City/Country Mothers’ Weekend

A wonderful time was had by all at the City/Country Mothers’ Weekend away. Orange really turned on some beautiful weather for us and the 95 women who descended on this charming town to enjoy great food, wine and company throughout the weekend.

We started out with a casual dining experience on Friday night at the Union Bank Hotel. Saturday morning was all about relaxation before heading off to Heifer Station Vineyard to sample some palate-pleasing wines. After this hard work we moved on to our long lunch courtesy of Molong Farm, for the very fresh cuisine, and Philip Shaw Wines, for the gorgeous venue and wines to match the menu. The weekend finale was an enjoyable Sunday alfresco brunch in the grounds of Racine Restaurant. A perfect way to farewell Orange before heading home – we are already thinking about where we might go in 2018!

We are also delighted to report that through the generous raffle ticket sales to all the mums who attended we were able to raise $790.00 to contribute to the Mary Ward International Foundation which is a  terrific outcome.

Thanks to the organising team: Sara Roche, Alison Perosin, Lisa McEvoy, Louise Wytenburg and Sue Whipps. Finally, special thanks to our local host Sim Madigan for sharing her passion and love for this region with  us over the weekend.  When can we come back?!
