Quota breakfast marks 90 years’ service

“Women – it’s our world!” is the theme for Quota Cares month, which celebrates 90 years of community service and fundraising by the worldwide organisation.

To mark the anniversary, Quota International of Coolum Beach is hosting a special women’s breakfast on Wednesday, March 18 at Peregian Springs Golf Club, from 7.30-9am.

At only $35 each for a full breakfast, the event is a great opportunity for working and non-working members of the community to network and celebrate together.

Guest speaker is Shelly Horton, the Sydney Sun-Herald’s diary columnist and a regular on morning television, the ABC’s The Glass House and George Negus Tonight.

Tickets for the breakfast are available at The Professionals, Coolum Beach (phone 5446 1133), or by phoning Lindy (5446 1639) or Denise (work 5474 2402; home 5447 1365).

Proceeds from the breakfast will be donated to Riding for the Disabled Sunshine Coast, a local organisation that gives disabled children and young people opportunities to exercise by horse-riding, but which is struggling to find a home for its horses.

Chartered in 1995, members of Quota International of Coolum Beach are actively involved in fundraising and service within the Coolum region.

Members come from many walks of life and age groups and a blend of workers and non-employed women.

Quota’s fundraising efforts provide donations to many worthy causes, and members also network with other service organisations in the area for the benefit of the local community.

The service mission of Quota International focuses on deaf and hard-of-hearing people and disadvantaged women and children.

Together, local clubs provide hundreds of thousands of service hours and more than $1 million each year to help people in need in their own communities and worldwide.

In Australia, Quota is a major supporter of the Hear and Say program, which funds cochlear implants so hundreds of deaf children can hear.

Quota’s award-winning Club-to-Club World Service program channels aid directly to service efforts run by Quota clubs in developing nations, including the Philippines, India, Malaysia, Suriname and Fiji.
