VIEW clubs in the Illawarra and Southern Highlands are hosting an International Women’s Day lunch at the Sage Hotel on March 11.
VIEW stands for Voice, Interests and Education of Women and the keynote speaker is Detective Superintendent Deborah Wallace of the Gang Squad.
National councillor Yvonne White, of Towradgi, said the event would also feature a testimonial by a student supported by VIEW Clubs of Australia through The Smith Family's Learning for Life program.
VIEW Clubs are the largest community sponsor and exclusively support the program to "make a difference" for disadvantaged Australian children with their education.
The 17 clubs in the Illawarra and Southern Highlands last year raised $90,000 made up of General donations and the support of 55 Learning for Life students.
Volunteers also contribute by supplying school supplies, making library bags and knee rugs, and helping with afterschool learning clubs.
