Fascinating occasion is on the books

By Riverine Herald

LADIES, it’s that time of the year again, the time to dust off those fascinators.

Vivid’s FUNRaising Committee’s Oaks Day Luncheon is just around the corner.

Back for its third year, the charity event raises money for Vivid’s lifechanging work.

Last year’s hit luncheon saw 170 ladies gather and raise more than $6000.

And committee member Jan Grant said she hoped this year would be no different.

‘‘It’s an amazing chance for ladies to dress up in all their finery for a good cause,’’ she said. ‘‘You can be a bit quirky if you want — or you don’t even have to wear a hat if you don’t want to. Just come and have a good time.’’

The luncheon will be held on Thursday, November 8 at Rich River Golf Club from 11.30am to 4pm. Tickets cost $95 per person and include a complimentary drink on arrival followed by a three course gourmet lunch, with drinks at bar prices.

There will be a TAB service, sweeps, raffles and prizes for Lady of the Day and Hat of the Day.
