About 270 guests lunched at Gambaro Restaurant on October 18 and dug deep in their wallets to raise funds for The Wesley Hospital Prostate Cancer Care Program. It was the third annual luncheon to support the program hosted by the Gambaro family.

Channel 9 newsreader Andrew Lofthouse compered the event, and Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale helped to encourage spirited bidding for a range of donated auction items. Top price was paid for an accommodation package donated by the Gambaros for their new boutique hotel, under construction above the restaurant and due to open next year.
