To keep the spirits high, the day will include a special raffle of goods from Love Stories, Hellenika, Brooklyn Beauty Bar and QT Gold Coast to support local charity Hear & Say. At the end of the day, you’ll also be gifted with a special goodie bag filled with heaps of local goods! This is a textbook recipe for a great day out.

With Ink Gin cocktails flowing all day long, a lavish canape lunch menu (including a fresh seafood station, delectable fork dishes and a lavish dessert), as well as a 4-hour premium beverage selection including Chandon Brut, you’ve ensured a luxe cocktail event.

Tickets are $170 per person, and with all of these inclusions, you won’t find a better deal at any other function. Knowing your ticket will be helping ‘open worlds for deaf children,’ there is no better cause or event to unite and celebrate the Melbourne Cup this year.
