Having celebrated its inaugural event two years ago, Central West Mums presents Mumfest returns in November promising to be even bigger with the The Central West Mummys Awards now open, and sponsored by McGrath Orange.
Two years ago, the first Mumfest event took place with more than 300 females celebrating friendship, community and a shared love of motherhood.
On Saturday 6 November, Central West Mums Mumfest returns with the additional highlight of the Central West Mummys Awards, paying tribute to the outstanding businesses that support everyday mums, and the people who make us proud to live in the Central West.
Event host, and founder of community resources and support group Central West Mums, Amorette Zielinski is excited to bring additional focus to individuals in the community.
“Mumfest is an extension of the strong community built in a Facebook group established to support first time mums, new mums to the Central West and mothers in general who live in Orange,” Amorette said. “Despite access to this online support group, mothers will always face financial pressures, geographical isolation and question their ability to be a good mother, whatever that is!”
“I received some amazing feedback after the last event and it re-affirmed my decision to build on it even further to include the Central West Mummy Awards.
“Thanks to businesses such as McGrath Orange and See Saw we will have almost $3,000 of prizes to be won, just by nominating someone or yourself or later voting for a final nominee.
“The Mummy’s will feature categories like ‘Mum of the Year’, ‘Business of the Year’ and ‘Hero of the Year’ that are open to both male and females. Nominations will open 7 July and will be voted on by our Central West Mums community via our website and Facebook page.”
The six categories of the Central West Mummy Awards are as follows;
Mum Of The Year – Embodies traits that are highly regarded in Mothers exemplifying the power of Mother’s inner strength to deal with the successes and challenges in life and Motherhood
Educator Of The Year – Exemplary educators who are shaping the future of education practice in rural and regional NSW
