The unique and usually very private Linnaeus Estate at Broken Head will be open to the public on the afternoon of Sunday August 13 for a special ticketed event to raise funds for The Buttery’s free Family Counselling program.
The event features a line-up of entertainers together with catering by Harvest Café, fine wines and an opportunity to bid for auction items, including artworks by leading local artists.
Since its inception in 2010, The Buttery’s Family Counselling program has helped almost 1,000 families in the Northern Rivers region and farther afield who face the challenge of supporting a family member who is addicted to drugs and or alcohol.
The program is supported entirely by donations from individuals and foundations, including The Northern Rivers Community Foundation.
The Byron School of Art is curating a collection of works for the auction by distinguished art authority and auctioneer, Robert Bleakley. Artists represented include the BSA’s Michael Cusack, Christine Wilcox, Angus McDonald, Meredith Cusack and others.
Event organiser, Courtney Cook has been busy sourcing items for the auction including a weekend in Sydney, accommodation at a local beach house and a golf package for four with a flag autographed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus.
‘It will be a unique event in an amazing setting for a fantastic cause. There’s only a limited number of tickets, so I encourage people to book now,’ Courtney said.
Tickets are sold on a first come basis and are available on-line through Eventbrite:
