On Sunday, 19 May Bloomhill Cancer Help will host its inaugural ‘High Tea for a Bloomhill Good Cause’ event at the spectacular Flaxton Gardens.
Cupcakes, croquet and fine china will set the scene from 2pm to 5pm for an afternoon infused with good food, good wine and good company including WIN Weather Presenter Hannah McEwan who will be MC, cancer survivor and councillor Jenny McKay, and rising star, singer-songwriter Lucy Hannah.
The event is the brainchild of an enthusiastic team of University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) public relations students, working with PR firm Reflected Image PRoductions.The students are planning on hosting the event as part of their studies and to raise much-needed funds for Bloomhill.
USC student Emma O’Mara said the team was very excited to be putting their studies into practice by planning and running the high tea event.
“The event will celebrate the bone between all women – mothers, daughters, sisters and friends – all in a relaxed yet elegant setting.
“It’s a bond that is never underrated, but majorly under-celebrated,” Miss O’Mara said.
Bloomhill General Manager, Mervat Thompson said they were delighted about the students’ event plans.
“We are really looking forward to it and touched that they have chosen to raise awareness and much-needed funds for Bloomhill as part of their studies,” Ms Thompson said.
“They’ll be helping us help hundreds of people with cancer on the Coast.”
