09 Mar Celebrating International Women’s Day
As part of yesterday’s celebration of International Women’s Day Kirsty Hellings of marshalls+dent attended the Women Connect Luncheon at the Mornington Racecourse. Women Connect is part of the Frankston (and Mornington Peninsula) business network. Women Connect supports a local charity called “Dress for Success”. This wonderful not for profit organization helps empower unemployed women into work and financial security. Today’s luncheon was not only about supporting and raising funds for “Dress for Success” but also about celebrating women, empowering women and empowering humanity.
It was fitting to be at the Mornington Racecourse and have Pam Hawkes, one of the owners of the legendary racehorse Black Caviar attend as the key speaker. It was wonderful to hear not only about Black Caviar’s journey, but also Pam’s journey from farming to successful racehorse owner and all the adventures along the way, from Cranbourne to Royal Ascot. Pam’s presentation was entertaining, insightful and funny.
