Do More Than Dine '18

An exclusive dinner to raise money for Scarf, a social enterprise using hospitality to transform lives.

Hosted by Matt Preston


Join Scarf for our third annual Do More Than Dine fundraising dinner on Thursday 7 June and enjoy an intimate five course dinner with matched wines from some of Victoria's best producers - Curly Flat, Bannockburn and Punt Road.

Andrew McConnell and his team at Cumulus Inc. are doing the cooking, and seven of Scarf's fabulous graduate trainees will be working the floor and sharing stories from their time at Scarf and what they've been up to since graduating. 

This will be a night to remember.

Read about the culinary indulgence to expect on the night.

Hosted by inimitable Masterchef judge and Scarf Ambassador, Matt Preston, Do More Than Dine will greatly assist Scarf in continuing to transform the lives of young people facing barriers to work. We’re aiming to raise at least $55,000 to fund Scarf’s hospitality training, mentoring and paid work experience programs.

Our unique programs take place in Melbourne's best restaurants, and grow the skills, confidence and employability of young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

On the night, there'll be Mystery Envelopes for sale, as well as a 'Money-Can’t-Buy' live auction with prizes from the likes of Brae Restaurant, TarraWarra Estate, EZARD, Bar Saracen, Longrain, Epocha, Doveton Fletcher, Bar Liberty, Two Birds Brewing, Blackhearts and Sparrows, Boomtown Wine, Gerald's Bar, Patrick Sullivan Wine, Simon Johnson and Lucy Liu.

Seats are extremely limited and this event books out quickly, so get in early to avoid missing out. 

Event enquiries:



I became a Scarf Ambassador because I love the very direct action; taking people who need skills and giving it to them in a very one on one way. I love the fact that Scarf doesn’t try and cookie cutter people, they actually really celebrate the people as much as the skills.
