This year’s Sausage Fest at Lost Lake Winery will take place on December 8 in support of Movember and men’s health and wellbeing.

Lost Lake Winery owner Ashley Lewkowski said he created the event last year to help the community get involved with such an important cause.

“Movember is such a great cause for men’s health and wellbeing and we have made an event down here that will be appealing to the blokes,” he said.

“A lot of farmers down here make their own Italian sausages and jerky, and at the Sausage Fest everyone can take part in games using their own products.”

One main event last year was a competition called ‘Best Mo’, which judged who had the best moustache.

“Last year that event raised quite a bit of money and this year we will be doing it again with Pemberton’s Hairdressing Salon judging the winner,” he said.

“I shave my beard off after Movember each year and then grow it back for the next one.”

Mr Lewkowski said he hoped this year would be a bigger event than the last.

“Last year we had 200 to 300 people attend and we raised about $1500 and this year we really want to raise more than that,” he said.

He said next year he hoped the event would continue to grow and raise money for such a good cause.
