THE Bubbly Charity is encouraging women to dress the part for a most-civilised fund-raiser this weekend — an $80-a-head afternoon tea in the rose garden of the Albury Club.
“A lot of girls have dresses they wear to races and never wear again, so we thought here’s an opportunity to wear them again,” Bubbly Charity president Sue White said.
All funds raised will go to Border not-for-profit group Country Hope, which helps the families of children with life-threatening illnesses.
Bubbly Charity president Sue White said their group, which is made up of several Border women, hosted regular fund-raisers for different Albury-Wodonga charities and community groups.
They chose to make Country Hope the beneficiary of their garden party after reading in The Border Mail about its struggle for funding.
Bubbly Charity has donated about $96,000 back into the community over six years.
Mrs White said the garden party would be an informal event of relaxing in the garden while enjoying finger food, Cofield wines and music from Border performer Sandy Worrall.
The garden party is from 3pm to 6.30pm on Saturday.
Tickets are available with bookings preferred. Contact Mrs White on 0403 291 061, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
