While we can't put on our usual go-all-out soiree, we are still coming together on Tuesday 3 November for a bit of fun and the opportunity to dress up and catch up with friends while supporting a charity which cares for former race horses.
Each year, Bodhi hosts a beautiful Nup The Cup lunch event on Melbourne Cup Day, to raise awareness and funds for Horse Rescue Australia, a local charity which treats, rehabilitates and rehomes horses who have suffered abuse, neglect or abandonment.
Due to Covid restrictions, this year will be a little different. We aren't hosting an event, but instead we invite you to book a table and join us for lunch or dinner at your leisure, just like any other day, and enjoy special additions to our usual menu.
You can gather together a group booking of up to 30 people, under the latest lifts to Covid restrictions in NSW, for a Covid safe dining experience across our indoor and outdoor spaces.
Enjoy yum cha lunch or a la carte dinner with these special Nup The Cup additions, each named after horses currently in rehab at Horse Rescue Australia's sanctuary in Richmond, and with a portion of sales donated to support the charity.
