Ladies Who Lunch

Thursday, 29 March 2012

WHAT'S better than a good natter with 'the girls' over a spot of lunch? Great chat, great friends, great food and the opportunity to raise money for a fantastic cause at the same time, that's what. 

The red carpet is being rolled out for the glamorous ladies of the East as the Edinburgh Sick Kids Friends Foundation (SKFF) presents an afternoon of fundraising, gossip and merriment.

The Ladies Spring Lunch will be hosted by Forth Radio presenter Tonya Macari in the city's stunning Balmoral Hotel on April 20th. Ladies will be greeted with a glass of sparkling Prosecco before enjoying a delicious two course lunch in the fabulous Holyrood suite.

Between courses, guests will also be treated to a fabulous fashion show featuring a selection of Edinburgh's finest and most unique designers. Among others, Catherine Aitken, Rowan Joy and the quirky Miss Dixiebelle will showcase both vintage and on-trend fashion accessories that will provide Edinburgh's style-savvy ladies inspiration for their summer wardrobe.

Whether you're looking to entertain clients, staff or simply have a girls' day out with your nearest and dearest, the Ladies Spring Lunch will make you feel like an Upper East Side socialite.

Having a child in hospital is every mother's nightmare, so funds raised from this event will go towards helping sick children and their families while they are in hospital.

The Sick Kids Friends Foundation provides state of the art equipment to underpin the hospital's excellent service and reputation, family accommodation so that parents can stay close to their children, and the Drop-In Centre to give families extra support to help them get through the difficult times.

The Ladies Lunch costs £55pp or £550 for a table of ten.

Please join SKFF at the Ladies Spring Lunch 2012 and help make the Sick Kids even better!
