NESTLED among the trees in picturesque Montville, Secrets on the Lake provides the perfect backdrop for a classy Melbourne Cup Day luncheon.
And when it comes to raceday headwear for this lunch, it's the crazier the better.
Secrets of the Lake owners George and Aldy Johnston are set to join forces with the Zonta Club of Blackall Range to raise money and have a good time on Melbourne Cup Day.
Mrs Johnston said the charity lunch would begin at 11.30am, with guests treated to canapes and a complimentary drink upon arrival.
"There will be a two-course meal; main and dessert," Mrs Johnston said.
"The food will be well worth it and there will be a big-screen TV to watch the Melbourne Cup."
The day costs $50 with proceeds going to Zonta.
The Blackall Range Zonta Club vice-president Audrey Lyttle said Zonta was an international organisation that worked to advance the status of women and children through service and advocacy.
"Our Zonta Club has 21 dedicated members who work or own their own business," Mrs Lyttle said.
"We raised $12,000 last year, which went to women's foundations, organisation on the Range, local refuges, women in Ethiopia and a scholarship for a student to study.
"We hope to raise as much money as we can to benefit the community and to promote justice and universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms."
Mrs Johnston has herself been a member of Zonta for many years, and hopes the charity lunch will be a success.
"I'm praying for nice fine weather, but it's beautiful down here whatever the weather," she said.
The first Zonta club was established in Buffalo, New York in 1919
The Blackall Range club was formed on January 22, 1997
