They have also been involved with more programs to benefit communities across the world and help bring recognition to the efforts of women of all nations.

Lifeflight will be the recipient of all funds raised at the Quota International Women's Day Breakfast which will start at 7am.

The cost of $30 per person will provide a full breakfast with vegetarian and gluten free options available if requested on booking.
