The Ultimate Girly High Tea – Final tickets on sale now!

We’ve sold 200 tickets. And now, thanks to the Sofitel (and their willingness to reconfigure the room!) we are releasing a final 50 tickets to the Ultimate Girly High Tea on Sunday 1st May from 10am – midday at the Brisbane Sofitel Hotel.  The purpose of the event is to raise money for the Premier’s Disaster Relief Fund (to help all those people who were impacted by the floods and Cyclone Yasi).  But the day is also about celebrating the resilience of Queensland women.  So if you’re partial to a lemon tart (and, let’s be honest, who isn’t?) — come and have high tea with us and some of our favourite Australian women.
