“I’d like to thank everyone that attended, our sponsors, and staff that put on such a great event! Samford Long Lunch continues to grow in numbers each year, we look forward to bringing the event back in 2024 and hope to see even more people enjoy a day out in Samford, raising money for the stags!” says Director Paul Comiskey.

The 2023 event was hosted by Nova radio presenter, Luttsy, and sponsored by What’s On Moreton Bay, Treasury Wine Estates, St Joesph’s Nudgee College and Samford Hotel.

The Comiskey family hope to continue to bring the community together each year and believe it is only the start for the Samford Long Lunch.

The ultimate country Hamptons inspired long lunch is back in 2024 with dates to be confirmed soon. Located in the beautiful Alan Cash Park, home to the Samford Stags, take a picturesque drive to Samford, through forest, farmland and valleys, for the social event of the season.

Support local suppliers by pre-selecting the food package of your choice – or pack a picnic instead – and be spoilt for choice with a selection of premium beverages to enjoy within an intimate styled setting, complete with champagne and cocktail bars, lawn games, live music and plenty of photo opportunities.

Attendees can get involved in raffles or bid on auction prizes. All proceeds raised are donated to local team, the Samford Stags.

As night falls, indulge in something sweet from a dessert food truck or a dance under the stars, before the event concludes at 8pm and attendees can head over to Samford Hotel for the after party.

Dress up for a day filled with good food and good company, in the heart of Samford.
