event organisers & founders

Four amazing women had a dream that started with a champagne and seafood lunch that raised $650 4 years ago, which has grown year on year, with a goal to keep raising the bar for charity. Supported by our founding and Platinum sponsor, Sorrentino Property, alongside our generous Sponsors and Community Partners, Celebrate for a Cause continues to grow.

Meet our founding board, the women who drive this event to new heights every year, and do it all in between raising their families, running their own businesses, and coordinating their growing event team to deliver the Bayside’s most exciting event, Celebrate for a Cause.
