Larry Kestelman and I were very pleased to offer our holiday home, Vegas as the venue for this year’s SWL end of year celebration. For me personally, I was quietly overwhelmed with pride in what SWL has achieved this year and I continue to be impressed with Larry’s generosity and open heart towards the members of our giving circle and their partners.
SWL Events Chair for NSW, Kerry-Anne Johnston shone as she formally addressed the members, their partners and our sponsors. Her level of enthusiasm, work ethic and creativity is a force to behold and I can’t wait to see what she has planned for our Sydney event calendar for 2019.
We know very well at SWL that our main focus is philanthropy but it’s hard to ignore the beautiful bi product of friendship and fun that is natural when people of similar humanitarian values hang out together. Friendship and fun were in abundance on this night and it warmed my heart to see everyone enjoying the spirit of the occasion. No more details can be provided though because as we say, what happens on Vegas, stays on Vegas!
Thank you to everyone involved with the Society of Women Leaders this year. Here’s to 2019, onwards and upwards!
