Satterley awarded a cup of his own
TELETHON speech and hearing patron Nigel Satterley was awarded his own miniature Melbourne Cup at his annual fashion parade fundraiser last week.
But he will have to wait until it arrives from Melbourne.
“I left it in Melbourne… it’s an IOU thank you from Victoria Racing,” Andrew Lemon, who accompanied the Cup to WA last week, said.
Mr Lemon said Nigel and Denise Satterley’s fundraising fashion show featuring Elle boutique had set a high “glamour” standard for the Melbourne Cup.
Elle owner Wendy Marshall said black and white was in for this year’s November race.
The 3.5kg cup was also paraded around Princess Margaret Hospital’s Starlight Express Room during the tour.
