Celebrating philanthropy during race week.
Hamilton Island, 24 August 2018.
SWL members, sponsors and friends gathered during Hamilton Island Race Week to celebrate the ongoing philanthropic achievements of Society of Women Leaders.
Sponsored by the National Basketball League and hosted by Larry Kestelman and Anita Pahor onboard Vegas, 40 guests enjoyed a cocktail cruise while discussing the iconic Australian yacht race as well as the work of Society of Women Leaders.
Members from across Australia attended the evening together with their partners, SWL sponsors and guests who were keen to hear about the circle of giving.
As seems to be the custom at SWL events, guests stayed on to connect with each other after the formalities were over and a spontaneous dance party under a canopy of magnificent stars ensured a true spirit of celebrating humanity was enjoyed by all. Melbourne Member, Krista Vendy might be tabling a new event idea for consideration of the national SWL sponsorships and events sub-committee: the annual SWL dance off!
We were thrilled to welcome another new member to our giving circle - she and her partner were so inspired by the evening and the SWL members present that they announced their commitment on the night.
We are very encouraged to see our philanthropy club continue to grow attracting inspiring, caring and generous women who love life and want to give back. With this growth comes the most important part of our work: our capacity to help more people in need increases.
Thank you Larry, Anita and the National Basketball League.
