Bella Italia theme at Centenary Evening View Club meeting

LADIES from Centenary Evening View Club enjoyed an evening of fun and friendship at one of their major fundraising events for the year.

With the theme of Bella Italia, tables were set with red checked table cloths and decorated with Italian flags and Chianti bottles with wax dripping candles.

A feast of Italian-inspired dishes including decadent desserts was served, and there was a great deal of chatter and laughter as the ladies enjoyed time together.

Money raised on the night will help the five students the club sponsors through The Smith Family Learning for Life program.

Several ladies from the club will be attending the National VIEW Convention in Wollongong.

They will be among more than 600 women from across Australia who will descend on the city from Friday to Sunday, September 11-13.

VIEW stands for Voice, Interests and Education of Women and was established in 1960 by children's charity The Smith Family as a service to women and the community.

Today VIEW is a leading women's volunteer organisation and support network that empowers women to have their voices heard on issues affecting the future wellbeing of Australian society.

Members actively fundraise and volunteer in support of The Smith Family which supports students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
