Thanks to PAE Council for a grant which we will use in 2014 to offer support to women lin home-based businesses.
We're calling the project 'Eat Cake'.
"Let them eat cake!" is a quote attributed to Marie Antoinette, which supposedly showed her complete ignorance of the gap between the rich and the poor.
At a time when households now require 2 incomes to meet rent, mortgages, utilities and other living expenses, the same could be said for women who decide to leave the workforce to undertake community caring roles. But these women are unsung heroines. We believe they should be able to have their cake and eat it too!
Next Renniegades function is a Xmas celebration on 2nd December 2013. Meet @ the British Hotel Port Adelaide from 5.30 - 7.30.
Remember your business cards and a Kris Kringle gift to the value of $10.00.

August Rennie-gade Rave - Unique Marketing Opportunities
This cute hat will be entered by Arinya Bookkeeping in this year's Cr Carol Martin Millinery Competition.
The Millinery competition (in its 3rd year and bigger and better in 2011) formally opens on the 19th August and we've expanded the number of categories to 3: Open, Business and Young Milliners.
The new Business category opens up a unique and fun marketing opportunity for local businesses to realise increased brand exposure. Bev's business, Arinya Bookkeeping, (Arinya means kangaroo) is new to South Australia and Bev will be using the competition to raise her brand awareness within the local community.
How could you can represent your business brand as a hat, cap, fascinator, helmet, bonnet - in fact, as any form of headwear at all!
Prizes for the most creative and brand representative entries will be awarded during the 2011 Port Festival and announced at High Tea in the Grand Ballroom of the Semaphore Palais on the 7th October. If you can't make it to High Tea, entries will also be on public display in the lead up to the Spring Carnival, between 8th October and 4th November in St Vincent St. This is a fantastic chance for your business to be seen in a unique way and to capitalise on a collaborative marketing opportunity.
More details about the Cr Carol Martin Millinery Competition and the High Tea will be posted soon and, in the meantime, get your creative juices flowing AND mark the 7th October in your diary for an afternoon of fun, frivolity and friends.
