High tea and inspirational talks at Riverine Club on Saturday formed the latest fundraising efforts of the Miss Wagga Quest.
More than 100 attendees took part in the event, the second of the year for the 2019 entrants.
It was an afternoon of delicious teas, treats and great entertainment.
The high tea raised funds for the entrants’ chosen beneficiaries: Ronald McDonald House, Loreto Home of Compassion, Forrest Centre Hospice, The Leisure Company and Country Hope.
Entrant Presslea Cowan said the guest speakers – Carly Salmon and Catherine McCormack – were the highlights.
“Carly spoke about her life story – it was quite moving, teary and beautiful,” Ms Cowan said.
“We’re also here to raise as much money as we can for our beneficiaries.”

Similarly, fellow entrant Stina Constantine said the day was positive.
“Today’s been an amazing turnout and I’m really looking forward to enjoying the rest of the afternoon,” she said.
Prizes were awarded for most elegantly dressed.
The Miss Wagga Quest has two upcoming events: barbecue at Kapooka Army Base on September 22 and afternoon bingo on October 7.
