Thursday 8 November 2018 saw the beverages flowing, the sun shining and the ladies looking stunning in their race wear and fascinating fascinators at SYC’s annual Oaks Day Luncheon.
The Port Phillip Room was filled with just over 300 ladies who enjoyed a fun day out with scrumptious food, a Pimm’s cocktail on arrival, beverages, auction items, spot prizes and gorgeous views all whilst raising some money for our friends at the Sandringham Hospital.
Our MC, former Bayside City Council Mayor, Felicity Frederico, kept formalities to a minimum to allow maximum catching up and chatter amongst the guests. Director of Nursing, Judy Reeves spoke of how in previous years, the funds raised from this day had gone to the now operational Day Procedure Unit and thanked their ladies for the generosity and continued support of the Sandringham Hospital.
The ladies then continued in the Harbour View Restaurant and danced on the deck in the afternoon sun to Gary and Jeremy who entertained until early evening.
Collectively, all were extremely generous on the day and the luncheon raised just under $14,500 which will go to the purchase of state-of-the-art for the Maternity Ward.
