The Grafton Gals in Pink at Biggest Morning Tea



After the recent torrential weekend storms, the sun decided to shine on a glorious Winter’s day, just in time for a Biggest Morning Tea under the trees at McKenzie Reserve in Grafton.
Ladies from the newly-formed group ‘The Grafton Gals’ assembled for an invigorating Zumba class led by Studio One Dance Academy’s super-fit Gail Harding. Then it was on for one and all as guests arrived wearing all shades of pink, to have a cuppa and a chat with friends old and new.
The silent auction was vigorously contested, with prizes donated by over a dozen Grafton businesses. Highlight was a ladies wristwatch courtesy of Proud’s. The 1-100 lucky draw was won by a delighted Roz Palmer.
Throughout the fundraiser, guests were serenaded by the dulcet tones of well-known flautist, Helen Hearnshaw.
Finger food provided by guests was delicious, most popular being Julie Dickson’s mouth-watering micro-mini-cheesecakes.
Scrumptious soup donated by Toast together with Hank’s donation of fresh bread rolls were both eagerly consumed as a heart-warming brunch.
Hostess Helen Tucker was delighted with the event, which raised well over $500.
“The Cancer Council was so supportive during my recent cancer journey. I simply wanted to say thank you.”
