March Styling Workshops

YOU'RE INVITED

Thursday 7th March

Autumn Styling Workshop to support Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute (Australia) and New Zealand Heart Foundation.

For Australia RSVP HERE >

For New Zealand RSVP HERE >

We are honoured to once again be holding our charity styling workshop on Thursday March 7. Blue Illusion boutiques around Australia will play host to an Autumn styling and fundraising workshop in aid of The Baker Institute, which focuses on diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. New Zealand styling workshops will be in support of the New Zealand Heart Foundation. 

These styling workshops are the perfect opportunity for our customers to view the new Autumn collection, through mini fashion shows, valuable styling tips, all whilst meeting likeminded friends and of course enjoying a complimentary glass of bubbles. 7% percentage of all items purchased during the workshops is donated to The Baker Institute and the NZ Heart Foundation to continue their valuable research.

Last year we made a significant impact to a number of charities with our boutiques hosting 1083 charity events which raised $326,000. This takes our total donations to over $5.5 million. However this year we want to donate even more. With your help we aim to raise $400,000 through our 2019 workshops.

Community is so important to the team Blue Illusion business and our CEO, Donna Guest, says it’s one of the most rewarding parts of owning a business.

“For myself and all of our staff, the money we raise for charity is something that makes us happy and gives our work added purpose,” said Donna. “This month we are partnering to help with cardiovascular charities as this is an issue for everyone in Australia with 21 people dying every day from a heart attack,” she said.

Funds donated to The Baker Institute in recent years have been directed to their Women After Gestational Diabetes program, which aims to help women improve their health after gestational diabetes and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Thanks to you, our loyal customers, our donations have assisted the Baker Institute in providing free practical and educational services to mothers who have experienced gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Now, new mothers have free access to a program that includes healthy eating and nutrition advice, cooking demonstrations, exercise plans and one on one management and guidance ensuring mothers stay motivated and empowered to reach their goals.
