Girls’ Night gala for good cause


William Woodworth

A gala geared to showcasing Marlborough’s craft scene is raising money for a good cause at the same time.

Scenic Hotel Marlborough is set to welcome people to a Friday night of fun for their Girls’ Gala evening.

With the free entry evening raising funds to support the Child Cancer Foundation, organisers hope people will come along and enjoy themselves.

General manager Carmel Horsley and event organiser Sam Proffit are eager to see all the creative ideas come to fruition.

“It’s a great time for us to put a fun Friday night on and invite locals to join us for a fun way to end their week with friends, family and fun.

“Especially as winter approaches, having something to do and reason to come out for a catchup is always a great way to start your weekend,” Sam says.

Throughout the evening, raffles and special food and drink being concocted for the event will all help raise vital funds for the charity.

Sam says that the eagerness of stallholders to come along has resulted in a long waiting list.

“There’s stalls and stallholders of all ages and styles from art made by hotel staff, Girls’ College entrepreneurial companies, to Marlborough made jewellery and boutique beauty products, so we’re keeping everything as local as possible.”

Carmel says she and Sam have been blown away by the eagerness of stallholders.

“It’s all about appreciating the great women in our lives – friends, partners, family and colleagues, and giving everyone a fun little reason to catch up.

“The Gala is not a girls-only zone, but a way we can collectively celebrate all of the amazing women that help make us the people we are today.

“The Child Cancer Foundation is a charity that Scenic Hotels champions, so the more we can do support them, the better.”

The Scenic Hotels Marlborough Girls Gala is on Friday 24 May from 5-8pm.
