Sunshine Beach Real Estate and Sunshine Beach Surf Lifesaving Club have joined forces to host a morning tea in support of those impacted by cancer.

Raising funds for Cancer Council, the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event will be on Thursday 3 June from 9.30am to 11.30am at Sunshine Beach Surf Life Saving Clubs’ Function Room.

Sunshine Beach Real Estate principal, Pip Covell said it was a privilege to host the event.

“We’ve hosted the morning tea every year, except last year due to Covid, since 2003. The whole community looks forward to it every year,“ she said.

“This year is a little different to previous years where we’ve held a casual morning tea on the footpath in front of our office, but we are very excited to be hosting a more formal morning tea event, with the support of the Sunshine Beach Surf Club.“

Pip said everyone knows someone that has been affected by cancer.

“We are pleased to support such an important cause and raise much needed funds for cancer research to help save lives,“ she said.

Half of the ticket sale proceeds will go to the Cancer Council and the other half to the Surf Club for their generously discounted catering costs.

Raffle tickets are $2 each and can be purchased at the Sunshine Beach Real Estate office at 36 Duke St, Sunshine Beach in the lead up to the event, or on the day at the morning tea.

Raffle sales go towards the fundraising efforts and you don’t need to be there on the day to be a winner.

There are only 150 tickets available and sales will close on 24 May. They can be purchased on Eventbrite at https://bit.ly/3eQ393a
