BRIS | Charity High Tea Event **ON HOLD**
Charity High Tea - with Dame Quentin Bryce
If you have enjoyed our much loved Christmas Charity Luncheon, you won’t want to miss this event. Our inaugural Charity High Tea set in the beautiful Frangipani Ballroom. Catch up with long time friends. It typifies the art of mixing business with pleasure – celebrate the approaching end of Financial Year and celebrate all for a worthy cause.
You will be met with a glass of Mumm Petit Cordon on arrival. Network with friends, visit the networking lounge, quality shopping, and relax with your colleagues and friends. You will then be seated and served with an exquisite High Tea. Sit back and enjoy the Q&A with our distinguished Guest Speaker Dame Quentin Bryce.
There will be prizes galore in the Charity Raffle (don’t forget your change), great food and fabulous opportunities to meet like minded business women just like yourself who love to network.
I am delighted to advise, that The Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO will be our guest speaker at this Charity High Tea, proudly supporting Women’s Legal Services Queensland.

Our Charity – Women’s Legal Services Queensland
Women’s Legal Service is dedicated to creating safer futures for Queensland families impacted by domestic violence. Our small staff team and over 100 volunteers provide free legal and welfare help to women and their children who are often living in fear. Our State-wide Helpline, drop-in sessions, outreach and hospital programs provide over 30,000 vital services each year. However due to increasing community need, 40% of calls for help can’t be answered. Everyone deserves to live in safety and our aim is to ensure help is there when it is needed most. Thank you for your important support.
