It’s big, it’s fun and it’s made for small business - the Big Breakfast is the Hills Districts Chamber of Commerce favourite networking and charity fundraising event of the year.
And it’s happening on 12 September at the Eatons Hill Hotel.
There’s the community-minded executive as the keynote speaker who can reverse park a warship. Penelope Twemlow was 2016 Queensland Telstra Business Woman of the Year, Social Enterprise, and Not-For-Profit. And more…
“Plus, you can show off your business in front of hundreds of local businesses,” said Big Breakfast Organising Committee Co-Chair Leah Hudson. “And everyone is welcome to participate, not just Hills District Chamber of Commerce members.”
“The Trade Showcase is always a buzzing, impressive entrance to the event- and there’s still time to get a display table for your business, or book a seat to the breakfast,” she said.
“And being a charity fundraiser for local community groups, the friendly vibe is palpable.”
“Last year we raised $15,000, distributed it between 7 local charities.”
But what was the money used for?
“Over a period of around 8 months, 10 young people used this donation to get closer to their driver’s license,” said Nicole Walsh from North West Youth Accommodation Service.
“Getting a job is a major step in permanently moving away from homelessness,” she said.
“But getting your license is a major factor in keeping that job.”
“Five young people benefited from packages of five lessons, and one 25yo young mother with a 6yo child got her license with help from this program.”
