Looking fabulous Ladies!
Melbourne Cup Lunch
Kerry Baird Gidget Foundation Ambassador, hosted this annual lunch in support of the Gidget Foundation and 3 other charities, Burdekin, Sunnyfield and BeCentre. Held at the Manly Pacific and attended by around 300 people it was great forum for awareness raising and fundraising as well as a fun event.
Held in the week before the first Bledisloe Cup game, the Gidget Rugby lunch is a fun, popular event for rugby mad supporters of the Gidget Foundation. The Fox Sports commentary team once again provided great insights and entertainment and lunch attendees were excited to have Israel Folau among the guests. Thank you to all those that attended, bought raffle tickets, donated and participated in the auction and games.
