Women and Children First – Helping domestic abuse and homelessness victims

Women & Children First offers specialized support for women and children experiencing domestic and family abuse and homelessness.

In support of former Mosman Rotary member Peter Young, who is now on the W&CF Board, our club put one table of twelve together to attend this event on Friday 4 March at Manly Golf Club. The event, timed to coincide with International Women’s Day, was a huge success – totally booked out to MGC capacity, with a Waiting List of some 40 people. So well over 200 people attending which included some very brave men! The special guest MC was Jean Kittson who brought lightness and humor to the event in between the heartfelt stories, facts and figures shared with the audience, outlining the real and increasing need for funds required, to work together with women and children to find solutions to their many complex challenges in dire circumstances.

Eight major Live Auction Items, twenty-seven Silent Auction Items and ten Raffle Prizes culminated in a tremendously satisfying dollar amount in support of Women & Children First.

Let’s see if we can put two tables together representing Mosman Rotary next year!
