Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Celebrating Health And Wellness With International Men’s Day Breakfast

Shed Happens Mackay is set to celebrate International Men’s Day on 17th November this year. The organisation celebrates this event annually, with a corporate charity breakfast on or near International Men’s Day, which falls on 19th November.

Sponsored by DGH Engineering and supported by DBCT, this is Shed Happens Mackay’s premier event, being supported by an Art Show in August and presentation of Mackay Man Of The Year at the International Men’s Day breakfast.

Our sponsors include DBCT, 2iT Technology, Bushman’s Bakery and we were fortunate to receive a RADF Grant. The RADF Grant is a joint initiative of the State Government and MRC.

Shed Happens Mackay’s theme for International Men’s Day 2023 is the third pillar of IMD, ‘Health and wellness for all generations of men’, for the ‘Shed Interview’ with Ian Rowan and the ever-popular small group discussion around the tables.

The organisation will conduct an Art Auction of three artworks, one of which won Best at Show, titled ‘Internal Oath/Eternal Growth’, a 2nd prize titled ‘A Healing Campfire’ and a donated painting. This is the fourth year of awarding Mackay Man Of The Year, and it is proving very competitive.
