Thursday 7 November 2019 saw the beverages flowing 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, an Aperol Spritz cocktail on arrival, beverages, raffles, auction items, spot prizes and gorgeous views all whilst raising some money for our friends at Challenge – supporting kids with cancer.
The room looked beautiful with handmade flower centrepieces made by ill children and their mums and a $150 sukin skincare gift pack and block of Darrell Lea chocolate at each setting.
Our MC, former Bayside City Council Mayor, Felicity Frederico, kept formalities to a minimum to allow maximum catching up and chatter amongst the guests. Challenge Event Manager, Jane Raney spoke briefly and showed a short video on the services Challenge provides to ill children and their families.
The ladies then continued in the Harbour View Restaurant and danced away to Gary and Jeremy who entertained until early evening.
Collectively, all were extremely generous on the day and the luncheon raised just over $22,000 which will go towards programs and services Challenge run for kids and families going through cancer.
