OCRF 2015 White Shirt Campaign launch

The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation's seventh annual White Shirt Campaign kicks off this month. The campaign, a partnership between the OCRF and Australian fashion house Witchery, has gained the support of a host of high-profile Australian ambassadors over the years and has raised $6.1 million for ovarian cancer research.

To celebrate its launch in 2015, the OCRF threw a fittingly chic bash at the Sydney Opera House's Utzon room on 8 April. We donned our Witchery whites and joined the fun.

The food Aria Catering laid on a spread that included bite-sized canapés (tuna tacos with jalapeño, pickled heirloom carrots with goat's cheese and celery salt, and spiced duck pancakes with hoisin sauce). The more substantial likes of seared salmon with sesame, crisp seaweed and ponzu sushi rice, and miniature wagyu burgers with tomato, aged cheddar and pickles followed.

The drinks Pikes Traditionale Riesling 2014, Pikes "The Dogwalk" Cabernet Merlot 2012 and Pike & Joyce "Methode Cuve" Sparkling Pinot Noir Rosé were on pour.

We loved The turnout in support of the cause was impressive. Chef Matt Moran, OCRF co-founder Liz Heliotis, Witchery managing director Linda Levy and OCRF ambassadors Cheyenne Tozzi, Didier Cohen, and Zac and Jordan Stenmark were among the glittering crowd.
