Some years ago the Ladies Day began as a fundraiser by the ladies for the Rugby Club, but in 2017 it was decided to donate the day’s profit to the Mark Hughes’ Foundation for Brain Cancer.
The social day, always a success, exceeded expectations, so the committee was thrilled with the amount raised for the charity.
Luke Moloney won first prize in the raffle.
Other prizes went to Ken Fleming, Cheryl Chalker, Hannah Hand, Carmel Croker, Robyn Cummins, Brian Coleman, B. Edwards, Dannielle and Amy, Leisa Croker, Tom Hand.
Donors were – Danielle in Vogue, Ploughman Café, Country Outfitters, Taralga General Store, The Tangled Vine, Made by Moo, Taralga Candles, Beaches Beautiful, Webster and Co.
