Last Friday, Sharon and I had the privilege of attending the 2019 Ladies Charity Luncheon organised by the indefatigable Leona Smith and her amazing team.
Held at Trustpower Baypark, Leona attracts 1000 women (no, there is not an extra zero in error!) to raise funds for two important local charities: Tauranga Women's Refuge and WBOP Blue Light Youth Driver Navigator Programme.
Together with a great bunch of about 50 men, I was gainfully employed serving tables all afternoon for some very high spirited women who had hired us their personal waiters with all funds going to the charities. My big thanks to the wonderful Ladies at table 29; you were very kind to me.
This year, the vivacious Jackie Clarke was our MC, and she and the very talented Tina Cross sang and entertained the 1000 guests.
Congratulation Leona and team, and congratulations to the generous Ladies of #Tauranga
