Gunnedah Youth Council’s (GYC) Dessert Bar was a sweet success on Friday night.
The pop-up style Dessert Bar was a youth initiative and raised $800 for Gunnedah Youth Council and Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund.
The community were treated to mouth-watering desserts including hot chocolates, triple decker mudcakes, ultimate brownie sundaes and more.
“The concept was created by our GYC members and they did a fantastic job planning, organising, cooking and serving at the event. This was their first event of this kind and I’m proud of all of the members’ efforts in making the night a success,” Gunnedah Shire Council’s Youth Development Officer Sewa Emojong said.
“The money goes back to the youth of our community, so it was great to see them work so hard for it.
“We have received positive feedback from people who attended and hope to bring more similar events to the community.
“We would like to thank Sally from Mitre 10, who created a vertical garden to decorate the area, the PCYC for lending us catering equipment, GYC parents and everyone who helped us to get the word out. It was a collaborative effort.”
The Dessert Bar is the first initiative of its kind for GYC and was supported by Gunnedah Shire Council and NSW Department of Industry’s Vibrant Precincts Project.
GYC is now preparing for their role in the upcoming Spirit of Christmas Fair.
GYC meet on Wednesdays from 4.30pm-5.30pm, youth aged from 12-25 are all welcome to attend.
