Celebration to benefit charity

Chloe FraserBusselton Dunsborough Times

Community members donned their best spring racing attire on Tuesday in celebration of the race that stops the nation.

Guests were treated to a day of live music, fashion, food and festivities at Hyde Park in Busselton with all proceeds from the Melbourne Cup event going to Conquer Cystic Fibrosis South West.

The volunteer-run charity helps to fund research to improve and extend the lives of more than 3300 Australians with cystic fibrosis.

The day saw Perth-based rock band The Sheds perform live, fashions on the field judging, live auctions, sweepstakes and a range of spring canapes served by Laundry 43’s Catering Line.
