We are a family forever changed by a 'fighting childhood cancer' journey. Our Evie Grace, diagnosed in August 2013, just after her 2nd birthday, battled through chemo, surgery, immunotherapy, radiation, relapse and various other measures of survival for just over 4 years. She gained her angel wings in December, 2017. Through it all we have supported the Kids' Cancer Project, and will continue to do so, even in the wake of her loss.
Through our story we have connected with many other families, unwillingly penning a similar story to their pages, all in need of support, love and understanding.
We started High Tea for a High Cause, to bring together our local community of Western Sydney, gathering support and building awareness for the many families facing the reality of childhood cancer everyday. But most importantly, the aim of this yearly prestigious event is to raise funds for the Kids' Cancer Project. We are proud to put on this event every year and this year we do it in honour of Evie Grace. We look forward to pushing it to be bigger and better each time, as we will never lose our passion for raising money to help find a cure. If you would like to be involved in any way, either as a sponsor or event volunteer, please get in touch here. We look forward to hearing from you.
High Tea & Auction
The High Tea
Our aim is to create a classy and enjoyable environment for all our supporters and participants in our fundraising endeavours. We don't shy away from quality when it comes to our High Teas; A perfectly presented array of delicate finger foods that will surely tantalise those with a weakness for scones, and sweet treats, though not to deter those who prefer savoury, our delicate balance of savoury and sweet ensures everyone can enjoy the home baked delights. Not to mention our selection of tea and coffee, and glass of bubbly on arrival.
Local Business and creatives alike
Along side a beautiful High Tea we encourage local businesses and creatives alike to book a spot and set up a market stall to engage with the community, get exposure for their business and support a great cause. They will also donate a prize for our raffles and a percentage of their proceeds (at their discretion) will be forwarded onto TKCP. Our High Tea guests are able to peruse the stalls, get to know local businesses and purchase anything they fancy, knowing the price tag serves a very high cause. In the past, these market stalls have included hand-made jewellery, homewares, fresh florals, bouquets made to order, hand-lettered prints, greeting cards, succulent pots, hand-made knits and more. Click here to inquire about booking a spot.
Raffle & Door Prize
Our guests also have the opportunity to purchase raffles tickets on the day, and included in the purchase of every High Tea ticket is a chance to win the lucky door prize, drawn at the event. Again all proceeds are forwarded onto TKCP. Donations for the raffle and door prize often include some chosen products from our Market Stalls along side smaller contributions like hand-made candles, vouchers, wine, home-made baked goods and more.
The auction is the pinnacle of our High Tea events, and gives our guests a huge opportunity to make significant donations in exchange for high end items such as artworks, photography packages, branding packages, signed football jerseys and more. We will release more information about how our auction will run closer to the event.
Money and Credit Card handling on the day: You will receive a tally card on entry to our High Tea, where you can keep track of all your donations, raffle tickets and purchases from the auction. At point of sale you or one of our team members will write out the item and its price on your tally card. At the end of the event you can go to one of our dedicated 'Pay Here' stations to reconcile your purchases. These 'Pay Here' stations will give you the option of paying by cash or Credit Card. The Credit Card option is completed on an iPad where you simply fill out your details via a secure online third party called Stripe (we do not collect or hold onto your personal information and we respect your privacy). You can also make additional donations at these 'Pay Here' stations.
Please note the Market Stalls will run their own sales on the day and therefore you do not need to include your purchases with them on your tally card. They may have Credit Card facilities or you may have to pay cash depending on how they choose to run their stalls.
If you can't make the event but would still like to contribute, please see our donation page here. All donations are processed via a secure online third party called Stripe (we do not collect or hold onto your personal information and we respect your privacy).
