Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Women’s Day Luncheon

At Coral Sea Marina Resort

Attendees are asked to “expect the unexpected” at this year’s International Women’s Day lunch hosted by the Zonta Club of the Whitsundays and held at Coral Sea Marina Resort.

The theme of the day is ‘Cracking the Code’ and the dress style is ‘Rainbow’.

All women are invited to be colourful and creative with their outfit choices, the more vibrant and dazzling the better for your chance to win a prize for best dressed.

“Zonta has the reputation of holding fabulous events and we are hoping this will be as good if not better than our past performances,” said Marlene Reiffel from Zonta.

“Coral Sea Marina Resort, as you know, is a fabulous venue.”

This year’s guest speaker is Dr Kerry Reid-Searl AM who is an engaging presenter and Emeritus Professor.

As always, there will be a range of opportunities to win prizes and donate money – from the lucky door prize to rolling raffles, a major auction and the popular silent auction.

Melinda Butcher from Taylors Property Specialists is the auctioneer on the day and she will provide a lively commentary on all the action.

Zonta would like to thank all the local businesses for their kind donations.

Another highlight of the day is a delightful dining experience with a two-course meal included in the ticket price, as well as a glass of champagne on arrival.

There will also be live entertainment and the room will be decorated in the over-arching rainbow theme.
