Parched March Wrap 2013

Parched March, Sydney’s month-long bar odyssey, has wrapped up for the year with a VIP media and celebrity party held at The Lawn, Ivy. A record of $40,000 was raised throughout the month for the Animal Welfare League.

Guests mingled while sipping on cocktails by Suntory, wines from Wild Oats and canapés before Simon Mercier, owner of Name This Bar auctioned off artworks created for Parched March. Swing dancers got the party going and SYP, the Australian Psy impersonator performed Gangnam Style on stage.
