After a short hiatus due to COVID-19, Berth Restaurant’s Biggest Morning Tea is returning this year with hopes to once again be one of Victoria’s biggest fundraisers for Cancer Council Australia.

In 2019, Berth had its biggest year yet raising more than $20,000, and now for its first event back post-pandemic, Berth’s Lisa Pham, who is in-charge of hosting the event, said she was hopeful of “beating it” and reaching $25,000.

Berth has been a part of the annual fundraising day for the past 10 years, raising in excess of $100,000, and following a tough time during the pandemic with a couple of staff members “impacted quite heavily”, the team is looking ahead with determination.

“Everyone has been impacted in one way or another by cancer, and it is something that has impacted us [at Berth] more in the past few years,” Ms Pham said.

“To be able to raise some money for Cancer Council is the least we can do as a business, and both the ladies from our staff who were impacted will be speaking on the day about their experience.”

The morning will take place at Berth (45 NewQuay Promenade) on the official fundraising day of Thursday, May 25, from 11.30am to 2.30pm, and tickets are selling fast.

Of the tickets released, the six VIP tables of 12 seats have already sold out, with general admission tickets still available for $50 each.

The morning tea will include Berth’s renowned high tea grazing style, coffee and tea, door prizes, raffles, auctions, and games, with many local businesses already onboard for the community event.
