Mother’s Day High Tea 2017
This year, our famous Mother’s Day High Tea will be held on Saturday 6 May, 2017 between 2-5pm. We are again looking forward to hosting a wonderful event in recognition of mothers, grandmothers, aunties, big sisters and women everywhere who provide strong role modelling to the next generation.
Our fundraising this year will to support Ovarian Cancer Charities by recognising the two charities – The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation and, Ovarian Cancer Australia. These charities have been chosen as they represent the cross section of need for Ovarian Cancer fundraising – with OCRF providing much needed support towards the research of diagnosis and treatment for Ovarian Cancer, and Ovarian Cancer Australia supporting women living with ovarian cancer.
One woman dies every 10 hours from Ovarian Cancer, and approximately 1500 Australian Women are diagnosed with the disease each year – most of them with an advanced stage of the disease. The five year survival rate of those with an Ovarian Cancer diagnosis is less than half that of a Breast Cancer diagnosis (43% compared with 90%), thus making research in this area crucial.
Thanks to our amazing community, this event has now SOLD OUT.
