Business Chicks 2018 Senegal Journey

African Themed Dinner 17th November 2017 The Lion Hotel Adelaide

laughing I have locked in my major fundraisng event, an African Themed Dinner at the Lion Hotel in Adelaide on the 17th November 2017 (2 days before my 50th Bday)

It's going to be a fabulous night, with live entertainment, a DJ, Raffle, auction and wine wall.

100 of my friends and collegues are going to paint the town red...or should I say Red, Yellow and Green (the national flag of Senegal).

Sooooo excited, here’s the link to the invite,

Don’t be shy come along and join us for a night of African Themed fun!

I AM FUNDRAISING FOR THE HUNGER PROJECT TO END WORLD HUNGER

This year I have a landmark birthday (the big 50!) and have been thinking deeply about my impact in the world.
Through Business Chicks, an amazing organisation that believe (and prove) that great stuff can happen when we uplift and inspire each other, I met the fabulous Cathy Burke (former Global CEO of The Hunger Project (THP)) who said “you are enough, you have enough, to give, to serve & to lead…so get out there and give back”. This real ‘aha’ moment made me re-evaluate my life and resolve to make a difference.
THP is passionate about empowering leaders in resolving one of the biggest issues of our time- hunger. A global not-for-profit organisation THP believes that the hungry themselves, poor, non-literate women- are the key resources in ending hunger and poverty.
I have the privilege of being selected for the Business Chicks Immersion & Leadership Program in Senegal, February 2018. I will be traveling with 19 other fabulous women leaders from Australia to see THP’s work and how they support and build women leaders who are courageously working to end world hunger.
This is an opportunity for me to unlock my creativity, leadership and entrepreneurialism in partnership with some of the poorest and most marginalized women in the world. I hope to learn from the women and men who are leading in their villages, with little to no resources and striving to make a better life for their families and communities. I am sure it will be enlightening, uplifting and confronting to see how these ‘unlikely leaders’ strive to change lives and the world for generations to come.
The program needs support and donations to undertake their transformative work and as part of my journey I have made a commitment to raise $10,000, which goes straight to THP programs and not to support my journey.
I am also personally committing to learn and create meaning from this powerful experience to guide me in my future and strive to be the best leader I can be.
Please help me achieve my 50th Birthday goal by giving a tax deductible donation.
Thank you for your support, every little bit counts.

Thank you to my Sponsors
