Lake Cathie Raiders Rugby League Football Club have celebrated Raiders Ladies Day 2021 on July 31

It was a frocks day out at the footy as Lake Cathie Raiders Rugby League Football Club celebrated Ladies Day on Saturday.

Local ladies dressed in style for the 'Frocks At The Footy' event at Lake Cathie Sporting Fields.

The Raiders played Long Flat Dragons, but all the action was off the field with raffles, fashion contests and a luncheon.

Jennifer Black was crowned best dressed alongside most quirky dressed, Julia Mortlock.

Tiana Smith-Kelly won the raffle major prize, Julia Mortlock won the second major prize and door prizes were awarded to Clio Martusciello, Ashleigh Kelly and Jayne Burton.

Event organiser Leanne Franklin said around 40 people attended the festivities on the day.

"The sun was out and it was a beautiful day. A number of businesses supported us with donations for fundraising," Mrs Franklin said

"We first set out to do it because we are in a rebuilding year and we want the Raiders to be a community group, not just a footy club. We want it to be welcoming for families and ladies.

"Saturday was way more than what we expected, it was pretty overwhelming. It was an awesome day and certainly we are looking to run it again next year.

Mrs Franklin said the day also fundraised $1740 towards a member of the local community.

"We want to make sure we acknowledged somebody locally before a national organisation and we nailed it," she said.

The day was organised by the Lake Cathie Raiders committee and Lake Cathie - Bonny Hills Lions Club.
