About The Event

In February 2013 women, children and men danced all over the world to raise awareness about gender based violence. In 2014 we will be rising for justice. Our aim is to put pressure on the top guns who make the vital decisions on legislation. We will be calling for tougher penalties for crimes such as rape, domestic violence and any other crime that is related to womens safety in society. Our charity lunch is a chance for us get together and meet others who work very hard on women and children's issues. It will also enable us raise funds for Parramatta Mission's Thelma Brown Cottage (women and children's domestic violence refuge). The charity lunch tickets are on sale for $40 per adult and $15 for children aged between 3 and 12 The price includes entry into a lucky door prize competition, buffet lunch, soft drinks (unlimited), a thank you show bag for each adult and entertainment by the amazing DJ Bex Meli. We will also be raffling off some amazing prizes on the day. Join us to make this event a success. “We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history.” Sonia Johnson
