Trangie celebrates the Melbourne Cup | photos

Members of Trangie Hospital Auxillary and Trangie branch of CWA combined to host a Melbourne Cup luncheon at the Trangie Bowling Club on Tuesday.

Following a delicious meal, pre-race entertainment saw a bevy of local models parade fashions from Vinnies.

The raffle draw saw Thea Miller as the winner of a magnificent quilt crafted by Jill Flinn. Second prize went to Chris Welch while Terese Dennis was the third prize winner.

Diane Martin was judged best dressed lady while Frank Ferrari came out as the best dressed man and the award for the best hats was shared by Colleen Evans and Dawne McDougall.


All proceeds from the event went to the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse.

On behalf of the organisers, compere Shane Dolton thanked the crowd for their support of a charity that is, unfortunately, becoming more in demand in our town.

"Everyone knows someone who has been affected by this devastating disease," Mr Dolton said.

The cure lies in research and funds raised by events such as Tuesday's lunch are essential to the continuation of the search for a cure.

Trangie Hospital Auxillary and CWA would like to thank Trangie Bowling Club for the generous support given on the day.
