The first Glamorlicious event saw glamour galore on Thursday, October 3, from noon-4pm at Ranelagh Club in Mount Eliza. The successful event was beyond beautiful with fabulous raffle prizes from Peninsula businesses, attendees dressed to impress, and a flawless spring day. Product-filled goodie bags and bubbles on arrival out on the sunny deck meant the event started with a bang. The sold-out event was all thanks to organisers Lisa Walton, the publisher of Mornington Peninsula Magazine, and Erica Macpherson.
An impressive $1000 was raised from the raffle that saw attendees in awe at the 3m table covered in spectacular prizes. Money raised was donated to Rye’s World. Rye Johnson is an eight-year-old Peninsula boy battling life with cerebral palsy and undiagnosed regression. “It was lovely to meet Rye’s mum, Brooke Johnson, and present her with the donations,” said Erica. Adrian Dickens, from Circa AD Jewels, delivered an informative presentation on Diana Princess of Wales — the jewels of a modern day princess and had a stylish collection of his creations on display for sale. Thank you also to Adrian’s commitment to donate 10 per cent of his sales from the day and any that transpired from the Glamorlicious event to Rye’s World.
Lady Fox was a vision of glam as she walked on to the dance floor in a pastel mint-green dress adorned in sparkling sequins and diamantes. Her voice captivated and encouraged everyone to join in on her rendition of Marilyn Monroe’s Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend. Her performance was ideal for the stylish beachside location that is the Ranelagh Club. The elegant venue boasts beautiful views of the bay from the deck. “We couldn’t have been more impressed with the attention of the staff, who went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our day ran smoothly — and the food was delish,” said Lisa. “We wholeheartedly recommend Ranelagh for your next event.”
