29 October 2007 Be where the REAL Noosa equine action is this Melbourne Cup
Just 100 lucky punters will be able to get their hands on tickets to the Noosa North Shore Resort's 2007 Melbourne Cup Lunch
, which supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). The theme is 'pink'- so grab your hat (or fascinator!) - and get ready for a fantastic Cup day with your friends.
Tickets are just $55 each, with $5 going to this important cause. Book a group of ten, and get two free bottles of wine for your table at The Verandah Restaurant.
Arrive for 11am, and exchange race tips over a complimentary glass of bubbly on the expansive deck. Talk about getting into the spirit of things - from here you'll see the Resort's Equestrian Centre horses enjoying their day in the arena!
A leisurely and delicious three course lunch will be served, and the entertainment begins.
Before the big race, enjoy "Fashions on the Verandah"- a parade showcasing this summer's best looks, from the Fred & Ginger Boutique of Peregian Beach.
Take part in the Calcutta sweep (10% of proceeds will also go to the NBCF), and have a chance at winning great prizes such as resort accommodation, High Ropes 'High Flyers' group tickets, or dinners for two at The Verandah in the Fashions On The Field competition.
Then watch the race that stops a nation on the Bi-rite Electrical big screen.
Even your children can enjoy the day, with a kids activities program running from 11am to 3pm. The cost is $12.50 per head, including lunch, and is suited to children four years or older.
A shuttle bus will be provided to escort guests to and from the event, leaving from Hastings Street, so getting there and home afterwards couldn't be easier.
Whether your preferred shade of pink is hot, baby or fuchsia, start planning your outfit, book in your friends, and prepare for a fantastic Melbourne Cup Day at the Noosa North Shore Resort. Gentlemen in pink are also welcome!
