Event description

Lipoedema Awareness Month Sydney Morning Tea

Date and Time: Saturday 22nd June, 9 - 11 am

Location: Sergeant's Mess, Chowder Bay

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 Sydney event, we will also be holding events in both Gold Coast and Melbourne.  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 Humanitix), 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 join our waiting list to have a ticket automatically offered to you, as soon as it may become available. 

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 will have the option to let us know when booking your ticket by Wednesday 5th June.  This event will finish promptly at 11am.  For those wishing to stay in the area for lunch, the Sergeant's Mess Team recommend another venue called The Buena, a 7 minute drive from the venue.  Directions can be found on Google maps and booking a table can be done via their website.  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.

Getting to the event:

Sergeant's Mess is located at Chowder Bay, Sydney.  Please note: not all Satellite Navigators have Chowder Bay Rd on their maps.  There is metered paid parking available opposite the venue and further parking available 200 metres from the venue.  A shuttle service will operate from this car park from 8.30 am until the event begins at 9 am.  There is also ramp access from the front of the venue.  
People wishing to travel to Sergeants’ Mess from the CBD by bus will need to board 100 service (QVB to Taronga Zoo) and alight at Military Rd after Raglan St. Then transfer to the 111 (Chowder Bay and South Mosman Wharf) and alight at Chowder Bay Rd opposite Sydney Institute of Marine Science.  More information is available on the Sergeant's Mess and Transport NSW websites.

Secure your spot today through Humanitix, and together, let's illuminate the path to understanding, acceptance, and liberation for those living with Lipoedema.
