Clients, team members, families and friends at Arcare Peregian Springs all enjoyed a fashion show after watching the Melbourne Cup.
Ladies paraded around the dining room in their gorgeous outfits and shoes, while everyone enjoyed the delicious cheese platters and drinks.
The clients at Arcare Peregian Springs love dressing up and the Melbourne Cup event was the perfect excuse to do just that!
It was great to see all the families and friends joining us in the special Melbourne Cup celebrations.
And it was also wonderful to see the different groups of people socialising with one another.
“I’m having so much fun with my family and my friends. Everyone looks beautiful all dressed up!” a client commented.
After the fashion show, the ladies went to the theatre to check out all the clothes and shoes on display.
Prizes were given to the clients who were voted best dressed and clients with the best hat and best fascinator.
There was a sweep stake of $1 and $2 taken in the morning and the winning results were displayed in the dining rooms.
Clients, team members and friends were very excited about their winnings!
It was a big day of fun and excitement with the race but afterwards, everyone got to relax with a fashion show and some drinks and nibbles.
