Independent Arbonne consultant Katie Lavender is hosting a “Shine Bright” High Tea fundraiser, raising funds for a community in Manila, Philippines.

The fundraiser, which doubles as a fashion parade and shopping event, will include champagne on arrival, tea, cakes, raffle prizes, and the option to buy any of the clothes exhibited in the fashion parade on the day.

The aim of the fundraiser is to assist Katie and five women from Baylife church, in their commitment to help the women in the Philippines, and their families, move out of poverty.

Baylife Church has been supporting the Philippines community of Manila for the last 10 years.

The new program aims to give the women the skills, knowledge and finances, to start a business in their local area.
On top of this new initiative, the women are aiming to have more ‘mums and bubs’ sponsored in the mums and bubs program developed by Compassion Australia.

Katie told News Of The Area, “There are currently forty  women and babies in this project, and with every Arbonne pack purchased at the event, the money will go towards including more women in the program, as well as sponsoring the new business initiative.”

“Baylife church has a heart for the people of the Philippines and Uganda, this is evident in the amount of time and money invested in helping the lives of its people.”

“Last year, over $2000 was raised as a result of fundraising events throughout the year, which went into buying birthing kits, hand-packed by the women of Baylife, for the mothers-to-be in Uganda,” she said.

The “Shine Bright” High-Tea fundraiser will be held at The Green House, Pacific Dunes on 2 of April at 1pm.

If you want to help with this wonderful work, you can gather your friends and purchase tickets.

The girls are also looking for donations to raffle on the day.
