Over 100 members of the local community and guests of the Bayview Boulevard Hotel in Sydney gathered at the hotel’s 25th floor restaurant on Friday 28 May to join over 1 million Australians attending an Australia’s Biggest Morning Teas to raise money for Cancer Council.
The event kicked off at 10am with guests being were treated to a variety of pastries, sandwiches, fruit and cakes alongside a number of beverages including barista teas and coffees, whilst being able to relax and take in the panoramic view of the city skyline and harbour available from the restaurant’s top floor location.
Alongside Cancer Council’s national competition to win a holiday for two to Europe for every $10 donation, guests were able to enter a raffle and bid for silent auction items kindly donated by local businesses and organisations including David Brown Graphics, Sydney Swans, Canterbury Bulldogs, Hurley Suftwear and Lindt Chocolates.
Whilst having held six previous Biggest Morning Teas for their staff, this was the hotel’s first Morning Tea open to their guests and the public. As a result Katie Froggatt, Executive Secretary & Marketing Assistant for the hotel, was pleased to announce on Monday that they had broken all previous amounts raised and managed to collect $2459.10 for Cancer Council from their event.

“Everyone in attendance had a fantastic time and the sense of community spirit as we all came together in pursuit of a common goal was just fantastic. We’d like to thank everyone who attended and all our corporate sponsors that contributed to our Morning Tea.”
Thus far over $535,000 has been banked in the Metropolitan Sydney region from Australia’s Biggest Morning Teas held throughout the month of May.
