Around 50 members joined us for the HBWN year end celebration on Thursday 30 November as we toasted another successful year, overlooking the Hastings River at the stunning Ana Mandara Luxury Bed & Breakfast.
The event was held in support of Australian charity 'Share the Dignity'. Attendees were asked to bring along a handbag filled with personal care items that would make a woman feel special. As usual our members were very generous, with more than 50 bags donated on the night. These donations will directly benefit local women in crisis.
Event attendees were incredibly privileged to hear our special guest speaker's story. Share the Dignity team member and domestic violence survivor Amber helped us to truly understand how and why our donated bags will make a difference to local women in crisis this Christmas.
The event was proudly sponsored by Snap Port Macquarie.Thank you to Caron and the Snap team for your ongoing support of HBWN particularly with regards to our website, graphic design and printing requirements.
Special mention must also go to XS Foods who catered the event and whose creations were delicious as always.
Finally a big thank you to our gracious hosts Janell and Leo from Ana Mandara, whose hospitality is truly appreciated. The venue was beautiful and the ideal place to enjoy our end of year celebration.
