    High Tea at Pink Test

    Even as the cricket headed towards a washout, breast cancer survivors, a PM, a premier, TV personalities and general punters were high and dry at the SCG’s annual Jane McGrath high tea, the Daily Telegraph reports .

    From alcoholic beverages to an electric violin, attendees at the Jane McGrath High Tea were tickled pink on Friday in a celebration of life, hope and Jane McGrath.

    The sold-out lunch held at Allianz Stadium brought A-listers and everyday Australians together for an afternoon of food, photos and fun.

    Those attending the event were welcomed by the angelic sound of the Qantas Girls’ Choir, who performed their rendition of “We are Australian”, with the escalators as their stage.

    Guests were then taken up to the venue’s Hirers Room where they were invited to have their photo taken before posing on the 360 video booth, all while violinist Cardinia performed.

    Among the crowd was Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Premier Dominic Perrottet and partners of cricket icons, as well as TV personalities, breast cancer survivors and their friends and family.

    Melburnian Anton Gaudry was also at the event with his daughter and her boyfriend to support the McGrath foundation and experience the Pink Test after missing out last year due to Covid.

    “The McGrath Foundation is such a good cause and we wanted to make such a special effort to be here,” he said.
