The Late Mail LuncheonÂ®, spring racingâ€™s premier social event, will be held again this year on Derby Day eve in Melbourne and bring together trainers, racing experts, dignitaries, celebrities, fashionistas and of course the serious punter.
This years’ luncheon will feature champion trainers Peter Moody, David Hayes, Mick Price and Mark Kavanagh who will be joined on stage by industry proâ€™s Shane Anderson, Mick Sharkie and TAB Sportsbetâ€™s Glenn Munsie.
This extraordinary line-up of racingâ€™s elite will provide guests with an analysis and insight into the fancied runners in the Derby, Cup and Oaks. They will also try and tip the winners of the big races.
MC Shawn Cosgrove will be joined by Honorary Guest and Key Note Speaker, David Galbally QC. David is of course the son of legendary criminal lawyer Frank Galbally, is a Queenâ€™s Counsel and is considered one of the most influential and thought provoking legal minds in the country.
Rokk Ebony, Australiaâ€™s leading luxury hair brand is the naming sponsor of the 6th annual luncheon and will provide ladies attending the event with some surprises. Leading brand Guinot is also providing some amazing prizes for ladies on the day and one very lucky guest will win a Guinot package of product worth $1,800.
The Late Mail LuncheonÂ® has supported worthy causes since its inception in 2005, by raising much- needed funds for those less fortunate. In 2011, Focus Individualised Support Services and the intellectually disabled will benefit from fundraising efforts. The Late Mail LuncheonÂ® has distributed in excess of $340,000 to charity to date.
Official Luncheon Ambassadors on the day will include Emily Krstina Santic (daughter of Tony Santic owner of Makybe Diva), Scott Cummings (former champion AFL player and Coleman Medalist) and Sharilea Hitchcock (mother, lawyer and racehorse owner). They will welcome guests on the day and help raise awareness for and on behalf of the intellectually disabled.
Now in it’s 6th year, the Late Mail LuncheonÂ® is one of the few racing events that brings together the racing industry and the general public in a relaxed, ambient and intimate event where everyone is welcome and guests are treated like VIP’s because tickets are limited to just 600 in total.
There is always a very good chance that you will end up sitting next to a star trainer, celebrity guest or VIP no matter where you are in the room.
The lunch is usurped only by the legendary and infamous Official After Party which kicks off immediately after the lunch concludes. Attendance to the Official After Party this year is by Invitation Only and is expected to run well into the early hours of the morning. For serious stayers only !
Tables of 10 and individual tickets are on sale now via the event website at latemaillunch.com
