Leading up to Mothers Day they celebrate the 'One Mother To Another' initiative which encourages mums to make up and donate a gift bag's of women’s toiletries for mum's less fortunate. Mums who might be living in a refuge, their house might have burnt down, or sadly might be homeless.
Each gift bag was filled with toiletries you would need if you had nothing. St Kilda Mums then distributed the gifts to a mum's in need. And to spread the love, each little gift bag had a note for another mother to let them know they are cared for. Such a great cause huh!
On Friday 5 May 2017 The Mother's Day Luncheon at Greenfields took place to raise vital funds for St Kilda Mums and celebrate the success of the 'One Mother To Another' initiative.
To kick off the luncheon guests were treated to signature Cha Cha Pink Tea Pina Coladas. Who doesn't love Pina Coladas, especially when they are pink! Not to mention we were in good company alongside Veuve Clicquot. The perfect combination really, in fact, I have been known to add a little Veuve to my iced tea!
Scroll through the photos and ill include the recipes at the bottom of the blog so you too can shop the range and be inspired with Cha Cha at your next event.
