On International Women’s Day Sunday March 9, the Zonta Club of Brisbane created an IWD2020 Zonta display at the store. Five members – Janet Prowse, Judith Anderson, Sandra McLean, Susan Scott and Susan Davies staffed the display about Zonta’s projects.

It was a great opportunity to both raise the profile of Zonta and also International Women’s Day which had a theme this year about #EachforEqual.

It was terrific of Bunnings Newstead to invite us to have the stand and they donated $150 in store vouchers as a thank you. We used one for a raffle prize and sold tickets to Bunnings patrons.

And the results? Bunnings was grateful, we created more awareness about Zonta and we made a few dollars for our service fund.

Two “learnings”: few people carry cash any more and we now have the start of a portable “What is Zonta” display to be used at our events and Sizzling!
