Zonta Club of Caloundra invites you to their International Women's Day Fire and Ice Champagne Cocktail Party.

Guest Speaker: The Sunshine Coast's very own Donna Penny, author of 'Why My Mummy'.

Donna Penny is a Sunshine Coast mother of two living on borrowed time. Diagnosed with breast cancer at just 35 years of age she underwent a double mastectomy and was given the all clear until the cancer returned five years later and she was given the devastating news that it had spread to other parts of her body. Despite receiving such heart-wrenching news Donna fulfilled her dream and opened a hair salon with her two best friends.

Given just two years to live, Donna is what she calls past her ‘expiry date’ and is living every day to the fullest. Aside from the challenge of battling cancer, one of the biggest hurdles that both Donna and her husband Jason had to face was trying to explain her diagnosis to her children. This challenge was one of the many that inspired Donna to write the book, “Why my Mummy?” and to reach out to those who have also been touched by cancer. By doing this Donna aims to leave a legacy behind for her family and the world to remember her by. 

Join us to hear the story behind this amazingly courageous and inspirational woman whilst sipping on a champagne cocktail on arrival, dining on delightful canapes listening to live music and entertainment along with some of the best prizes to ever be won at an International Women's Day event as listed below, certainly a night not to be missed!
