The only thing better than a long ladies' lunch is when you're doing it for charity.

Sydney's social set made their way to Hotel Centennial in Woollahra, on Wednesday to raise money for Barnardos.

Hosted by committee members Carla Farah, Kim Hedich, Stephanie Conley, Maree Andrews, Phoebe Malouf, Emma Steele and Marly Boyd, and emceed by pregnant Laura Csortan, more than 100 guests, including Kathryn Eisman, Rebecca Vallance and Real Housewives of Sydney personality Kristy Marsh, braved the rain for a spectacular lunch created by executive chef, Justin North and plenty of bubbles.

Raising over $65,000, the raffle prizes were just as impressive as the floral arrangements, with gifts donated by Hermes, Chanel, Parlour X and Boytash Jewellery.
