Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea: Get set to raise your cups for cancer!

SANCTUARY Cove Golf and Country Club will bring the community together in style next month in an effort to make a difference in the fight against cancer.

The international resort of excellence will host an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event on Tuesday, May 16.

The club will join more than 5500 Queenslanders who are expected to host an event this year and raise an estimated $2.6 million for Cancer Council Queensland.


Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan said every cup of tea counted in the fight against cancer.

“Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an opportunity to gather your friends and loved ones together to raise vital funds to ensure Cancer Council can continue its vital work, including support for those affected by cancer,” Ms McMillan said.

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

Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club function coordinator Sophie Wilson encouraged the community to join them in Arnie’s Function Room from 9.30am on May 16, as they pop the kettle on and raise their cups for cancer.

“Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club is passionate about supporting Cancer Council’s appeal, with 2017 marking our fifth morning tea,” Ms Wilson said.

“We will have a variety of exquisite high tea delights, raffles and lucky door prizes to be won.

“Bring your friends in for a fun-filled day raising money for a worthy cause.”

Tickets are $45 per person, which includes a $5 donation to Cancer Council Queensland, and must be pre-purchased by either phoning Sophie Wilson (07) 5699 9000 or emailing

The official date of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is Thursday, May 25, but locals can hold an event and raise funds anytime throughout the months of May or June.
