Chefs for the Gascoyne
By Tyne McConnon ABC Rural 20 Apr 2015,
Farmers from Western Australia's Gascoyne have been left overwhelmed by the support shown at a fundraising event for the cyclone-hit region.
The Chefs for the Gascoyne event saw about 30 chefs volunteer to cook with donated produce for a paying crowd in Perth.
The fundraiser raised more than it had hoped to with a $100,000 cheque from supermarket group, Farmer Jacks, pushing it right over its target of $60,000.
