International Women's Day Hastings Heroines Breakfast


The 7th Annual celebration for International Women's Day and the Hastings Heroines ceremony will take place on March 8th 2018 at Panthers Port Macquarie.

Hosted by the Hastings Business Women's Network and MP Leslie Williams - this premier breakfast event is a celebration for all within the community. 

The event is a fundraiser for the Port Macquarie Hastings Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Service (PMH D&FV SS).

PMH D&FV SS was formed in 1980 as the Hastings Women and Children's Refuge Inc. to provide crisis accommodation and support to women and their children or single women escaping domestic violence or in crisis.

Guests will hear from Guest Speaker, Bec Brideson on the morning, who will share her journey as well as inspire guests to take the leap and propel women's progress forward with her fascinating story of relapse, 'recovering misogyny' and redemption.

Last year's event was a sell out. So be quick to get your tickets!
