An annual Mother's Day Brunch will be held at Zona on Sunday to raise money for the Dance Fuse charity group in memory of Orange mother and dance teacher Steph Sandford.
Anna Sutton was friends with Mrs Sandford for 26 years before she died of brain cancer in October 2019 and is helping with the fundraising brunch.
"The event will be run by Dance Fuse to celebrate the simply wonderful mums in our lives as well as the ones that are no longer with us," Miss Sutton said.
Miss Sutton said Dance Fuse started as an organisation run by Mrs Sandford.
"Her legacy has turned to a not-for-profit organisation," Miss Sutton said.
"It still is a dance school."
However, she said it is now run to encourage school children to experience dance and profits go to a range of other charities and families who are facing troubling times and vulnerable children who Mrs Sandford used to support.
She said some of the charities include the Children's Cancer Institute, the Mark Hughes Foundation for brain cancer research, and Destiny Rescue, which saves children from global trafficking.
"This is the first time we've done this for Steph for Dance Fuse," Miss Sutton said.
Although the not for-profit-organisation was launched early last year, COVID-19 meant a similar event to the brunch could not take place.
The brunch will start at 10.30am and will include arts and craft activities for children to create gifts for their mums. There will also be a photo booth for mums and children, and a raffle.
The cost is $50 for adults and $20 for children and bookings are to be made online by Friday.
