A star-studded line-up is set to appear at this year’s International Women’s Day celebrations in Benalla.
Violet Town-born rock music singer-songwriter Ella Hooper — from the band Killing Heidi — who is also a panellist on the new ABC TV program Spicks and Specks, along with Federal Member for Indi Cathy McGowan, will be guest speakers at the evening event.
ABC Goulburn Murray radio morning show presenter Gaye Patterson will interview Ella and Cathy, who will share stories of what influenced, motivated and inspired them to become the people they are today.
This is the fourth event organised by the Benalla International Women’s Day planning team.
This year’s theme is ‘inspiring change’.
Planning team member Tracey Hooper encouraged women of all ages to come along.
‘‘As a committee we felt it was important to celebrate women’s achievements,’’ Mrs Hooper said.
‘‘It’s an opportunity for Benalla women to come together and recognise someone in the community, or who has a direct impact on the community.’’
The event has changed this year from a breakfast to a relaxed evening affair, which Mrs Hooper hopes will attract working women and younger mothers.
Mrs Hooper said this year would also be more interactive between the panel members and guests.
She said men were also welcome and the team aimed to sell about 200 tickets to the event.
Light refreshments will be served (a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink and cheese/fruit platter). Additional drinks will be available at bar prices.
Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased from Friends of Benalla Library REDb4 Bookshop at 111 Bridge St, Benalla (next to Hides Bakery) from Monday to Friday, 10
