CWA turns back clock for a good cause

South Western Times - - News -

Poo­dle skirts, vic­tory rolls and greaser style will make a fash­ion come­back on Satur­day, as guests frock up for the Capel Shout Retro Blast Din­ner Dance.

Hosted by the Capel Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion at the Capel Coun­try Club, the event aims to raise money for Alzheimer’s Re­search Aus­tralia.

Guests will get a taste of the 50s with a retro style smor­gas­bord, mock­tails and cock­tails and learn some new rock and roll moves with a demon­stra­tion and lessons by Sim­ply Swing.

Singing group The Wed­nes­day Girls will help to get peo­ple onto the dance floor as guests can use their new-found danc­ing prow­ess in the dance off for the ti­tle of belle and beau of the ball.

As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Toni Stein­bren­ner said it was an op­por­tu­nity for com­mu­nity mem­bers to rem­i­nisce about days gone by or for younger gen­er­a­tions to ex­pe­ri­ence the flair of the 50s era.

“We are en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one to dress in the theme and every­thing will be done in the theme – so the dec­o­ra­tions, the food, the mu­sic and the games as well will all be from that era,” she said.

“Last year was very suc­cess­ful, we had lots of fab­u­lous re­marks and some­one said ‘run it again and don’t change a thing’.

“It is a good chance for ev­ery­one to get to­gether – come and let your hair down.”
