Mercedes Benz Adelaide and Unley 2019 Ladies Luncheon (past event)

SAHMRI Neil Sachse Centre hosted the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Ladies Luncheon at Adelaide Oval on Friday 8th February, 2019.  A record 380 attendees supported this wonderful fundraiser. Adelaide turned on a beautiful summer day and the iconic Adelaide Oval venue was at its best.  After sparkling wine on arrival we enjoyed a beautiful 2 course luncheon complemented with Hentley Farm Wines.

Denim Iniquity presented a Fashion Parade and we had 6 fun loving volunteers model their fashions.  We were thrilled to have Paul Vasileff from Paolo Sebastian as our Guest Speaker.  Paul was named Young Australian of the Year in 2017.  His amazing couture designs grace catwalks around the world.  Our MC the very talented Mark “Soda” Soderstrom interviewed Paul who explained how his business began as a school project and developed to a full blown business he could use the day he left school.  From here he grew a tiny one man band to international status.  He said that his intention was to continue to grow his business but remain in South Australia employing a group of talented South Australian people.  The interview showcased a humble person understating his success which made for an outstanding segment of the event.

Our wine wall was a sell out and there was very spirited bidding in both the live and silent auctions which resulted in an amazing $52,000 being raised for spinal cord injury research.

We look forward to another great event in 2020 so place it in your diary for Friday February 7th.  We will keep you informed about the format as it develops.

Our sincere thanks go to our sponsors for the event.
