The Boardwalk Tavern Hope Island was the scene of a White Sunglasses “Spring Carnival” Luncheon on Friday September 14. Yours truly donned a green hat and white gloves for this event to raise funds for the Animal Welfare League of Queensland Inc. Many women attended the luncheon and enjoyed a fun event with lovely views over the Hope Island Marina. My calamari lunch was very tasty with a nice salad and chips – dessert was strawberries and cream. The event also included a fashion parade of lovely cruise wear, a “Spring Carnival” fashion competition and the sale of a lovely range of costume jewellery – yours truly now has a new diamond fashion ring! This was a great event to help us get in the mood for the Melbourne Cup lunches to follow!
