Parisian Ladies Lunch – October 25

My French skills get me about as far as ordering a small Big Mac meal, and that’s it. Luckily I can pretend that I live the Parisian chic life at Room 81 on the Gold Coast. Hosted by Karen Phillips, guests will enjoy a glass of bubbles, a delicious high tea, and a luxurious swag bag to take home.

An exquisit Parisian chic ladies lunch will be held at Room81 on Tuesday 25th October in conjunction with Life Gold Coast Magazine and hosted by Karen Phillips. There will also be a raffle to benefit breast cancer. Tickets are $45; call 07 5570 0396 or email  H0454-SB03@sofitel.com
