A DINE AND DONATE EVENT

A Harmony High Tea get-together is the perfect event to connect people in your street.

This event helped to increase awareness of community and environmental issues and to raise approx $500 for The Orangutan Project.

As a street, this was their first step into the 'OneStreet' community - neighbours met neighbours, details were shared and tales were told. In all, a very successful inaugural event for the street.

Event details...

Support a charity

The Orangutan Project was chosen due of the impact of palm oil plantations on their habitat. The host encouraged people to look at the product label when they’re next shopping and to try and buy palm oil-free.

Make a guest list

On the invite list for this event was the local community living on the street.

Send the invites

Invitations were created and dropped in neighbours' letter boxes.
They contained:
  • Venue
  • Time and Date
  • What to bring
  • Information on the cause we were supporting (The Orangutan Project)
  • RSVP details (email address and date)

Catering

The Harmony High Tea was an ideal opportunity to embrace different cultures that reside within the street.

Neighbours were asked to bring a plate of food representative of their cultural background. A great chance to share in each others heritage - and delicious too!

Venue

The host's carport was re-purposed into an outdoor cafe with serving tables and beautiful views.

The walls were decorated with posters covering environmental and social issues to help the 'OneStreet' themed conversations get started.

Holding a raffle

Local shops and organisations were approached and asked to donate prizes. A raffle was then held, with tickets being sold at the Harmony High Tea and to the greater community.
Note: permit requirements are different in each state. Please see below for links to various sources that can help with researching your raffle permit requirements within Australia. At the time of this event, as the raffle was held in NSW and the prize pool was under $30,000, with proceeds going to charity, a permit was not required.

On the day...

This was the first event held by this OneStreet group - as well as the first time a lot of the residents had met each other. An introduction and welcome was given by the host, with a tour of the awareness posters that resulted in fantastic chats had by all. Combined with the array of delicious food provided - it was a fun and fabulous afternoon for young and old.

The host used the OneStreet 'How-to' downloads as a base to run their Harmony High Tea, including:
