Perth High Tea 2014
November 9, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
240 guests attended the 2014 PKSFA Vintage High Tea, held at the Perth Town Hall on Sunday 9th November. The event was sold out within 5 days of being advertised.
Guests were greeted with a glass of champagne and escorted to their table. The table settings were eloquently set by Antiquitea and the food was served by the year 9 girls from Iona Presentation College.
The event commenced with a short video, featuring our PKS children, about PKS and the Foundation. Nic Acquarola welcomed the guests and formally opened the event.
Perth’s own current Australian Winter Olympian and World champion Lucy Chaffer and Federal Minister Melissa Parke were our special guests. The event was expertly run by ABC radio announcer Gillian O’Shaughnessy. Guests were also entertained with a fashion parade.
Over 110 raffle prizes and 28 silent auction items were kindly donated to help with our fundraising. Kailis Jewellers generously donated a diamond a pearl pendant valued at $4000 which was our highlight auction item.
The event would not have had the success it achieved if it was not for the commitment and dedication of Nino D’Alo, Maria Mariano, Sonia Grandile, Chiara Courtney, Sandra Seman-Burke, Keane Burke, and Tanya Sucur.
Money raised would be used to help provide much-needed physiotherapy equipment, and services to the PKS individuals.
A big thank you to all the guests that attended, to the volunteers and to all the generous donors. Without their support the event would not have been as successful as it was.
Nic and Terzita Acquarola
