A THEMED tea party based on the latest Disney movie Frozen was held at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre on Saturday afternoon.

Almost 200 women, donned in their most elegant outfits, walked through the doors to support the non-profit kindy Kookaburra Creek Kindergarten.

The table decorations were created using recycled bottles, jars, old tree branches and playdough.

Tea party co-ordinator and kindy mum Pattie Maughan was delighted with the result.

"We had many prizes donated by community members, that was amazing. A $1200 holiday package was donated by Heron Island, we had teeth whitening, photography and fishing charter donations," she said.

Although figures are still being counted, organisers estimate $20,000 was raised.

"This is our sixth year doing the tea party, I'm stoked with what we raised," Ms Maughan said.

However, the cause behind the tea party went beyond the glitz and glam of the event.

"We want to get more solar panels and water tanks at the kindy. Hopefully it teaches kids how to be environmentally friendly. We can use the sun to power the kindy and take water from the rain and water the garden. We want to look after the kindy self-sufficiently, then we can save money to spend on the kids."
