Keeping in view the choice of their members, the wonderful hostesses Farah Ilyas, Mehriya Omer, Zahra Hussain, Attia Fatima, Mamoona Qasim and Misbah Khwaja selected Lahore Chatkhara Multan to hold their party.
On 12th October, a Hi-tea with magnificent menu was laid at Lahore Chatkhara Multan by these ladies. Interestingly, all the hostesses belong to Khawaja family and it was their first time together to arrange a party on the platform of 'friends of SOS'. According to their family tradition, they did their best.
There was a prize for the best unusual hairstyle and dressing, under 'Zrra hatt k' theme. A generous dinner voucher of 2000 rupees awaited any member who dared to flaunt her uniqueness and eccentricity to keep up with theme. Mrs. Rabia Bosan, Anjum Hameed and Aasma Ather was requested to play judges. Fariha Munir Shah was selected as first prize winner for wearing Kaftaan and crimped hair. Whereas, Mahnaz Fareed and Sidra were declared second and third, respectively.
There was also a unique offer made for this themed party by Itrat Gillani. All the members participating in this competition could get their hairstyles done from her parlour in 500 rupees, only. A lot of members took advantage of this opportunity, including the winner of the first prize. Special thanks to Itrat for this special discount.
The life and soul of SOS, the mother Teresa of the city of saints, Mahnaz Fareed addressed the gathering and informed, SOS villages Pakistan have completed 40 years of services. SOS Multan is going to commemorate the event on 5th December with an elaborate Black and White themed, formal, sit down dinner and a jazz musical night with Coke studio star, Sara Haider. Mahnaz went on to share with all the friends of SOS present there, the efforts she is making, to create a romantic, beautiful ambiance, to be remembered forever by Multani-ites. She urged everybody to be a part of it, as it is an event not to be missed.
We wish Mahnaz and all her team mates (working on this project), the very best of luck! Also request all the visitors of this blogpost to buy invitations for this majestic, never seen before kind of event. Which are available at a donation of 5000 rupees.
Back to the party; the hostesses remained at their toes to attend all the guests, extending their kind hospitality on individual level. What else can be said about it, except that the best of people throw best of parties. Thank you ladies for planning and throwing a perfectly wonderful party.
