Zonta Club of East Auckland celebrated its 31st birthday at the Howick Club on Tuesday by holding a Quiz Night, which raised $1000 for the charity Dress for Success.
The evening started with Margot Earwaker from Dress for Success detailed just how women returning to the workforce are given assistance with appropriate dress, make-up, grooming, preparing their CV and interview techniques.
They are also given mentoring for two years following taking on a position in the workforce.
She spoke of the privilege in seeing the transformation of ladies who have little opportunities in the past to being positive and confident people who see the possibilities for them.
The enjoyable evening was hosted by a competent quiz mistress and Zonta member Marion Jones.
The birthday cake was cut by charter member Sue Miller, and newest club member Meg Morgan.
