LIFT the LID - Hat Day Dinner Dance

Call it preparation for the Spring Carnival, call it a night out with your partner and friends, call it an excuse to hit the dance floor, but make certain you’re booked and there! (We only have 100 seats left). Cost: $35 per person.

Starting at 6.30pm and finishing at 9.30pm it’s a Big Night of Big Hats.

Includes St Leonards Big Band who were 3rd in the James Morrison Big Band Competition with Food and Fun, all to help support Australian Rotary Health.

So make your booking @ Milanos Brighton. Book online here.

Pick the hat, polish the dance shoes and loosen up for a great night at Milano’s Brighton.


Brighton Residents Boost Frankston Students

Then one day ...
