FIFTY-FOUR ladies went along to Lightbox Espresso and Wine Bar on Saturday to support the Rotary Club of Gladstone's ladies long table lunch function.

The event raised funds for the Safe Haven animal shelter in Mount Larcom and Gladstone women's shelter.

"We focused on a women's cause because it's a ladies luncheon today, and also most people like animals, so we thought we'd go neutral and go for animals," Rotary member Helen Curran said.

The club intends to run a bigger event next year for its third annual event, and is already looking for community support. 

Ms Curran said she was blown away by the support of the Gladstone community.

This year's lunch included a fashion parade by La Moda and guests walked away with goodie bags, prizes and a chance to win return airfares from Gladstone, plus two nights accommodation in Brisbane.
