The Beltree for Breast Cancer

After two postponements (thanks, Covid!), the first annual Beltree Annual Breast Cancer Dinner will finally take place on 22 October at The Beltree on Hermitage Road Pokolbin.


The event has been inspired by Georgina Sheargold, owner of The Beltree, who lost her mother (Diana Sheargold) in 2019, saying that she wanted the event to embody both her fond family memories of the Hunter Valley and the giving nature she knew her mother by.

Georgina said her mum worked for Avon for as long as she could remember and was one of the last standing staff members before its closure.

“Breast Cancer fundraising was prominent throughout my childhood with Mum’s involvement supporting Avon’s famous Breast Cancer Bears. We’ll have mini Highlander breast cancer cows for sale at the dinner, with all proceeds going directly to The National Breast Cancer Foundation Australia (NBCF). It’s my take on the Avon bear,” said Georgina.

“Fundraising is embedded in my family. My grandmother has received an MBE Medal for her work in establishing the legacy fundraising campaigns, and my grandfather has worked with local Rotary Clubs for many years. Now it is my turn to give back by organising this annual event.”

Included in the ticket price are a Beltree Signature Cocktail on arrival, a three-course dinner, silent auction, live entertainment, a seat drop gift, plus the chance to win a fabulous lucky door prize.

“Some of the silent auction items include a private custom wine tour from Heart of Hunter Tours valued at $550, a private horse and carriage wine tour by Hunter Valley Horses valued at over $900 and an accommodation package at Tamburlaine on Pym in the beautiful Orange region valued at $1200, with all proceeds going directly to NBCF,” said Georgina.
