Old Bags luncheon

Isis Town and Country - - News -

OLD bags will gather at the Bund­aberg RSL on Novem­ber 26 for a women-only lunch in sup­port of the Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal.

The af­ter­noon will fea­ture auc­tion and raf­fles as well as plenty of friv­o­lous fun.

May­oress Joy For­man will host the Old Bags Lunch, which proved to be a hugely suc­cess­ful fundraiser for the Christ­mas Ap­peal last year.

“It was an op­por­tu­nity for ladies to get to­gether, have some light-hearted fun and raise money for a ter­rific cause,” Mrs For­man said.

The idea of the Old Bags Lunch is to bring along an old hand­bag that you no longer use or want, to swap with other guests.

The two-course lunch will also fea­ture raf­fles, with new hand­bags among the list of prizes.

Mayor Cr Mal For­man said the an­nual Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal raised funds for the Sal­va­tion Army and St Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety, which pro­vided food vouch­ers, ham­pers and toys for the re­gion’s dis­ad­van­taged fam­i­lies.

Last year this event proved to be one of the most sig­nif­i­cant fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives for the ap­peal, rais­ing just un­der $4000.

If you are un­able to at­tend this event you can still sup­port the ap­peal by making a do­na­tion at any Coun­cil Ser­vice Cen­tre or Bund­aberg branch of Auswide Bank.

The lunch will be held from noon to 2pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 26.

Tick­ets in­clude a two-course meal, tea and cof­fee, and must be pre-pur­chased by Novem­ber 20 by phon­ing 4130 4264, email­ing kim.ovens@bund­aberg.qld.gov.au or head into the coun­cil’s Bund­aberg ad­min­is­tra­tion build­ing at 190 Bour­bong St.
