Say ‘I do’ to charity high tea

Wear wedding gown for ELAW

EAST London Animal Welfare (ELAW) will be hosting a Bridal Nostalgia High Tea event in aid of the animal charity.

“The day is about having a wonderful time for a wonderful cause. The event requires ladies to host their own tables which includes decorating the tables, providing snacks and dressing up.

“The highlight of the event is that brides are going to have the opportunity to wear their beautiful and memorable wedding gowns once again,” organiser Gail Gane said.

Entertainment for the day will include the musical talents of Cindy Bester; Businesswomen Association (BWA) entrepreneur of the year Estie Gane from Ginger & Co as guest speaker, as well as models from Models modelling agency who will be showcasing the latest collection from Honey Jewellery.

“Guests can expect lots of glamour as everyone who hosts a table will be going all out to impress with various gorgeous themes.

There will also be a few lucky draws throughout the day with great prizes up for grabs,” Gane said.

“The event is open to all and we encourage brides of any age who still have their wedding dresses hanging in their closets, to participate,” she said.

“We have also asked for bridesmaids and flowergirls to join in to recreate the some of the wedding day magic and memories.”

ELAW has sold 80 tickets to date and hope to raise R12000 for the animals in their care. The charity is staffed purely by volunteers and aims to prevent cruelty to animals through assisting, educating and creating awareness.

The funds raised through this event will help the organisation immensely and ensure their continued support and hard work in the fight against animal cruelty.

The event will be held at the Osner Hotel on Saturday between 10am and 1pm and promises to be a fun-filled day. Tickets are R120 per person and can be purchased at the Beacon Bay Vet clinic.
