FOR non-profit kindergartens, making big changes to centres to benefit children and carers can be a big task.

That is why every year Kookaburra Creek Kindergarten holds a tea party fundraiser.

This year the event on June 21 boasts beautiful catering, great prizes and raffles to be won, music and delicious food at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre.

Tea party co-ordinator Pattie Maughan said this year money raised would fund a solar power system and a water storage system.

"It's the way we improve our kindergarten and make sure it is at the high standard we want it to be," she said.

"We decided to focus on environmental sustainability. Our solar system does not cover our needs at the moment and since we are working on our gardens we thought a better water storage system was needed too."

Last year's event was a big success, and now they hope this year will be bigger and better.

"Last year we raised $26,000 with just over 300 people in attendance, so this year we are hoping to get 400 people," Ms Maughan said.

Miss Havana Nights Pre-Loved boutique will host a fashion parade and business extraordinaire Anton Guinea will MC.

Attendees can be in the running for prizes such as two-night accommodation at Heron Island, a fishing charter trip and much more.

Tickets

  • Event on June 21 from 1.30pm
  • Tickets are $75 including a two-course meal and an afternoon of entertainment.
  • There will be tables of 10.
  • Booking forms on the Kookaburra Creek Kindergarten Tea Party's Facebook page, at the Andersen St centre or email kchightea@hotmail.com.
