High Tea and bubbles for a good cause

Copious cups of kindness will be flowing for a good cause when local fundraising group, The Swichettes, partner with the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation to host a High Tea in October.

On this occasion, tea and coffee will not be the only beverages being served, as champagne is also on the menu along with a wonderful selection of savoury and sweet selections.

The event is being held on Saturday, 12 October from 2pm to 5pm in the Phoenix Room at Ipswich Girls Grammar School.

Director and chair of The Alison Baden-Clay Foundation Vanessa Fowler encourages the community to come along and enjoy the afternoon which will feature Channel 7 presenter Sammie O’Brien as MC. 

There will be a fashion parade by well-known Australian designer Maiocchi and a major raffle prize, which is a two night stay at any of the Spicers Retreats, including breakfast daily.

Tickets are just $65 for the formal high tea with a complimentary beverage on arrival, or $600 for a table of 10.

Ms Fowler was named Ipswich Citizen of the Year for 2019 in recognition of her community work through The Allison Baden-Clay Foundation. 

In this role, she has raised awareness both in Ipswich and the broader community through Strive to be Kind Day. 

This event is being held in order to allow the Ipswich community to show their support of the Foundation and share the message of kindness throughout the city.

Strive to be Kind Day is held in July each year and encourages people to wear yellow to remember Allison Baden-Clay and to support efforts to educate about the signs of domestic and family violence.
