Caloundra Evening VIEW Club was formed in 1995.
Currently, the club sponsors eight Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.
Our club has a positive interest in local activities, with many members not only supporting the disadvantaged children in our area but also volunteering in many and various ways.
Members of our club are a diverse group of about 120 women from many walks of life and life stages. Our official meeting is held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Caloundra Power Boat Club, with an average attendance of some 90 enthusiastic members.
Our members meet regularly to share their passion and experience. They build lasting friendships and make a tremendous difference in the lives of the young students whom our club supports. We welcome women from all walks of life to join us and make a difference. We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what VIEW is all about.
- Meeting Day is 2nd Tuesday each month

Once each year we fundraise by engaging in the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle and the Sunshine Coast Marathon. Some members are also supporting The Smith Family Learning For Life program by actively working with disadvantaged children as mentors or tutors. Our Club also provides financial support, sponsoring ongoing education for eight of these students.
Keep up to date with what is happening around the clubs.
A Lifetime of Service Rewarded

A very elegant Mrs June Shaw was presented with her 50 year pin by Zone Councillor Margaret Elliott at the March meeting of Caloundra Evening VIEW Club. One hundred club members were present for the celebratory dinner. June was National Councillor from 1994 to 1996 and was awarded the Order of Australia in May, 2003 for her service to VIEW Clubs. June responded with a very humble and gracious speech about her lifetime of service to the VIEW Club and the Smith Family Charity which brought a standing ovation from members inspired by her incredible service to the community.

Caloundra VIEW Club brings extra Easter cheer to store
On Easter Saturday morning, five members of Caloundra Evening VIEW were invited to promote our VIEW objective by cutting, buttering and offering a large number of hot cross buns to patrons of Bunnings. This was done over a two hour period for a large number of Bunnings customers, many of whom asked who we were representing. We explained that our objective was to highlight our organisation which raises funds for the education of disadvantaged children. We thank Bunnings for this opportunity.

Dinner at Tiffany's—23rd Birthday
Caloundra Evening VIEW Club enjoyed a magical celebration at our recent gala 23rd Birthday Dinner. The theme for the evening was ‘Dinner at Tiffany’s – Audrey Hepburn Style with Diamonds and Pearls’. Members were excited to wear fashions created by screen legend Audrey Hepburn, accenting their outfits with a stunning display of classic jewellery. Founding member Carol and newest member, Juliet, cut the 23rd birthday cake, while guests were also served from spectacular tiered cupcake stands. The evening continued with animated dancing to the music of entertainers Barney & Di of ‘Kwozzi’ who played a mixture of old time and modern music.
