Wow! What a night.


We hope you had fun…all 800 of you!
The National Hotel, Fremantle BID and St. Pat’s would like to thank you so much for coming out in such numbers to support this very special event.  It was truly heartening (and a little bit astonishing) to see so many people banding together in support of our community’s disadvantaged.

We’re still counting the pennies from the evening but here’s a hint – we all made a big difference to the programs St. Pat’s is able to offer… 

  Thank you.
Check out the full list of the fabulous businesses who contributed this year.   Don’t forget to repay their kindness when you get stuck into the Christmas shopping!
Remember to “like” us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with all the news for the 2018 Long Table Dinner! 

And if you’re looking for a unique memento, we’re selling t-shirts and tea towels at the St. Pat’s Rack op-shop.  32 Adelaide Street, Fremantle. 
Thanks once again.  What a very special place we get to call home.

About the Event

Thank you to all 800 people who attended the 2017 Christmas Long Table Dinner.  We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!  

We’re currently adding up the total profits from the evening and will let you know how much was raised shortly – it’s very exciting!

All profits from the event will go to St. Patrick’s Community Support Centre helping homeless and vulnerable people.

St Patrick’s Community Support Centre

St Patrick’s Community Support Centre has been an integral part of the Fremantle community for 45 years, and is proud to continue its outreach into the community through fundraising efforts like the Long Table Dinner. St Patrick’s CSC provides integrated support services to disadvantaged people in and around Fremantle, with the aim of helping people towards self-sufficiency, and a better life.

As government funding for services like St Patrick’s CSC continues to drop, we rely more and more on the support of our Fremantle community, who are always ready and willing to assist wherever possible. We’re especially grateful for our more than 150 volunteers, who in the past year served 31,745 warm meals to the centre’s 8,367 visitors.
