Pittwater International Women’s Day Breakfast Wednesday 2 March 2022 at 7am at Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club
The Zonta Club of Northern Beaches Inc will host the annual Pittwater International Women’s Day Breakfast on Wednesday 2 March 2022 at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, 16 Mitala St, Newport.
The guest speaker at the breakfast will be Val Edwards.
Val grew up in Wollongong. She moved to Sydney in 1970 and has been an active member of the Palm Beach community since 1989. She is married with three children and seven grandchildren.
When Val left school, she was invited to enter the Miss Australia Quest and raised the most money in her region for the Spastic Centre, now named the Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Val was recently asked to assist the Lung Foundation Australia and NSW Health in presenting up to date information online for people who suffer from COPD.
In 2000, Val was invited to participate on three levels at the Sydney Olympic Games. She was chosen:
• to be an Attache for Tajikistan;
• to train the 150 medal presenting staff, and
• to provide models to welcome dignitaries.
An official Olympic Games postage stamp featuring Val commemorated the “best ever” games.
Twenty eight years ago Val bought her business ‘Sydney Model Agency and Sydney Etiquette College’. Val has a career focused on helping build confidence in boys and girls from 13 years of age from all backgrounds. Val will speak on her life story.
