“Had a great night for our fundraising event. Both restaurant staff China Garden and bar staff of the club worked together to help us. The evening went odd without a hitch, even supplied the microphone for our speech and music. We went from the expected 80 to 95 overnight but they didn’t flinch and catered perfectly for us. Thank you Rachel, Katie, Jacky (and staff).” – Anita Buckley
