The 'Boulevard Cafe' located on Bartels Boulevard Victor Harbor, will hold a dinner on Friday February 22 to raise funds to help alleviate the serious plight of farmers in drought affected regions on the West Coast of South Australia.

The event titled “Pub Night at the Boulevard” has been organised by Lisa Jamieson and Chris Roberts, co-owners of the popular cafe in conjunction with their chef Simon Howell.

Lisa and Chris took over the cafe three years ago and during that time they have organised numerous charity functions, raising funds for both the local community and other projects further afield. Since taking over the cafe, they have raised more than  $15,000, which is not a bad effort for a small business.

Lisa, Chris and their children shifted to the area from Roxby Downs three years ago and they absolutely love living and working in this region. “It's a wonderful lifestyle, our children have settled nicely at school and we do so enjoy giving back a little to the community that has embraced us and shared so much with us” Lisa said.  

A scrumptious three-course menu has been planned for the “Parma for an SA Farmer” evening with the total cost of the meal at $30 per head, which includes a bowl of either minestrone or roast pumpkin and garlic soup, a choice of four different main dishes, and choices of three delectable desserts. Vegan and gluten free diners will be catered for as well.

For more information on the fundraiser phone 8552 5092 or drop into the Boulevard Cafe and while you're there, grab  a delicious coffee and cake and meet Lisa.
