Some of the region’s top milliners will showcase their hats and head pieces in the lead up to the Spring Racing Carnival in Warrnambool on Thursday.
The Hat and Champagne event will include work by Sandy Forrester, Sue Younis, Sharon Wilson, Miss Moo Millinery’s Jodi Fry and Georgina Conheady which will be displayed and for sale, alongside “nearly new” pre-loved hats.
South West Healthcare Warrnambool Auxiliary member and event organiser Fiona Rule said it would be a great night and attendees could enjoy a glass of bubbles with their friends while listening to guest speaker Georgina Conheady who would share anecdotes from her journey from Noorat girl to Melbourne milliner. There is also a raffle with prizes up for grabs including headwear and vouchers.
Ms Rule said it was a fun night for a good cause and money raised would be used to purchase equipment for the South West Healthcare rehabilitation unit.
Hats and Champagne is on at the Warrnambool Racecourse’s Public Dining Room (enter from Moore Street) at 5.45pm. Entry $25.
