VU Polytechnic Charity Dinner series 

In partnership with renowned chefs, our students from Victoria University Polytechnic create dining experiences at our student-training restaurant, VenU.

All profits are proudly donated to a chosen charity.

Victoria University Polytechnic’s first Charity Dinner was held in October 2018, which raised $3933 for Brodie’s Law Foundation. View the YouTube video about the inaugural charity dinner.

The Polytechnic’s Charity Dinner Series is part of Victoria University’s new School for the Visitor Economy. This new cross-university school will provide the hospitality and tourism industries with an increased volume of qualified professionals to support rapid growth across the sector.
