Brisbane residents will make every cup count on Thursday May 22 at morning teas throughout the city and the Stamford Plaza will join millions of everyday Aussies putting the kettle on for the 21st Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea!
Channel 7’s Liz Cantor and 96Five Family Show’s Liam Renton will host the high tea, where guests will hear from an inspiring cancer survivor and the Cancer Council’s Professor Joanne Aitken.
Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson, Katie Clift said the Stamford Plaza Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea would be Brisbane’s premier morning tea event.
“Each year around 24,000 Queenslanders are diagnosed with cancer and sadly, around 8000 Queenslanders will die from the disease,” Ms Clift said.
“We’re encouraging all Brisbanites to join us for a riverside morning tea, sampling the very best high tea buffet delights from the incredible chefs at Stamford Plaza.
“By purchasing a ticket and attending – you’re supporting the one in two Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85.”
All funds raised from Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea events are invested in cancer research, prevention and early detection programs and patient support services, such as accommodation facilities.
