Why frocks, why dancing, why ovarian cancer?
Lisa started fundraising for ovarian cancer research after the diagnosis and death of a close family friend because of the disease. She found the fantastic national fundraiser Frocktober and decided to create an event where everyone could wear their favourite frock for a refined high tea. Prior to 2015, Lisa held a dance party called Rock Your Frock. You can read more about the history of Rock Your Frock here.
Do I have to wear a frock (dress)?
No you don't have to - although everyone has more fun in a frock! But seriously, gentlemen we do not expect you to frock up.
