Stamford Plaza Melbourne Hosts Charity High Tea to Help Break the Cycle of Family Violence

Stamford Plaza Melbourne will be opening up their doors on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May 2015, to host an exclusive high tea fundraiser for McAuley Community Services for Women's family violence program.

Guests will enjoy a sparkling High Tea with an assortment of meticulously crafted savoury bites, fluffy homemade scones and traditional finger sandwiches served on an elegant three-tiered stand. It will be made all the more luxurious with a tantalising Pavlova Bar, indulgent Chocolate Fountain and a raffle where entrants go into the draw to win a high tea for two plus a deluxe hamper of goodies.

McAuley Community Services for Women is a small but impactful charity that works to protect women and their children from family violence. They operate Victoria's only accessible safe house open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing crisis accommodation to those in need.

"Reading the astonishing figures that 81women died last year through family violence and weren't able to enjoy Mother's Day celebration with friends and family is heartbreaking. The high tea is the perfect opportunity to come to Stamford Plaza Melbourne, enjoy an outing together and simultaneously raise awareness and contribute much needed funds to the charity so they can continue their incredible work."Adam Hamilton, General Manager, Stamford Plaza Melbourne.

A percentage of proceeds from the high tea will go towards the initiative along with all sales from the raffle.

The charitable event will be held on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May 2015 at Stamford Plaza Melbourne from 1pm-4pm. Tickets are $59 and include sparkling wine.

Bookings are essential. To make a reservation, call 03 9659 1592, or go to
