Last Friday, the Oakleigh Grammar Parents’ Association held the highly successful Mother’s Day High Tea at Vanilla, that generously helped raise over $1500 for our students and School.
Over 80 mums, grandmothers, staff and very special women in our children’s lives attended the boutique event space that had been personally styled by our friend of the school, Jenny from JK Events. Jenny meticulously worked the day before and morning of the event to set floral centrepieces, a flower wall and balloon display giving the event the beautiful grandeur that all the women attending deserved.
The second part of the morning was presented by the lovely Melina Bagnato who gave a powerful and heartfelt speech on women’s empowerment and how to feel fashionable, energised and career driven while balancing a family.
Finally, the closing fun for the morning was presented in a 32 prize raffle draw, backed by 26 wonderful sponsors of the School. There were many laughs and giggles as each winner happily moved up to the stage to collect their prize, and there was even some redraw requests made in fun as some lucky winners claimed multiple prizes.
It truly was a memorable morning, filled with so much fun and we would like to thank our amazing Parent Association members for volunteering their time and putting this all together for us to enjoy. We also need to thank Jenny from JK Events, who styled the morning to perfection (please see the photos). Also a big thank you to Melina Bagnato and our 26 sponsors, including the Laser Clinics Australia for coming out and helping support our School. Added to this, we can’t forget to give a big thank you to Vanilla for hosting and providing a scrumptious spread of goodies…..did you see the gourmet fat chips and baklava, to die for?!
Finally a big thank you goes out to all the mums who attended and helped raise money to support our School. It was wonderful to share the morning with you all and see what a wonderful group of women we have backing Oakleigh Grammar, and all our students. We can’t wait to see you all next year!
