On Friday 13th October, sixty amazing Wheatbelt and regional women filled the York Recreation and Convention Centre, bringing an energy that can only be created by passionate, driven and supportive regional women.
WBN’s “Elevate and Celebrate” Ladies Luncheon had begun and together we listened intently to the inspiring, relatable and raw stories from our outstanding speakers Bec Bignell from Cockatoo Colab and Rural Room, Caroline Robinson from 150Square and Rebecca Atkinson from the Shire of York.
The antipasto boards and beautiful mains from Gather York never fail to delight and many a champagne or cuppa were enjoyed whilst friends, new and old, caught up and networked.
WBN would like to thank our incredible speakers Bec Bignell, Caroline Robinson and Rebecca Atkinson; Hon. Mia Davies MLA and WBN Board member Elyssa Giedraitis from EJG Creative for attending; our sponsors of the day ProcessWorx; the legendary York caterers and WBN members Gather York and the York Recreation and Convention Centre for hosting us. A huge thanks to our wonderful WBN members who donated prizes for the day:
– Corrugated Farm for multiple handmade gifts crafted by their many contributing artists
– Melissa Welsh from Melissa Welsh Style and Design for a delectable pair of wines as the days’ door prize.
An additional thank you to Melissa for “re-donating” the door prize back when she uncannily chose the 1 seat out of 60 that happened to have the Door Prize golden ticket hidden underneath!!
We have received wonderful feedback from those in attendance and look forward to turning this into an annual event, getting bigger and better every year.
