A sea of pink lit up Rosehill Gardens on Saturday 13 March, 2021, as racegoers celebrated the Australian Turf Club’s (ATC) star-studded 2021 Pink Fashion Lunch supporting the McGrath Foundation. Kate & Co. PR managed publicity for the event, held on Chandon Ladies Day in aid of the McGrath Foundation.
Guests were treated to a spectacular three-course feast curated by Sokyo’s executive-chef, Chase Kojima, and were enamoured by an enthralling, runway display of Autumn racewear trends, presented by GlamCorner and styled by ATC partner stylist, Jessica Pecoraro.
For this season’s Women of Influence guest speaker series, MC Samantha Armytage welcomed the inspiring Actor & Director, Rachel Griffiths, Actress, Sharon Johal, and Domaine Chandon Estate Director, Susan Caudry to the stage to discuss their journey to success.
Longines Golden Slipper Carnival Ambassador, Candice Warner, cricketing legend Steve Smith, and wife, Dani Willis also attended the Pink Fashion Lunch to show their support of the McGrath Foundation.
Before formalities concluded, ARIA award-winning recording artist, Christine Anu took to the stage to deliver an emotional and poignant performance, moving guests with her hit, My Island Home.
Kate & Co. PR successfully managed all talent interviews and media calls, securing Channel 7 News, Channel 9 News, Sky News, News.com.au (syndicated nationally) Sunday Telegraph, Sunday Herald Sun and Daily Mail.
The McGrath Foundation raised more than $37,000 from the event, which will go to the foundation's Breast Care nurses who provide invaluable support to patients and their families.
Kate & Co. PR is thrilled at the result and is proud to have supported the ATC and the McGrath Foundation in their efforts.
