Celebrity Chef Luke Mangan will be taking a taste of Australia to Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands where he will cook for more than 200 people at a prestigious VIP dinner event. Luke has been exclusively invited to design and prepare the menu for the 2019 Manuka Doctor Necker Cup where he will show off his culinary skills to some of the world’s greatest sports legends. The 2019 Manuka Doctor Necker Cup is a six-day, all-inclusive, world-class Pro-Am Tennis Event taking place on Sir Richard Branson’s private island, Necker Island on December 4 – 9, 2019.
Luke will fly to the British Virgin Islands to showcase his much-loved creations with a dedicated team. The theme will be “Light, Clean and Healthy” says Luke, who is currently working on a event menu, which will include Hiramasa Kingfish for the entrée, organic chicken for mains and a light Caribbean-inspired dessert.
In the spirit of tennis, ATP / WTA Tour Players and Legends will also be paired up with amateur teams of all levels to compete in a fun and social tennis competition. Teams can compete to win their bracket and earn a chance to play in the Necker Cup Finals, which will be held on December 8th, before a Charity Tennis Exhibition.
Participants can enjoy exclusive dinners, networking opportunities and the much-loved water-activities on Necker Island that include paddle boarding, kite surfing, sailing, snorkelling, beach tennis and more. Organized since 2012, the Necker Cup has raised and directed over US$3,000,000 in funds to affiliated and worthy charities including the National Tennis Foundation and Virgin United.
