a very worth cause

A few weeks ago, the news reported that Alira Restaurant's fearless leader and industry veteran Mikee Collins fell 8 stories from a balcony over Christmas, causing horrific injuries and has left him fighting for his life. After several rounds of serious operations, it's a relief to hear that Mikee is in a serious but stable condition.

Those who have experienced a friend or family member spending extensive time in hospital knows how much of a toll it can take on emotions as well as finances.

To that end, Mikee's friends and members of the food industry have rallied together to raise money to help Mikee and his family get back on their feet after this terrible accident - and all you need to do to help is eat and can do that, can't you?

On January 30, Cargo Bar will host an amazing evening of food, wine and glittering auction prizes, including a round the world ticket from Flight Centre or dinner at any restaurant of your choice with the dashing Simon Thomsen.

Tickets are just $80 with all proceeds going towards helping Mikee recover from this horrible accident.
