Lucindale Ladies Night Out a smashing success

It was billed as a chance for women to have a fun catch up and a touch of shopping, and the Lucindale Ladies Night Out certainly delivered on March 2.

According to Nicole Hocking, one of the primary organisers, the night was attended by 80 people and raised approximately $2,000 for its cause, the Lucindale Area School Canberra Camp.

The Lucindale Town Hall was filled with various stalls, selling items such as jewellery, candles, linen, and aromatherapy products.

As well as a stall, Limestone Surf also had a fashion parade, and all of the models did top work showing off some gorgeous designs.

The wine was provided by Rymill, and there was also an incredible long table with assorted cheeses, fruits and other snacks. The food had been donated by various parents, and put together by Verity Ingham and Megan Watson.

“It was really good,” Nicole said.

“Everyone got behind the cause, and it was something that people wanted to go to, to have a bit of a shop, or just to have a night off with their girlfriends.”

The idea came from last year’s Swinging with the Stars, where something similar but on a smaller scale was organised.

“The Canberra camp committee decided to re-do it, but change things up a bit,” Nicole said. 

The community event had been planned since January, and the night went off without a hitch.
