Five in Five Mrs Sippy
Five in Five is a campaign encouraging singles to venture out with five people on five dates in five weeks, and help raise money for not-for-profit organisations across Australia.

There’s a free Cheeky Rascal cider on arrival and a dedicated area for Five in Fivers, so you can flirt to your heart’s content, all in the name of charity! Not that we needed an excuse to begin with…
