Fashion Parade Morning Tea raises $3,500 and plenty of smiles!
The National Council of Women of Qld held its annual fundraising morning tea fashion parade at the Brisbane Tattersalls Club on Thursday 13 October 2022.
Around 130 members and guests thoroughly enjoyed a morning of fashion by Soubret Pink and entertainment by Elspeth Peake and Adele Nisbet.
With NCWQ’s commitment to empowering women, we heard from 2022 Forum Communicators Bursary recipient Olivia Chissell and were pleased to host the showcase of the SOOMI’O scarf/pashmina collection.
The raffle prize pool was a staggering $3,500 and all funds raised at the event go towards the 2023 NCWQ bursary fund.
Guests indulged in delicious sweet and savoury delights and were treated to a ‘goodie bag’ with vouchers, Lucas paw paw ointment and a Neti shopping Bag.
Saalihah Seedat, one of the NCWQ committee members organising the event, said that the money raised at the morning tea went towards making a significant difference in the lives of women.
“This is one of our main fundraisers. To see our guests socialising at the morning tea, whilst being entertained and taking in the latest fashions, and knowing they’ve given their money to a good cause is just wonderful.”
NCWQ Bursaries are awarded to the successful Queensland female student applicants for one of the range of bursaries on offer each year. NCWQ Bursary Recipients demonstrate qualities of leadership; community service; perseverance; and determination, often despite life’s obstacles, to follow their personal and professional passions.
