TV entertainment icon Kerri-Anne Kennerley to feature as Women of Influence Guest Speaker
The Australian Turf Club (ATC) will celebrate the return of the Sydney Everest Carnival’s flagship fashion and hospitality event – the Everest Carnival Fashion Lunch at Royal Randwick on Thursday 6 October.
Hosted by Channel Seven’s James Tobin in the Queen Elizabeth II Ballroom at Royal Randwick, the glamorous event is the biggest yet and is expected to attract Sydney’s philanthropic, fashion and social set.
More than 350 guests will enjoy a custom designed three-course menu curated by Sydney Everest Carnival Culinary Ambassador Colin Fassnidge with premium beverages including Chandon Garden Spritz Cocktails, Petaluma wines and Moët and Chandon upgrades, while taking in a spectacular high-energy Everest Carnival Spring Fashion Show featuring Australian fashion designs.
The Everest Carnival Fashion Lunch has aligned with the ATC Foundation to raise funds on behalf of SpinalCure Australia, the leading not-for-profit organisation which promotes a cure for spinal cord injury (SCI) research.
Proceeds raised at the event will go towards SpinalCure’s flagship program Project Spark, a world leading medical research program which aims to develop neurostimulation treatments to restore meaningful function to people living with SCI in the short term and is currently underway with clinical trials.
Australian entertainment icon and SpinalCure Australia Ambassador Kerri-Anne Kennerley will feature as ATC’s Women of Influence guest speaker at the coveted event. In addition, guests will witness a live performance from powerhouse all-female group Les Femmes and could win various impressive raffle items including a $30,000 custom-made Cerrone jewellery piece.
ATC Foundation Chair Trish Egan said: “The ATC Foundation is delighted to be the charity of choice for this flagship event and to raise funds for SpinalCure Australia.”
Thrilled with the new partnership, Executive Director of SpinalCure Australia Duncan Wallace said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with the ATC Foundation to help raise awareness and fund our current clinical trials which have the potential to profoundly change the lives of people living with a spinal cord injury.”
ATC Executive General Manager Commercial Melinda Madigan said: “The Sydney Everest Carnival is renowned not only for its world-class racing but also for its celebration of all things fashion and style. Back after a Covid hiatus, the Everest Carnival Fashion Lunch is guaranteed to be an unforgettable day with the queen of Australian television and a fantastic entertainment line-up to get everyone up out of their seats.
“We are proud this year’s lunch will also provide a unique and profiled platform to raise funds through the ATC Foundation for SpinalCure Australia.’’
VIP Guests who have attended the Everest Carnival Fashion Lunch in previous years include the late Carla Zampatti, Rebecca Vallance, Edwina McCann, Michelle Payne, Samantha Armytage, Katelyn Mallyon, Dani Willis, Cherie Romaro and Monika Tu.
