members of the local Shire and Food Regulatory board.

To ensure guests enjoyed their long table lunch comfortably, we also provided 20 industrial pedestal fans for the seated marquee.

It was such a privilege to have been involved in such a great event for a a very worthy cause, and we’re thrilled that it was a ‘roaring’ success. We hope to be involved again next year as the event day air conditioner sponsor.
