LAST CHANCE: Tickets almost gone for Women's Day lunch

TODAY is International Women's Day, and the globe is celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Whitsundays ZONTA is once again hosting its annual International Women's Day Lunch, something the club has proudly hosted every year since 2000, and there are still a handful of tickets available. 

"It's one of our major fundraisers and ensure the projects we do throughout the local community continue," Whitsundays Zonta Club service director Carol Bolton said.

Women of the Whitsundays will don their favourite frocks, and let their hair down all while being surrounded fantastic and inspiring women.

This year's lunch deserves an extra bit of zing, as it will be 20 years since ZONTA was formed in the Whitsundays, and 100 years since ZONTA international was founded.

La Marina is hosting the lunch and diners will receive a complimentary glass of fizz on arrival, followed by an exquisite three course spread. 

The lucky door prize has generously been donated by Whitsunday Apartments Hamilton Island; two nights' accommodation for two adults and three children at Sea View Apartment.

Attendees will be lucky enough to hear from ZONTA district governor Sandy Venn-Brown.

Ms Venn-Brown is passionate about empowering women, and with her background in psychology, public sector management and media and communications, her words will be sure to lift and inspire.

Zonta Club of the Whitsundays has raised thousands of dollars over the years, for targeted ZONTA international projects, as well as supporting women and girls around the world.

The club continues to raise awareness for domestic violence and gender equality and has helped dozens of local females with scholarships and financial assistance.

All funds raised at the lunch will further the work of supporting women and girls in the community and around the world.
