MORE than 100 women enjoyed a lunch with a view to celebrate International Women’s Day last Thursday.
Hosted by The First WAVE (WA VIEW Evening) Club, with VIEW standing for ‘voice, interests and education of women’, the event focussed on women in the community.
It featured a three-course meal at the Marmion Angling and Aquatic Club, with a string quartet from Carine Senior High School providing the entertainment.
The event was also a fundraiser to sponsor nine students through The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program for disadvantaged children.
Guest speakers included The Foster Care Association of WA director Fay Alford, author Natasha Lester, WA VIEW zone councillor Mary Mitchener Coll, The Smith Family’s Deb McArdle and Learning for Life student Cheyenne Carter.
The First WAVE Club meets on the first Monday of each month at 6.30pm at The Kingsley Tavern.
