Frocks and finery at charity high tea

MORE than 200 women frocked up in their finest to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Queensland at the Mayoress's Charity High Tea.

Hosted by Joy Forman, the event at Rowers on the River on Saturday afternoon sold out in a flash with extra tables being added to accommodate the demand.

"It's gone very well and I guess the icing on the cake was the Governor (Penelope Wensley) was present so that went well," Mrs Forman said.

"It was a lovely afternoon."

Among those who spoke at the event was 16-year-old Maryborough boy and cystic fibrosis sufferer Coen Ashton who did a seven-week jetski down the Murray to raise awareness and, after having a lung transplant, completed the ride again in just seven days showing how much of a difference organ donations can make.

Mrs Forman said while the figures were still being tallied, she expected the event had raised in excess of the $11,000 raised last year.
