Emerald Lakes

Gather, Share and Give…

13 Jun, 2016

On Thursday 26th May, Seachange Emerald Lakes hosted and participated in their first charity event, the Cancer Council’s “Biggest Morning Tea”.  The event aimed to raise vital funds for cancer research, prevention and support services.

The Club House at Seachange Emerald Lakes provided the perfect backdrop for “The Biggest Morning Tea” with residents and their families and friends eager to show their support for such a worthy cause with over 130 people in attendance. In keeping with Seachange Emerald Lakes position as Australia’s premier Over 50’s Lifestyle Resort, champagne was provided upon arrival.

All in attendance were treated to the delights of Cindy the harpist and vital funds were raised during a range of fun activities, guessing the beans in the jar and tossing a ping-pong ball into a bucket. Throughout the day much laughter and friendly banter could be heard throughout all corners of this magnificent venue and the buffet table provided the perfect meeting point for residents and guests to interact as a true community.

Sitting in prime poolside terrace seats and enjoying the festivities were the newest residents of Emerald Lakes, having just picked up their keys the day before. Michael and Phillipa Kennedy look forward to what the future holds and couldn’t be more excited about moving in and being part of a family environment.  Close by were another couple that have called Seachange Emerald Lakes home for exactly a year, Robin and Glennie Cameron.  Robin stated, “that the morning tea whilst a fundraiser was also a prime opportunity for mingling amongst all, meeting new friends and catching up with old friends”.

Residents within the community pulled together for such an admirable cause, it can only be said that this event from beginning to end was a proud Seachange Moment. To top it all off, $2,500 was raised for the inaugural Cancer Councils “Biggest Morning Tea”.
