Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea

Cascade surpasses its fundraising goal!

Cascade Australia participated in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea on the 26th May 2016. A long time supporter of the Cancer Council, Cascade employees set a fundraising target of $250.

To help raise funds, employees were invited to bring in their favourite sweet or savoury treat to be raffled off at the morning tea. Who knew this invitation would set off all the master chef’s in the workplace (and at home)! Staff turned up armed with cup cakes, cakes, puddings, scones, biscuits, secret spice mix and the highly coveted samosas!

Not only did the employees of Cascade reach their fundraising target of $250, they raised $325! This was matched dollar for dollar by Cascade to make a grand total of $650! The funds raised by Cascade and other participants of the Morning Tea, help the Cancer Council’s vital research, prevention and support service programmes. With 1 in 2 Australians being diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, it is a very important area to be involved in and support.

A big thank you to all our staff, their families and other supporters for getting behind such a great event! We appreciate everyone’s contribution, no matter how big or small.

Now….to start planning next year’s morning tea!
