Your chance to bag a bargain at Old Bags Lunch
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.
