Thursday 9 November 2017 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 mojito on arrival, beverages, auction items, spot prizes and gorgeous views all whilst raising some money for our friends at Challenge, supporting kids with cancer. 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 CEO, David Rogers spoke to the guests of the work Challenge do and showed an emotional clip that gave the attendees an introduction and understanding of how they support families living with cancer
The ladies then continued in the Harbour View Restaurant and danced on the deck in the afternoon sun to Fabian, Broc, Pete and friends who entertained until early evening.
Collectively, all were extremely generous on the day and the luncheon raised more than $15,600 which went towards the programs and services Challenge provide.
