Ladies day at High Tea fundraiser

LADIES, pull out your fascinators and your fancy hats to be whisked away to the races at the fourth annual Allora High Tea.

Tables are booking out fast for the fundraising event which has got bigger and better each year, with 2010 adding a different twist.

Organisers aim to raise funds for important charities Vision Australia, Ovarian Cancer and Angel Flight which all operate in our region.

The focus in 2010 is on relaxation, where guests dolled up in their racing best can sit back and relax while sipping on strawberries and champagne with tasty treats.

Guest compere Denise Quinn and race-caller Jason Fogerty will entertain at the event, taking guests through an afternoon of fun.

“This year will be a relaxed atmosphere with fashion on the fields and three race calls for entertainment,” organiser Sue Stevens said.

There are plenty of prizes to make your own in the multi-draw raffle or come as the best-dressed with the most interesting fascinator and take out another prize.

Sponsors Harvey Norman and National Australia Bank (NAB) have contributed to the event as well as help from local businesses.

To support the 2010 High Tea at the Races, visit a NAB in Allora or Clifton to book a table or purchase multi-draw tickets.

“It’s an opportunity to have a fun afternoon with family and friends,” Mrs Stevens said.

“Eat drink and be merry while helping out a charity.”
