With a sun-soaked venue, harbour views and a room full of beautifully dressed ladies, the Orsini Ladies Lunch at Mikano Restaurant was always set to be a huge success. 



Now in its 13th year, the event saw our King’s ladies treated to a delicious lunch, an array of exciting raffle prizes to bid on and a full goodie bag for every seat.

The relaxing afternoon proved a lovely way to catch up with friends and get to know other members of the King’s College community. Master of Ceremonies Hamish McKay did a superb job at entertaining the audience along with Friends Committee member Sharon Buckland who ensured the event ran seamlessly.  

The highlight of the afternoon was hearing from keynote speaker and Eat My Lunch founder, Lisa King. Lisa captivated the audience with her personal story behind Eat My Lunch, a business model that aims to alleviate Kiwi kids going hungry, one lunch at a time. To support Eat My Lunch this year, the Friends supplied one Eat My Lunch kids lunch for every Ladies Lunch ticket sold.

All further proceeds from the day are returned to the College to then be allocated to where most needed. Previous proceeds have gone towards the purchase of specialist clothing and gear for scholarship students and the much-needed re-fit of the School Prefects Common Room.

Thank you to Gold sponsor Orsini Fine Jewellery for their support in this event.
