The Gingerbread Demolition is a Melbourne charity event for Save the Children Australia's Cubbies program. Cubbies, based in Fitzroy, provides a safe place for vulnerable children to play, learn and grow, with trained youth workers on hand to provide mentorship and support.
On the night, it's a chance to unleash your inner child - decorating cookies, smashing gingerbread and eating delicious food - while enjoying adult-appropriate live music, beer, wine and cocktails.
Our special host is actor and comedian, Stephen Curry, so you're guaranteed a few laughs as well!
You'll also have the chance to place your bids on a fun and colourful silent auction, including:
- 2 x nights at Mantra Lorne
- a mixed dozen from Welshmans Reef Vineyard
- $500 class voucher from General Assembly
- a private flying lesson from Pearson Aviation
- bespoke artworks from Bunny Noir and street artist, Sir Circle
- a subscription to the Marshmallow Club
- rare whisky and tasting classes from The Whisky Social and more...
We'll feast on gingerbread from baking superstars Dessert Parlour, Miss Trixie Drinks Tea and Hawthorn Common, enjoy sweet and savoury treats from social enterprise food truck Crêpes for Change and Goldilocks Lunch Box, and sip on an exclusive Gingerbread Cocktail from our friends at 1000 £ Bend.
Plus an awesome live music line-up, including Melbourne swing vocalists, Lady Midnight, and more...
Kicking off at 7pm on Saturday 10 December, your ticket is $52 and includes food all night, two drinks, music and entertainment, and of course - your chance to smash the giant house!
This year, we're supporting Save the Children Australia's Cubbies program. Cubbies supports newly-arrived asylum seeker children and their families with mentorship, social inclusion and education through play.
We know that migrant and refugee families often feel isolated when they arrive in a new country, so this is our way of showing them that Australia says 'welcome'.
The Gingerbread Demolition story
The Gingerbread Demolition began as a house party in 2011, and after getting bigger each year, the little party has grown up to be to a not-to-be-missed event to raise funds for Save the Children Australia.
Yours in gingerbread,
Jeanette and Will xx
