THE Bermagui Country Club Arts Society held their ninth Biggest Morning Tea on May 27.

Over $2800 was raised at the event held at the Bermagui Country Club, which around 180 people attended. 

“A lot of people came, and a lot of people gave support,” vice-president of the arts society Betty De La Mare said.

“Because we get so much support from everybody, there are no expenses.” 

She said every cent of funds raised was given to the Cancer Council. 

“It was a terrific day,” Ms De La Mare said.

“Everybody was lined up at the door, ready to get in.”

It was the first year a $5 entrance fee was charged, and although there were less raffles this year Ms De La Mare said “nearly every business in town donated for the raffle”.

While the tea didn’t raise as much money as last year, Ms De La Mare said a lot of people were away.

The Bermagui Country Club Arts Society is made up of groups who take part in pottery, leadlight, art, sewing and china painting.
