Jacki Mitchell, RPP FM presenter and producer of Taking Care of Business (TCOB) donated an ‘interview’ on her program at Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Thursday 26 May at The Green Room in Dromana.

Jacki, who auctioned the ‘interview’ managed to make the highest bidding auction item at the morning tea, raising $500.

Sam Keats from Keats Accounting was the lucky bidder who will now appear on TCOB to have his ’15 minutes of fame’!

Attendees at the morning tea to raise funds for cancer patients and families

Jo Violeta, one of the organisers of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea said, “We raised a total of $3838 through 61 ticket sales, online donations, cash donations, the live Auction, and gold coin donations on the day for massages, reflexology treatments, and manicures.”

“Last week I spoke with a Research Scientist who is currently developing a treatment that shrinks melanomas to less than 10% of their original size, and a Cancer Council Nurse who explained that funds raised go to support people and their families who have been touched by cancer,” added Jo.

 

Thank you to the Mornington Peninsula Business Women, Jo Violeta, RPP FM and Jacki for the donation and all who participated and helped raise funds by pouring a cuppa for a cause.
