    Event description

    Lipoedema Awareness Month Gold Coast Morning Tea

    Date and Time: Saturday 1st June, 9 am until 11am

    Location: Edgewater Dining, Isle of Capri

    About the Event:

    To celebrate Lipoedema Awareness Month, Dr Chris Lekich and the Lipoedema Surgical Solution Team are inviting  you to a morning tea to celebrate YOU.  Please join us to connect with other women on a Lipoedema journey and empower yourself with their stories.  As well as our Gold Coast event, we will also be holding events in both Melbourne and Sydney.  If these locations aren’t convenient for you, consider hosting your own morning tea with our support!.

    Lipoedema, a condition that affects up to 1 in 10 women in Australia yet is still often misunderstood, is filled with stories of resilience and strength.  Our events aim to provide a nurturing environment for support, connection, and the freedom to be yourself.  The morning tea will begin with a light-hearted activity, followed by the opportunity to mingle, and have a coffee with morning tea on us.  There will be plenty of opportunities for photos and sharing, and all guests that attend will receive a small gift, commissioned by us from fellow Lipoedema advocate Elise Miller.  One lucky attendee will also win the lucky door prize, a mindfulness gift pack curated by our team from female artists and designers.  In honour of the occasion and to continue raising awareness, our team will be wearing pink shirts, and we encourage you to also either wear pink or add something pink to your outfit (such as a headband or scarf) to show your support.

    Raising Lipoedema Awareness:

    Dr Chris Lekich and The Lipoedema Surgical Solution Team remain committed to raising awareness for Lipoedema.  As part of that commitment, our team will have a professional photographer on site to document the event, as well as team members interacting with guests and holding short, impromptu interviews.  These photos and videos, along with accompanying audio, will be shared on our website, social media pages and other related material with the aim to highlight Lipoedema Awareness and the treatment options available.  While you are under no obligation to participate in interviews or photographs and video directly, by confirming your attendance to this event, you confirm your consent to have photos, videos and/or audio you appear in, either directly or indirectly, shared by us.  With that being said, your attendance and participation are greatly encouraged for a number of reasons, not least of all to provide women with Lipoedema with a voice.  Read more about Lipoedema Awareness on our website.

    Other details to note:

    As these events are being held both in honour of and to celebrate women with Lipoedema, tickets are reserved primarily for women with Lipoedema.  A small number of tickets will be reserved for support people and therapists/practitioners.  We ask that you book the appropriate ticket when ‘checking out’ to avoid others missing out unnecessarily.  If you have booked a ticket and are no longer able to attend, we encourage you to cancel your spot/s (simply follow the ‘manage order’ prompt on your confirmation email from Humanatix), so that someone from the waiting list can take your spot.  Likewise, if you are interested in a ticket and there are none available, please click here to join our waiting list.

    To ensure Edgewater Dining can commence their lunch service on time, this event will finish promptly at 11 am.  For those wishing to stay on for lunch, the Edgewater Dining Team recommend booking a table via their booking link to avoid disappointment.  A 10% discount on lunch is offered to all guests staying on from  the Lipoedema Awareness Month Morning Tea, simply mention you are from this event to access the discount.  Various options for morning tea will be available, including barista coffee and tea (with milk alternatives) and an array of light breakfast nibbles, including low-carb options.  If you have a specific dietary requirement, you have the option to let us know when 'checking out' by midnight on Sunday 26th May.  Babies in arms are more than welcome at this event.  Whilst we would love to have older toddlers and children attend also, we are unable to cater for them.
