A brunch event held yesterday in support of hospice care was a smashing success, according to one organiser.

Cher Przelomski, vice-president with Planning Factory Bermuda, described “Come on Down” as “fantastic”.

The event, held at the Oracle Boatshed in Dockyard, was a play on the popular American game show The Price Is Right.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Friends of Hospice which supports Agape House.

Food was provided by Fourways Inn and Restaurant with Mike Bishop serving as event emcee.

Bob Barker, the former host of The Price Is Right, wished event participants “the very best”.

Mr Barker said in the recorded message: “I hope you have great fun.”

He said Mr Bishop, a friend, had confided in him that he was “his hero”.

Mr Barker added: “So I know he is a man of good taste, and I know you are going to have fun with him.”

Ms Przelomski said that roughly 125 people took part in the first round of the game and 160 in the second.

Prizes up for grabs included airline tickets, a one-night stay in a king suite at The Loren at Pink Beach and electronics.

Ms Przelomski said it was the first year that the game show event had been done as a public, paid event in support of charity.

She said that it was possible the event would be held again.

Ms Przelomski added: “If we know the public really wants to have something, then of course we always consider what we can do to help the community.”
