The sun shone for  the Montefiore 87th Annual Fete last weekend at which an estimated 1200 supporters of all ages came along to enjoy a fabulous day of fun.

Shoppers hungry for  bargains arrived well before the official opening time at Sydney’s Hunter Hill venue and all day people snapped up clothes, jewellery, toys, books and glassware.

Children were treated to performances from popular entertainment group Go Seek! and school bands from Masada. They also loved the facepainting, the jumping castles, rides and of course, Monte the Lion

Fete Chairman, Roy Cohen acknowledged the generosity of the Fete sponsors, donors and the Volunteers who worked tirelessly both before the event and on the day. “I would especially like to thank Masada pupils,” he adds. “The bands performances were outstanding and the army of volunteers from Masada who helped set up and pack up worked extremely hard.

The sun shone all day and people went home with bagfuls of bargains and full stomachs from the fantastic food stalls.

The Montefiore Fete is the longest running event in the Jewish calendar and raises vital funds for the Motnefiore Home. The funds from the last three years fete enabled Montefiore to completely refurbish the special care unit at the Hunters Hill campus – due for completion in December.
