When we think Cuppa for CANSA we often think of a group of old tannies gathering at the local community hall to raise funds for a worthy cause. It’s almost never glamorous, but we go because tea is amazing and it’s all in support of a good cause. But what if we told you that someone is upping the glam factor of the Cuppa for CANSA events by hosting an oh-so-awesome High Tea complete with champers and fabulous prizes? If you’re all about teatime with the ladies and raising awareness for a good cause then make room in your calendar for the simply fabulous Twelve Apostles ‘Cuppa for CANSA’ Pink High Tea fundraising event on Thursday 1 October 2015!

For this fabulous event, the Twelve Apostles have teamed up with the likes of Le Creuset and Pongrácz to bring you an event to remember. Taking place in the hotel’s Atlantic Terrace Marquee overlooking the ocean, from 10:00 to 12:00, this event is a must-attend for anyone who loves to raise their pinky finger in a toast to breast cancer awareness. 70 guests will be able to enjoy this glamorous high tea in honour of the fight against the disease at just R300 per person, with over 50% of proceeds donated to CANSA.

So round up female friends and family, dress up ‘pretty in pink’ and indulge in the pink themed delicacies on offer. During the event, a breast cancer survivor will share her courageous story while guests can also take part in a lucky draw to stand the chance to win special prizes. After a welcoming glass of pink Pongrácz Rosé a scrumptious selection of pink treats will be presented, some of which feature cancer fighting ‘super-foods’ that are high in antioxidants.

The choices include freshly baked scones with strawberry cream, Pink velvet cupcakes, Strawberry macaroons, Rose panna cotta, Raspberry crémeux, and of course Bea’s famous cheesecake served with forest berry gel. Those with a penchant for chocolate meanwhile will love Pastry Chef Nathan Jacobs’ Chocolate brownies coated with pink chocolate and Chocolate éclairs with berry glaze. Savoury balance will be provided in the shape of delicate finger sandwiches, including Smoked salmon with cream cheese, Chicken mayonnaise with toasted almond and Roast beef with horseradish and rocket, as well as the traditional Egg mayonnaise and Cheese and tomato varieties. The savoury and pink delights will all be accompanied by the finest selection of fragrant teas and coffees.

But wait, there’s more! If you are unable to make this special event then make sure you book an individual Pink High Tea at the Twelve Apostles for you and your ladies throughout the month of October. Priced at R225 per person (which includes an entry into a Le Creuset competition to win a pink Chiffon Tea Pot) the high tea at this fabulous hotel is a must-try! Plus, for the month of October, R10 from each tea stand sold will be donated to CANSA. The Twelve Apostles Hotel Pink High Tea will be served daily in The Leopard Bar, Conservatory and Café Grill between 10:00 and 16:00, throughout October.
