Cup lunch and pa­rade ben­e­fits com­mu­nity

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS - Jac­inta Can­ta­tore

NINETY guests packed the hall at the Brunswick District Bowl­ing Club last week for the club’s an­nual Mel­bourne Cup lunch.

Club vice pres­i­dent Kerry Moore said the event was a great suc­cess.

“This event re­ally brings peo­ple from all walks of the com­mu­nity to­gether,” she said.

“And it’s lovely to see a lot of vis­i­tors here to­day too.”

Guests were treated to a three-course lunch, sweeps, raf­fles, spot prizes and a fash­ion pa­rade or­gan­ised by Bun­bury’s St Vin­cent de Paul op shop.

Mrs Moore said it was great to see the re­turn of the fash­ion pa­rade, be­cause there had not been one at last year’s event.

She said the de­ci­sion to have sec­ond­hand fash­ion for the pa­rade had been a win­ner.

“I think they did a fab­u­lous job,” Mrs Moore said of the St Vin­cent de Paul “models”.

Man­ager at the Bun­bury shop Marie Van Bruchen said the unique thing about the cloth­ing from the ‘Vin­nie’s on Arthur’ store was that it was all bou­tique brands.

She said this made it a high fash­ion pa­rade but with an af­ford­able price -tag, and she had ar­ranged for the out­fits worn by the models to be avail­able for pur­chase at the event.

“It was a great day and a fan­tas­tic time was had by all,” Mrs Van Bruchen said.

“The best thing is that all the money raised through our Vin­nie’s stores goes to fund pro­grams for wel­fare and for the home­less.”
