“Supporting Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an easy, fun and delicious way that we can work together to help beat cancer,” Ms McMillan said.

“All funds raised at Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea enable us to invest vital funds into cancer research, prevention and local support programs throughout Queensland.

“We’re thankful to have the support of Stamford Plaza yet again – and with hosts Tony Auden, Jo Hayes, Monique Dews – it’s an event not-to-be missed!”

“Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an opportunity to gather your friends and loved ones together for a cup of tea and bite to eat – for a worthy cause,” Ms McMillan said.

“From hosting or attending a morning tea, to donating, baking, or spreading the word, everyone can play a part in making 2017 a success.”

In 2017 more than 5500 Queenslanders are expected to host an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and raise $2.5 million for Cancer Council Queensland.
