Tickets to the High tea are $35pp with all proceeds going towards this year’s Californian Adventure.

There will be music, scrumptious treats, raffle baskets and as an added bonus there is an Art Exhibition of Myung Ja Lee at Alberton House for your viewing pleasure.

Further Information

For 29 years Koru Care New Zealand has been taking children from throughout the country on the trip of a lifetime, children from all walks of life – with ongoing medical conditions and terminal illness look forward to the opportunity to get away from it all, and be a real Kiwi kid for a couple of weeks.
