Lawyer wins party dress!

Lawyer wins party dress!

Friday, 21. December 2012 - 15:00

Members and guests gathered at the atmospheric Restaurante Nueva Kaskada, where renowned chef, Ewald Fichthaler, had created some appetising dishes for the 2012 Rotary Club Marbella-Guadalmina Christmas Dinner.

Our gorgeous raffle ticket sellers, Marie and Maria, had been so effective in parting us from our money that there was much anticipation when the raffle began.

As our President, Lorraine Powell, was suffering from the after effects of bronchitis, President Elect, Einar Askvig, gallantly took to the stage to manage the draw. Einar, and his wife Siren, were amongst the delighted winners more than once. This begged the question if he had the magic touch or did they just buy an awful lot of tickets?  

While Siren graciously returned a bottle of champagne to the draw, it was one of the last prizes that led to much speculation at our table and elsewhere in the room. Which of them would wear the dress?

The possible combination of high powered lawyer and sexy black dress - see below - was most intriguing.

Shortly afterwards, our Past President, Paul Church, went potty - bidding for the magnificent ceramic pot that he eventually took home. We wait with bated breath to see if her Presidential status in the Club will affect Lorraine's future luck in our tombolas.......

In the meantime, En Navidad y el Ano Nuevo, mucha alegria y felicidad.


Suits you sir. You wear it well!
