The 21st annual Liquor Industry Trade Luncheon, hosted by the Bayfield Family has been locked in, and will take place on Wednesday, 1 December.

While the lunch was originally pencilled in for Wednesday, 10 November the current COVID-19 rules and uncertainty around the date from the NSW Health roadmap, the date has been moved. The family it said it wanted to avoid having to go virtual and made the decision to lock in a 100 per cent date.

The annual Bayfield lunch has raised more than $3.3m for the Children’s Cancer Institute and that amazing effort will continue this year through the famous main and silent auctions, industry raffle and other great fundraising activities.

Wayne Bayfield said: “This year marks our 21st Anniversary of this amazing fundraising for Children’s Cancer Institute. During this time this event has raised a staggering $3.3m+ in vital research funds. It is only with [the industry’s] dedicated and ongoing support that we have been able to achieve this.

“Through your support we have managed to raise enough money to contribute to their vital research including funding towards senior researchers, critical genome sequencing of DNA & RNA, laboratory drug screening, cellular testing for detecting risk of relapse and more.

“Just 40 years ago, cancer was nearly always a death sentence. Now through dramatic achievements in medical research, eight out of 10 children survive. However, sadly three kids are still dying every week and we feel that is not good enough.

“As a family orientated business we are passionate about supporting Children’s Cancer Institute achieving their goals and will not stop until ’10 out of 10’ kids survive this insidious disease.”
