On our Mother’s Day weekend, Tori Haschka, Author of ‘Grace Under Pressure‘ joined Central West Mums with conversation and laughter about modern-day Motherhood and the importance of female friendship and connection to community groups.
The afternoon kicked off with fun tunes by Orange DJs and delicious Swift Sparkling rosé and nibbles including a date and cocoa cake (recipe in the book). Everyone enjoyed connecting with other women our community in the beautiful space of Hive Orange.
Everyone settled in to listen to a fireside chat with Tori as well as hearing from Rochelle Monaghan from Housing Plus about the Orchard and how our contribution of over $1,000 raised on the afternoon could help. Lucky door prizes were drawn and all Mums walked away with a personally signed book.
Thank you to our local member Sharon Bicknell (best friend of Tori Haschka) for helping to put on such a fabulous event.
Thank you very much to our sponsors and prize providers;
