Community members are invited to serve up some looks alongside the cake and sandwiches at the Frocktober Tea Party at Childers Art Space on 12 October.
Now in its second year, Frocktober celebrates Seniors Month by encouraging visitors to enjoy a morning of friendship and fashion while helping to raise much needed funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.
The event will take place in the gallery space and verandah overlooking historic Childers and tickets include a delicious morning tea as well as lucky door prizes, with raffle tickets also on sale.
All funds raised will be donated directly to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.
Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the event was a great way for the community to connect while also raising awareness.
“Frocktober was a great success last year and we are excited to be hosting it again as part of our Seniors Month line up,” Cr Learmonth said.
“This initiative serves as a wonderful way for residents to get out and have some fun while also supporting an important cause that affects so many women including those in our own community.”
The third annual Queensland Seniors Month is currently underway, encouraging older residents to engage in social activities under the theme ‘Connect Fest’.
Alongside Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland, Bundaberg Regional Council has brought together a variety of activities to encourage community connectedness and honour the contributions made by senior residents.
