Ladies Who Lunch at Wantirna South Football Club

Ladies Who Lunch is an annual event held at Wantirna South Football Club which aims to gather together all the women related to the Club for socialising, entertainment, food and wine.

The 20th of May of 2017, the clubrooms became a pink Ladies venue, for the Pink Ribbon Appeal. 65 women enjoyed the comedian Justine McInerney, and Kerry Freer, the special guest speaker, who having survived breast cancer, delivered a most poignant presentation of her journey.

Our team, Main Events, enjoyed organising an external event. The feedback was mostly positive, but even the negative was a real learning experience. We also reached  the objective of raising enough money to update the sound system at the club.
