High Tea with Class

A touch of class is what Stamford Plaza Melbourne is offering supporters of McAuley Community Services for Women on May 30 and 31 as part of the High Tea Appeal. The Stamford Plaza Melbourne will open its doors on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May 2015, to host an exclusive high tea fundraiser for our organisation as part of our month-long appeal.

Guests will enjoy a sparkling High Tea with an assortment of meticulously crafted savoury bites, fluffy homemade scones and traditional finger sandwiches served on an elegant three-tiered stand. It will be made all the more luxurious with a tantalising pavlova bar, indulgent chocolate fountain and a raffle where entrants go into the draw to win a high tea for two plus a deluxe hamper of goodies.

Adam Hamilton, General Manager, Stamford Plaza Melbourne, said his organisation supported McAuley Community Services for Women because of its programs and services that protect women and their children from family violence, particularly Victoria’s only accessible safe house open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing crisis accommodation to those in need.

“Reading the astonishing figures that 81women died last year through family violence and won’t be able to enjoy Mother’s Day celebration with friends and family is heartbreaking. The high tea is the perfect opportunity to come to Stamford Plaza Melbourne, enjoy an outing together and simultaneously raise awareness and contribute much needed funds to the charity so they can continue their incredible work,” Mr Hamilton said.

A percentage of proceeds from the high tea will go to McAuley Community Services for Women along with all sales from the raffle.

The charitable event will be held on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May 2015 at Stamford Plaza Melbourne from 1pm-4pm. Tickets are $59 and include sparkling wine.
