Breakfast at Tiffany's in Comet

BLACKDOWN Seniors donned their pearls and little black dresses on Monday for a brunch at the Comet Rest in the true spirit of Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Helen Rix was shocked when she found out she had won Audrey Hepburn most look alike.

"It was very unexpected, considering that I am not young and beautiful any more like she was,” she said.

"My husband and I were looking forward to the event because we don't get out much any more during the day, we run our own business.

"It was nice getting together with some of the seniors and having the chance to catch up.”

Event organiser Una Oates said the event was spectacular.

"Everyone had smiles on their faces, the food was sensational, the music was great and we all looked fantastic,” she said.

"We were pleased with the response and large turnout. The music was definitely a highlight, it kept with the mood of the day and created such a great atmosphere.

"Everyone enjoyed socialising and dressing up like Audrey Hepburn.”
