The Women of the Vine Christmas Luncheon intends to raise much-needed funds for Careflight Toowoomba in style. A three-course lunch, fruity cocktails and divine red and white wine will be served to tables of guests on 20th November. It is an opportunity to catch up with old friends, establish news ones and, excitingly, listen to guest speaker and renowned fashion designer Sacha Drake.

Sacha joins the luncheon to encourage generous donation to CareFlight Toowoomba’s mission costs. The organisation is well known for its blue and yellow choppers that swoop down to help hundreds of sick of injured patients throughout the year. Many of these CareFlight missions can be the difference between life and death, with an average of three patient incidents per day.

As each intervention commonly costs $12,500, the work of these flying doctors and their iconic choppers relies heavily on donations. The Christmas Luncheon event recognises that the south west region was the busiest across CareFlight last year and is excited to host such an important, community oriented event.


With guest speaker Sacha Drake, designer and director of the SACHA DRAKE label, guests will be treated to the story of her passion of fitting and flattering the bodies of modern women. Since her humble beginnings, Drake has aimed to inspire confidence and shared values of “authenticity, passion, originality and quality” in women of all body shapes.

At the luncheon, support can be shown by way of donation or raffle prizes. Tickets can be purchased for $130 per person. For all bookings or to would support this event, please contact: or phone (07) 4631 3700.
