Last Friday afternoon ComLink launched Common Ground Community Cafe, a reboot of its successful predecessor Link Café Lakeside.
The launch was celebrated with a two-hour cocktail function, that raised money for the Compass Institute’s Assistance Animal program.
While it may sound strange to use your debut to promote another organisation, it’s exactly what Common Ground is all about.
‘We want Common Ground to be the place that everyone goes to meet, whether for business, pleasure or family. We want to bring people together around great food, with a philanthropic spirit’, Chef Scott Coulson said.
Common Ground and its amazing supporters were able to raise $450.00 on the night that will go towards training Compass’ assistance dogs, who work with and improve the lives of autistic children.
Raising money for the community will be at the forefront of what we do. Common Ground will constantly be looking for new community partners to support with our meal of the month and event nights.
These events, to be held once a month on Friday nights, will bring together locals for Friday knock offs and a great opportunity to unwind at the end of the week.
But don’t forget our meals of the month! These reasonably priced chef’s specials are more than just a gourmet lunch, they are our innovative way to give back to local causes. $5.00 from every Meal of the Month we sell goes directly to our partner organisations.
As you can see from our first event, we’ve already put a smile on a few faces.
Common Ground is open from 7am to 3pm Monday to Friday. We hope to see you here soon!
