Tea & Jardin Fundraising Event

February 27, 2024 Ruel Foundation Comments Off

60 ladies enjoyed an afternoon at Laffin Estate, one of the Bay of Plenty’s finest home and gardens set in a picture-perfect setting. Thankfully the fundraising event concluded just before the storm came through – perfect timing!

Local floral artist Lyn McConnell demonstrated three floral art displays depicting her personal experiences at the Ruel Foundation. She then taught the ladies how to make a hand-held bouquet. We were blessed by an abundance of flowers, lovely afternoon tea and everyone left with a smile, having had an afternoon of fun with the knowledge they had helped precious children in the process. We raised $3,396!

This event was inspired by one hosted by another group of ladies in Masterton – don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to organise one in your area!
