CELEBRATING WOMEN OF FAITH – ANNUAL CATHOLIC WOMEN’S FUNDRAISING DINNER
October 27 @ 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM
The Archdiocese’s Women’s Taskforce is holding its annual fundraising dinner for Mary MacKillop House on Friday 27 October 2023.
The Dinner brings together women of all ages to celebrate and share the joy of faith in their lives – while raising funds for homeless women and their children.
Held at the Southern Cross Club Canberra in Woden, the dinner is a fun night which will appeal to both younger and more mature women. The evening is an enjoyable and relaxed celebration for women of faith coming together in friendship and supporting a vulnerable community.
The guest speaker, well-known local personality Genevieve Jacobs AM, will speak on her experience of her Catholic faith in both her professional and personal life.
Ms Jacobs has been a journalist for 30 years, in print and radio. Her career began with rural newspapers and she spent decades with ABC Radio Canberra. Now a freelance journalist with Riotact, she has a deep engagement with culture and the arts, and especially Reconciliation.
The dinner is also being supported by a range of sponsors in the Canberra region, and a charity auction will be part of the evening’s activities.
The Taskforce’s 2022 fundraising donation of $5000 will be presented to MacKillop House at the dinner.
The Taskforce extends a special invitation to young women and women from rural and regional areas of the Archdiocese. Additional support is also available for women from regional and rural areas to attend the event. Please make enquiries.
Tickets are $80 per person, with an early bird price of $70 (until 29 September), and tables of 10 discounted to $700.
Tickets can be purchased at www.cgwomen.com.au through Humanatix.
