CCBiz networking group is inviting the Central Coast business community to relax and build new relationships in aid of the Central Coast’s Child Abuse Prevention Service (CAPS).
The CCBiz end-of-year cocktail function on Friday, 27 November, at Ettalong Mantra Hotel will give businesses the opportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere, while supporting a Central Coast charity.
CCBiz coordinator and owner of Nicole Hammett Business Support Nicole Hammett, said the function would be a major event on the Central Coast business calendar.
“With only weeks to Christmas, Central Coast business people will be looking to spread a little goodwill and our function is the ideal place to do it,” Nicole said.
“CCBiz networking group has more businesses joining its ranks every week, and our end-of-year charity function is the perfect opportunity to showcase the business talent we have right here on the Coast, while supporting the very worthy cause of CAPS at the same time,” she said.
CAPS Central Coast is a not-for-profit organisation offering support services for parents and families on the Central Coast for more than 35 years. CAPS aims to alleviate child abuse in all its forms, by educating and informing both parents and the public through telephone counselling, training sessions, workshops and referrals to relevant professional services.
Julie Watson from CAPS Central Coast said the charity relied solely on funding from the community, businesses and fundraising and were extremely grateful for CCBiz’s support.
“The future of the Central Coast community relies on well-balanced children of today. This cycle must be seen as a community problem. Who else will take care of these children?” Julie asked.
“CAPS is an essential service for the Central Coast. There is a need for the services we provide, demonstrated by a 15 per cent rise in child abuse every year right here on the Coast,” she added.
The Central Coast Women’s Network is a major sponsor for the CCBiz charity function. Central Coast Women’s Network is all about professional businesswomen meeting bi-monthly for a networking lunch in a relaxed, yet professional atmosphere.
