FreshChoice Picton supports Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary
FreshChoice Picton are honorary sponsors of Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary and make a number of donations throughout the year.
For this particular event local business owner Matt Lambert along with Gibbs on Godfrey's Restaurant in Blenheim put on a fund-raising lunch and FreshChoice Picton provided some of the groceries required - Sherry vinegar, Valrhona chocolate, Fresh As raspberries, Black Garlic, Marlborough EVOO and sea salt, liquorice root etc (some really high end and "hard to get a hold of" products). FreshChoice Picton owner Hamish Watson even chipped in by pulling his chef's whites out of retirement to help serve the lunch! (Hamish was a chef for 15 years).
The room was packed and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful cuisine and outstanding wines. A lively auction followed the final course and overall $24,000 was raised for the Wildlife Sanctuary.
