Ladies sparkle at David Jones Highpoint Fashion

15 May 2015

Saturday's Ladies Network Event was again the highlight of the Club's luncheon calendar.

Over 210 ladies were in sparkling form as they enjoyed a superbly presented room, fine cuisine and the best of Montara's wines.

After intial welcomes and special thanks to the generous sponsors (as listed below, please support them) the ladies settled into a most enjoyable afternoon, featuring the David Jones HighpointFashion Parade with Leslie and her daughters Lisa and Nora strolling the catwalk with great confidence and style. By the end of the parade the crowd broke into loud applause, with Leslie actually stealing the show from her daughters ! 

Gift bags from L'Oreal and Designer Eyes's were everywhere as the Ladies invested enthusiastically in the monster raffle, and bid bravely for the high class silent auction items.

The club would like to acknowledge the outstanding work of the Ladies Network Committee, lead by Angela Mcguire and including Raylene Bentick, Paris Stanley, Nicole Foley, Alison Comerford, Lauren Corstens, and Kathy Madden.

Excitement built as the lunch continued with over 20 raffle items drawn at 2.00pm, and at 4pm as the Silent Auction came to a not so silent conclusion!

But the event/party was only starting to really fire up. The DJ cranked up the music at 4.30pm and it wasn't long before some ladies ventured onto the dance floor. Once the football scores and awards were read out (was there a game on?!!) the party and the clubrooms rocked on into the night.

As the final Club people left the rooms later that evening everyone was in agreement, the Ladies Network Lunch just keeps getting better every year!

The Club would also like to thank our brave MC Paul Madden, our hard working caterer - BBQ Blokeand Veronica, Colleen and team, along with Grant and Mick behind the bar, and the guys behind the scenes, Vinnie, Terry and co. for logistical support.

The Ladies Network has become one of the brightest and strongest groups within the broader club, and the Committee is delighted to see all the Ladies having a very well deserved big day out. Thanks to all the Ladies for embracing the Club so strongly, and the funds you raised are very much appreciated and will be put to good use.
