On Tuesday the 12th February members gathered together at Bayview Heights to welcome in our new year - Al Fresco style. With the forecast of 38 degrees we braved the elements and sat under the Vergola sipping on icy cold sparkling water and nibbling on Italian morsels.
The last time we were together was aboard the Vegas celebrating the end of an incredible 2018, so conversation flowed as we exchanged holiday stories with one another of places visited and times spent with family and friends.
Taking a moment to pause from the excited chatting, our Chair Anita guided us back to the purpose of why we were here today, to hear about the vision for Society of Women Leaders in 2019 and how we are collectively going to support our chosen programs of the Australian Red Cross, as always Anita inspires us to reach a little further in our philanthropy journeys and to continue to be part of this incredible legacy we are building together.
To fulfill our promised financial support to the ARC, the wonderful Kerry-Anne Johnston – the NSW Events Chair, shared with us the platforms in which we are going to be able to do this. With an incredible line up of events – the largest being our 5th Anniversary Gala Event on the 17th of September there is no doubt this will be achieved.
Concluding our lunch together on a special moment, we welcomed in our newest member the beautiful Nici McCarroll, may your time as part of SWL be all and more than you hoped for.
