IF SCRAMBLED eggs and an orange juice over a chat with football legend Wayne Bennett sounds like your kind of morning, here is some good news.

Bennett will be the guest of honour at a breakfast fundraiser for the Warwick Safehaven later this month.

The organisation offers short-term refuge for women and children who are the victims of such violence.

Management committee member Bette Bonney said she was ecstatic to have a guest speaker of Bennett's calibre to speak at the event, which is to be held at the Warwick Golf Club.

Mrs Bonney said the league great had achieved monumental success in not only his career but also his family life.

"He is a real model and someone who genuinely cares about his family and team members and has proven himself to be a warm and personable person," she said.

"He is a very worthy role model and is such an inspiration."

The football super coach, who grew up in Allora, has achieved monumental success in his sporting career and was this year inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame.

Proceeds from the breakfast will go to the Warwick Safehaven, which Mrs Bonney said is expected to see a boost in demand for services as the festive season approaches.

"Unfortunately going into the new year is the time when domestic violence escalates and we can provide an opportunity for women and children to have a short respite out of the situation and decide on their next move," she said.

Mrs Bonney said she would like to see the business community get behind this great event.

Tickets are on sale now and until next Wednesday, November 14.

Breakfast With Wayne Bennett will be held on November 23.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at Lee Volk Jewellers in Palmerin St.
