If you haven’t had the chance to check out VIVID Sydney, lighting up Sydney until the 10th June, get to it! Many establishments are enticing people with special dinners while Sydney is lit up. Personally my next favourite event after the NYE fireworks spectacular. It is free and just so pretty.
Registrations are open and flooding in for The Sweet Swap. There are also fantastic prizes from Russell Hobbs up for grabs. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, The Sweet Swap is an online event which results in packages of sweets arriving on your doorstep and a few friendships formed. All this fun while raising money for Child Fund Australia. Head over to www.thesweetswap.com to find out more and register.
Bake Sale vs Cake Stall, an American & Australiana baking bonanza. The kind of feast where you can chow down on a fair-dinkum lamington alongside a slice of ma’s apple pie, a true blue ANZAC bickie, a peanut butter brownie or some delicious fusion of all of the above. All in the aid of raising money for the Sydney Story Factory on Saturday 15th June at Redwaters Markets at Redfern Park, 9.30am – 3.30pm.
