A fabulous Melbourne Cup Luncheon was held at Sorrento Bowling Club last Tuesday, with 107 guests enjoying champagne, sweeps, lunch, live entertainment and each other’s company.
The theme for the day was purple, black and white, reflected in the dresses, shirts and fascinators. The tables were adorned with black and white runners and sequinned vases wrapped in purple and white ribbons. Black horses held the table numbers and details on past Melbourne Cup winners added to the tradition of the day.
After watching the race on the big screen and enjoying a delicious lunch served by David Manuel and his staff of The Melt Hub, the crowd were entertained by Chris – Beatles to Buble, packing the dance floor.
Many thanks to our bar manager Ian Lucas and staff for all their help, and all the committee members and volunteers who helped to set up and clear tables. A huge thank you to Cheryl Greig for all her planning, organisation and hard work to make this event a great success.
