Wine, dine for worthy cause

IPSWICH Hospice Care is calling for the city to support what could turn out to be its major annual fundraiser.

The inaugural 5 Tastes Alive function will be held at the Ipswich Grammar Risson Centre on May 31 from 7pm.

Hundreds of guests will be treated to a five-course tapas meal with wine tasting and entertainment.

Hospice spokeswoman Alison Lahey said the palliative care centre depended on fundraisers and community donations.

"We only receive one third of our required funding from the Government," she said.

Ipswich Boys' and Girls' Grammar Schools have already shown their support, allowing the use of the function centre and also providing manpower for the event.

Tickets for the event cost $50.

For information phone Ipswich Hospice Care on 3812 0063.
