It was an opportunity to gather, listen to other’s stories and celebrate the ‘fabulousness’ of being a woman.

In addition to enjoying food, drinks and networking, the event supported Zonta House Refuge Association, which provides safety, essential relief and support to women who have experienced family and domestic violence, by donating all ticket proceeds to the charity.

Hart & Co marketing and experience director, Belinda Hart commented, “The inaugural empowerHerMent lunch was an event joined by many of the women from Hart & Co. The room was filled with positive vibes and high energy as we were left inspired by the key speaker. The fundraising efforts for Zonta House was an excellent result.
