The greatest indoor picnic Brisbane has ever seen

Brisbane's splendid City Hall will transform into the perfect outdoor setting, only indoors, complete with fake grass. So a gal needn't worry about the ants scurrying off with her picnic. The What a Woman Wants luncheon on Saturday 8 March, from 11am - 3pm will not only celebrate International Women's Day, but also raise money for Queensland's largest hospital, the RBWH.

Mr Treseder, RBWH Foundation CEO, said, "The event aims to bring together many of the elements that we believe Women Want comedy, music, good food, fashion and a spot of shopping all in an environment that promotes fun, friendship, relaxation and inspiration."

And there's a pretty exciting line up too. The day will be hosted by Melissa Western and Tnee Dyer, fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe with their hilarious 50's talk-back love radio inspired, jazz cabaret Sweet, Sour, and Saucy

Tickets for this unique event are on sale now for just $75 each, which includes a gourmet picnic hamper and piccolo of champagne.

Money raised from the picnic will go towards funding more essential medical research at the RBWH. Recently Professor Soo Keat Khoo from the Betty Byrne Henderson Women's Health Research Centre at RBWH completed a 10 year study on Women and Ageing, partly funded by money raised by the RBWH Foundation.

Professor Khoo found that whilst Brisbane women are ageing well, many aren't happy as they are living in isolation and can be suffering from depression. Professor Khoo will be presenting some of his research at the picnic. He believes that one of the greatest secrets of ageing well is find happiness through meaningful and happy connections with others, and this is exactly what the picnic is designed to do.

Gather together some of your gal pals, or come alone and meet some new ones, so we can all have a bit of a laugh, eat some gourmet goodies, relax and take in some fashion, and just generally enjoy each others company. With no worries about the weather, flies, ants, or anything!
