A record crowd of almost 1000 people attended the WIN Entertainment Centre for the biggest celebration for International Women's Day in the Illawarra yet.
Since its inception in 2005, the Illawarra IWD Committee has successfully backed the mission of key women’s support organisations in the greater Illawarra area and provided scholarships to women looking to achieve in their chosen field.
In addition to major fundraising beneficiaries, each year seven individual scholarships are
awarded to deserving Illawarra women. These scholarships allow the recipients to
further excel and take advantage of opportunities that are otherwise a challenge to meet.
This year, Australian of the Year Grace Tame held the room in silence as she shared her story of abuse and her campaign to speak her truth. Joining her was Australia’s own Greek goddess megastar Effie and NSW Gangbuster cop Deb Wallace sharing their stories.
Here at Belle Property, we are supporters of strong, passionate women making a difference. We are proud to have partnered with IWD Illawarra since 2018 and look forward to continuing to support the IWD Illawarra in the future.
