Enjoy brunch by the sea
ARRANGEMENTS are in full swing for the International Women’s Day brunch to be held this year on Sunday March 7.
Organised by the Zonta Club of the Whitsundays, the brunch event will be held at Coral Sea Resort.
This year the theme is ‘Count Me In’, with the subtitle being ‘making the world a safer, greener, fairer place’.
Zonta President Robyn Mitchell is calling on people to get involved in the cause.
“It’s meant to be a call to action, asking people to join in, have a go, put their hand up for the things that are important to them,” she said.
“This may be in a local way, which can be very important, such as teaching your children to be tolerant of things that are different.
“Or it may involve making a broader commitment, such as supporting international projects.”
According to Mrs Mitchell the theme emphasises the importance of getting involved at whatever level people can participate, and looking for ways to improve our world.
One of the highlights of the event will be a speech by Pru Goward who has had vast experience as a television and radio journalist and presenter, and more recently as a senior government policy maker when she was Executive Director of the Office of the Status of Women and Sex Discrimination Commissioner.
Tickets cost $38 and are available from CPQ in Airlie Beach, Moocha’s Boutique at Centro, Community Solutions at Cannonvale Shopping Centre, and Proserpine Hair Shoppe in Deicke Arcade, Proserpine.
