Allambi staff went ‘all out’ for a fundraiser with this year's Melbourne Cup luncheon.  

Held at the Dimboola Memorial Secondary College hall, the luncheon had all the trimmings one would expect, for a Melbourne Cup luncheon.

It was not just the staff who ‘went all out’, but also the guests with the ladies going to extraordinary efforts to look their very best for the occasion.

The staff even managed to get a number of the residents dressed up and to attend.

The fundraiser was in full swing, with Faye Wilson running the board and the ladies on bookmakers table were busy running the sweeps on each race.

The kitchen staff went to a great deal of trouble, putting on a fantastic luncheon, that any Melbourne Cup fan would put their money on.

The Melbourne Cup luncheon would not be complete without the ladies hats and fascinators. Robyn and Biacna Lauricella hats became the highlight of the day, when they went all out with their floral designs.
