    SKYY Vodka!

    It’s simple really, I’ve never missed LQP and would love to continue the tradition. My best friend is visiting from Canada and I would like to take her to the event to show her what she’s missing out on – the life in South Africa is reason enough to move back home!!

    Help me make her homesick and show her how fun it is to be in Cape Town! What better way than a day at the races! :)

    Been excited about this event since attending last year. The holidays however have not been kind on my wallet so a free ticket for my friends and I would be the cherry on top to end off the holidays in Style (pun intended). I have also always lost money at horse racing events but I feel this may be my lucky year. The odds must be in my favour by now!

    I’m going to try throw in for extra brownie points here by saying that I visit your blog daily and rate it the best blog in South Africa. Your humour & up to date information you supply is excellent. ☺

    Hi

    Skyy Vodka!

    Being described as ” a day of top racing and people watching (and) a glam, sunbronzed crowd”. This will be our main reason for attending the LQP.

    We a group of young dynamic individuals that would love to experience the festivities of the LQP as none of us have had the opportunity to attend the LQP before. Being from Jhb we would love to see how things are done in Cape Town as we head back to Jhb on Sunday..

    I hope we get the opportunity to “Raise a glass. Better yet, raise the bar” with you & Skyy.

    Thanks
    Kyle

    It’s my birthday on Sunday and the LQP would be an awesome way to bring it in! After coming home to a broken unto house on Sunday, having to replace my car tyre on Monday and my car not starting on Tuesday. This would be a great end to a bang average week!

    SKYY Vodka is the sponsor. And the reason why I want to attend this event with my friends, is because we always say we will but than we lose track. But now we have a chance to attend this prestigious event!

    Hey Daddy

    SKYY Vodka is a sponsor.

    I have two reasons:

    I invited some clients to join me at the LQP and I forgot to book tickets (not sure if I can still book but I am in trouble…)

    If I win I will return the favour with wearing the most fabulous outfit (cause that is what is all about right)

    My friends and I have been wanting to attend for years, but with kids and new marriages, the timing was never right…this year our calendars are free, our kids are grown and husbands are content with the ladies having an arvie by themselves…how much more perfect can it get?

    Because: Queens Plate is one of the best events on Cape Town’s social calender !! I already have my tickets because I prioritise this event annually- BUT my broke friends would CERTAINLY benefit from me able to give them free tickets.. Making the entire event more festive! Because it’s more fun with friends!!:)

    SKYY Vodka is the official sponsor.

    My friends and I have been looking forward to experiencing this event for years, but have never been able to get tickets in time due to the festive season taking up our time. This year, as both couples are getting married this year, our minds were more pre-occupied.
    We would love to be a part of this glamorous event amongst Cape Town’s finest! But our budgets do not allow this dream to be possible in this moment in our lives!!
    Please allow us this opportunity, as I love to play dress up and be social!
