The Cuppa For Cansa – Part 3 { The Eating, The Talking and The Bidding }

The Cuppa was hosted by me, Viveshni aka Madame Macaron.

IMG_5825The ladies all arrived at Hashtag looking beautiful in their Pink, Black and Bling.

IMG_5522IMG_5609IMG_5550As the chatter of ladies filled Hashtag I could feel that it was going to be a great afternoon. There was a little bit of a space issue but like I had asked in the invite, people did bring an open heart and we made it work.

The ladies were given the first 45minutes to get themselves something to eat and drink. (Did I mention that Hashtag sponsored all the beverages!!) The items up for auction and raffle were also on display, so the ladies had a chance to have a look at them and buy raffle tickets as well.

I had decided to do the raffle a little bit differently, so jars were placed in front of the items up for raffle and the ladies could buy a square of paper for R10 that they could write their name on on put in the jar for the item that they wanted.

The speakers for the day were:

Marlene Pretorius from the Cancer Association. She chatted to the ladies about breast cancer, the signs of breast caner, how to do a self examination and also on the environmental causes of cancer. All the ladies attending the tea were also offered a free breast exam at the Cancer Association located on Umbilo Road. I was presented with a certificate or recognition for hosting the Cuppa.

The second speaker was Dr.Nishani Maharaj from the Aesthetics clinic in Umhlanga. She spoke to the ladies about the available aesthetic treatments available and also sponsored a voucher for a chemical peel that was auctioned off.

IMG_5736The fun part of the afternoon was definitely the auction. I have to say that the woman at the tea were amazing, giving way above and beyond my expectations, with a great deal of the items being won for more than their retail value.
