FRIDAY 11 March will be a day of celebration when BreastScreen Queensland Toowoomba and the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation present the second La Bonne Vie lunch in aid of breast cancer support.

Health Promotion Officer Shenaed Bliss said the event would provide a great opportunity to enjoy a taste of luxury in the beautiful surrounds of Gips Restaurant.

"We're very proud to present an afternoon of all things French, in conjunction with the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation, and our major sponsor Create Financial Solutions," Ms Bliss said.

"La Bonne Vie means 'the good life' so the menu will feature exquisite French champagne and cuisine. It will definitely be an occasion to remember with live music, auctions, entertainment and raffles with a holiday to be won on the day. " Support for the inaugural event last year was overwhelming so we look forward to seeing some familiar faces and plenty of new ones as well.

"Our guest speaker will be local blogger Julie, from online breast cancer support network 'Boobin-a-box' and we'll also be joined again by renowned jewellery designer Kiron Barui, whose creations have been stocked at Harrod's in London, featured at London Fashion Week and seen in fashion magazines around the world."

The La Bonne Vie late luncheon will be held from 1pm-5pm, Friday 11 March at Gips Restaurant, Toowoomba.

Tickets are $110 and include lunch, champagne and other basic beverages, goody bags and entertainment. All proceeds go to the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation to assist with breast cancer support.
