Valentine’s Day at HFCC 2013

In a delightful coincidence, the Gala Dinner for the 2013 Helping Families Change Conference falls on Valentine’s Day this year!

To mark the special occasion, the conference organizers are encouring delegates to put their best Valentine’s day frocks on and come prepared for a night of flair and excitment.

Described as a feature of the annual HFCC, the Gala Dinner will have good food, wine, and live music happening right throughout the night and delegates are invited to relax, unwind and enjoy the opportunity to socialise with other delegates from across the world in a night of fun-filled entertainment. The 2013 HFCC Dinner promises to be one of the best on record with now over 200 delegates already registered to attend.

If last year’s conference is anything to go by, the night is truly not to be missed (pictured below are delegates attending the 2012 HFCC dinner in Glasgow, Scotland).
