Melbourne Cup For Manly Women's Shelter
Women and men across the Northern Beaches are celebrating Melbourne Cup with a difference at the annual Manly Women’s Shelter Melbourne Cup Luncheon.
This Melbourne Cup dress up, and enjoy a two-course lunch and dessert overlooking Manly beach and raise much-needed funds for the Manly Women's Shelter.
Proceeds from the event will help support the Shelter’s work in providing a safe haven for women facing homelessness, domestic violence or financial hardship.
“From frocks and fashion parades, to live auctions and sweeps, there is something for everyone at this year’s Melbourne Cup Luncheon," Manly Women’s Shelter President Julia Lever said.
“Most importantly, your generous support will help keep our doors open and provide much needed crisis accommodation and support to hundreds of women on the Northern Beaches.”
