MORE than 40 Mornington Peninsula business women got together on Thursday 11 May for the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event in Dromana’s Green Room, raising $3236 for the Cancer Council.

Magician Cath Jamison entertained while auction items included manicures, massages and food.

Held by the Mornington Peninsula Business Women Facebook Group, the annual event was part of a national campaign to recognise how the Cancer Council saves lives through prevention, and offers counselling and support services.

“The day is as much about supporting each other in our community as it is about supporting the Cancer Council. We were thrilled to be coming together as peninsula women to support this great cause, and thank the Cancer Council for all the wonderful work it does in our community in so many ways,” one of the organisers Jo Violeta said.

“It doesn’t matter if you are a successful business woman, juggling part time work or starting out in your own business – if you are touched by cancer you need all the help you can get”.
