High tea fundraiser at­tracts im­pres­sive crowd

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

FASH­ION, fun and prizes were all the rage at the Sal­va­tion Army’s High Tea and run­way show fundraiser on Sun­day .

No seats were left empty with 64 guests at­tend­ing the event and an im­pres­sive to­tal raised for the Red Shield Ap­peal.

Sal­va­tion Army Cannonvale Fam­ily Store man­ager, Denise Norder said a to­tal of $2200 was raised.

“The money will go to­wards so­cial ser­vices in­clud­ing the drug and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre in Townsville and the women’s refuge in Mackay,” she said.

Five mod­els strut­ted their stuff and wore gar­ments avail­able at the store.

“The mod­els ranged from ages 14- 50 and they all had lots of fun,” Ms Norder said.

“They’re very keen to do it again next year.”

Ms Norder said guests were pleas­antly sur­prised at the stan­dard of cloth­ing put on show by the mod­els.

“A lot of peo­ple didn’t re­alise we had such high qual­ity gar­ments in the store,” she said.

With food aplenty and a brightly dec­o­rated venue, Ms Norder said the day was a com­plete suc­cess.

“We had a lot of sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses in the way of do­na­tions and auc­tion items,” she said.

“The bid­ding went well and every­one had a great time.

“The over­all opin­ion of the day was very pos­i­tive.”
