Bubbles After 5

An event that connects and supports the women of St Paul's.

For the third year, the women of St Paul's gathered for an evening of connection and support, all wrapped up in bubbles and camaraderie. The event, aptly named 'Bubbles After 5', welcomed 250 women from the St Paul's community to share laughter, raise glasses, and contribute. 

Through their presence and generous contributions, the attendees raised an impressive $7,100 for the scholarship fund. This financial support is instrumental in providing opportunities for aspiring young women, exemplified by Venessa Joyce, to pursue their dreams and access a quality education.

Adding a touch of culinary flair to the event was Annabelle White, renowned for her culinary expertise and warm charm. She shared insights on life and the art of making every food moment memorable. Her best tip was to add lemon; "Lemon makes everything taste better," says Annabelle. 

As the event ended, the collective sentiment was one of gratitude and anticipation. 'Bubbles After 5' has become a tradition, a moment where St Paul's women come together to make a difference and celebrate the power of education and community support.
