What an extraordinary day our community created on Saturday! The sun shone on the magnificent historical home, Kuranda, Hornsby, for the launch of Mary-Anne O'Connor newest book, Sisters of Freedom. Thank you to Mary-Anne and your gorgeous family – each one was a ray of sunshine and of ...course, HarperCollins Books Australia for their incredible support.
Our hearts are full, as all proceeds from the day are being donated to the Shelter to help the vulnerable women in our community - and we could not be more honoured.
Our heartfelt gratitude to Jo and Bryan Moffat, the owners of Kuranda, for their outpouring of friendship, hospitality and generosity in opening up their home to 100 guests and a multitude of helpers.
Preparation for a party is no simple task and we thank all these groups for running tours, making and serving morning & afternoon teas and setting up and packing down. Big love to Rotary Club of Wahroonga, SOS Removals & Storage Thornleigh, The Cavalcade of History and Fashion Inc., Soroptimist International Hornsby, Element ICT and students from Barker College and Knox Grammar School for volunteering on their weekend.
This one goes down in history!
