Gate to Plate, Grafton’s annual fundraising signature food event organised by Grafton Art Galley Foundation, has provided a boost to the Port of Yamba Museum.
Marea Buist president of the Museum said she was asked by organisers if she could get a team together from museum members and to supervise ‘back of house’ for Gate to Plate.
“The guests began arriving at midday and our team worked through until 6pm hand washing and drying plates, platters, glasses and table accessories and cutlery for the five course meal for 177 guests. We had a wonderful day and rewarded with $1,000 towards our museum roof appeal.” said Marea.
