About The Bathers' Gold Lunch

The Bathers’ Gold Lunch is one of the most anticipated lunches on the Sydney social calendar and typically sells out within 48 hours.

This is the 13th year the lunch has been generously hosted by Serge Dansereau at his renowned Bathers’ Pavilion. Starting with champagne on the rooftop, come and indulge in an exquisite three-course lunch with wine in the restaurant, overlooking beautiful Balmoral.  There’s no better way to spend your Wednesday the 13th March - a fun-filled afternoon raising vital funds for kids with cancer.

About The Beneficiary

For 2019, Bathers’ Gold Lunch is raising vital funds for Zero Childhood Cancer (ZCC), a program led in conjunction with the Kids Cancer Centre at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.

This world-class program brings together all major Australian clinical and research groups to offer Australia’s first ever personalised medicine program for children with high-risk relapsed cancer.

Its work represents an unprecedented collaboration that stands to revolutionise the treatment of childhood cancer and is an integral step towards curing every child.

This year we aim to put two children through the Zero Childhood Cancer program – giving them the fighting chance they deserve.
