Amanda puts on her dancing shoes
Amanda is event coordinator at Rydges Port Macquarie, where she has been employed for 9 years. She has worn many hats throughout her career including being a commercial chef, running a restaurant, and owning numerous businesses including a catering company, another in fashion and her own Airbnb. Despite her many successes, her greatest pride has been raising her beautiful son Gilligan.
Amanda has worked on the Stars of Hastings Dance for Cancer for many years, as the Rydges event manager dedicated to the event since its inception in the Hastings region. This privilege has given her a thorough insight into the event, its workings, the organisers, the stars and dancers.
Now it’s time for Amanda to put on her dancing shoes. Despite being nervous, she is determined to enjoy the event to the utmost. She aims to raise as much money as possible for the Cancer Council, whilst increasing community awareness about the disease and the impact it has on those it affects.
