The Gut Cancer Foundation (GCF) and acclaimed Kiwi chef Geoff Scott have launched a unique charity event which aims to raise funds for Gut Cancer research and clinical trials; Gastrofest – New Zealand’s Biggest Dinner Party.

In a twist on the Gala Dinner concept, Gastrofest hosts will sign up to cook a beautiful 5-course meal for 8 guests on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020. All ingredients for the meal will be delivered direct to the host with Geoff creating a fun, instructional video to help them create their very own culinary masterpiece, from the comfort of their own home.

Guests and hosts will be asked to donate a minimum of $100 per person to the Gut Cancer Foundation for their Gastrofest experience. On the night, dinner parties around the country will be brought together by a live stream and auction, hosted by legendary NZ Paralympian, Liam Malone.
