Your chance to bag a bar­gain at Old Bags Lunch

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

The Queens­land Va­ri­ety Old Bags Lunch will be back in full swing on Au­gust 27.

For any lady who loves a cham­pers with lunch and fab­u­lous com­pany, this is def­i­nitely a date to mark in the diary.

The Air­lie Beach Old Bags Lunch will once again be held at Fish D’Vine: Fish Cafe and Rum Bar.

Fish D’Vine direc­tor Re­becca Clark prom­ises a stylish set­ting with a heav­enly food and drink menu of Asian in­spired ban­quets and se­lected wines.

The lunch is a fun, fash­ion driven fundraiser fea­tur­ing a wide se­lec­tion of colour­ful, mul­ti­pur­pose and so­phis­ti­cated hand­bags.

The idea is that at­ten­dees bring along their old hand­bags and go home with new ones.

Lo­cal event co-or­di­na­tor Wendy Downes is en­cour­ag­ing guests to think pink.

“It’s for Va­ri­ety so we’re all about having fun so why not get in the spirit and wear pink?”

“It’ll look great and com­pli­ment the black and white decor – the brighter the bet­ter,” she said. Va­ri­ety Old Bags Lunch com­mit­tee mem­ber Mel Dea­con hopes the com­mu­nity will get be­hind the worth­while fundraiser.

“It’s def­i­nitely one of the best days in Air­lie – so many women en­joy each other’s com­pany just as much as the fan­tas­tic cause,” she said.

At­ten­dees have the op­por­tu­nity to buy, bid, win or bribe new hand­bags be­fore the lunch is over with some hand­bags in­clud­ing spe­cial treats in­side them such as pam­per­ing items and even holidays.

Money raised at the Air­lie Beach lunch will as­sist Va­ri­ety to em­power chil­dren who are sick, dis­ad­van­taged or who have spe­cial needs, to live, laugh and learn.

Women can ex­pect to find a gor­geous se­lec­tion of hand­bags on of­fer in an as­sort­ment of bright or slick colours, suit­able for any and ev­ery oc­ca­sion.

With just un­der 40 per cent of tick­ets left for sale, this is one event that is guar­an­teed to sell out.
