COVID-19 UPDATE: In light of the Victorian Government's announcement, Doncare has made the decision to postpone the Empowered Women, Empowering Women charity luncheon. The circuit breaker may have temporarily tripped our plans to host the event on the 4 June, but rest assured we are working busily behind the scenes with Jane Caro and Bramleigh Estate to reschedule the event.  

We are committed to creating the best possible experience for all of our guests and whilst we would love you to hang in there with us while we navigate the next few weeks and determine a new date, we do want to provide you with the flexibility to obtain a refund, should you wish to do so.  In order to initiate a refund request, please email martine.corbett@doncare.org.au.

Doncare would like to take this opportunity to thank our fabulous sponsors, Bendigo Bank, Bramleigh Estate, 89.9 The Light, Kinexus, Quintons IGA and Woodards.  Your support of this fundraising initiative is sincerely appreciated.  

Join Jane Caro at the Empowered Women, Empowering Women charity luncheon. Enjoy a three course meal and wine at the stunning Bramleigh Estate and hear from one of Australia's most influential social commentators.

Across the global stage, women's empowerment continues to be a common theme uniting communities and Jane Caro AM is a woman known for saying what's on her mind.

The author, novelist, broadcaster, columnist and social commentator is a weekly regular on Channel Seven's 'Weekend Sunrise' and 'Mornings' on Channel Nine. Jane appears frequently on the ABC's 'Q&A' and 'The Drum', Network Ten's 'The Project' and Channel Nine's 'Sunrise'. She is also a regular panelist on the ABC's top-rating show The Gruen Transfer and a regular columnist for MamaMia, The Conversation, MT magazine, the SMH and The Drum.

#ewew2021 is set to emulate the success of the inaugural charity luncheon which boasted a stellar line-up including comedian and radio personality Jo Stanley, 2015 Australian of the Year, Dr Rosie Batty and award-winning designer and TV personality Shaynna Blaze. In fact, we've invited Jo Stanley back this year to host the event because we know how much you loved her! Rosie has even promised to join us again for what promises to be another fabulous afternoon. Get ready to get empowered!
