A lovely afternoon of fascinators, tiara's, laughs, bubbles and delicious delights

Another fabulous Winter Glam High Tea was had by all who attended the event on Sunday 30th July at Mulgoa Valley Receptions. Thank you to Phil and his staff for the wonderful food and service.
Thank you to our musician on the day Gwenda Davies, Registered Music Therapist at our Clinic and Harpist extraordinaire! And Photographer Simon Gould from Hilary Nathan Photography some of whose happy snaps are below.
There were some generous donations of gifts for our raffle including Warner Bros. Movie World, Giants Netball NSW, Lindt Chocolate, Sittano’s Bar and Restaurant, Mulgoa Valley Receptions, Panthers World of Entertainment, AMT Bowling and the generous donation of champagne that was enjoyed on the day. Congratulations to the winners of our raffles and games.
The funds raised from the High Tea go to our “Sandra Cogswell Scholarship”. The money from this scholarship will be applied to people in need of music therapy, so thank you to everyone for your generosity & support.
Also a BIG THANK YOU for their continued support in design “White River Design” and printing @Print, both local businesses in Penrith.
