Lions Club hosts annual Ladies Night

Seventy women have attended the Margaret River Lions Club's Ladies Night for two hours of shopping fun on Friday, September 6.

Tickets to the Ladies Night event were highly sought-after, selling out almost a fortnight before the event.

A number of lucky attendees were treated to great door prizes and raffle prizes, with all money raised on the night going to a worthy local charity.

With so many worthy local charities to choose from, the Lions Club decided to allow the shoppers to pick the local charity to donate to.

This year, the $1,800 raised went to the River Angels, a Margaret River based cancer support group dedicated to helping local families.

The Lions Club's annual Ladies Night has now been running for five years, often selling out and drawing a generous crowd.

Last year, 69 guests raised more than $2,000 for the 'Share the Dignity' charity at the event.

With tickets for this year's Ladies Night having sold 'like hotcakes', and following positive feedback from attendees, Lions Club secretary Nigel Vangucci said the club would now consider whether or not to host the event on a more regular basis.

"A lot of the feedback that we received was that once a year wasn't enough," he said.

"It's certainly something we are considering and I do plan to bring it up at the next [Lions Club] committee meeting.

"However, hosting the event does require a lot of preparation, time and effort."

The Margaret River Lions Club extended thanks to the generous local businesses that donated the 22 door prizes and to Cape Lodge for the raffle prize cooking lessons and lunch for two.
