Annual Fundraising Luncheon
2022 saw a successful return to our Annual Luncheon after the pandemic caused cancellations in 2020 and 2021. We look forward to welcoming members and guests to our 27th Annual Fundraising Luncheon to be held at NSW Parliament House on 11 September 2023.
Since 1995, an Annual Luncheon has been held in September at the Strangers’ Dining Room, NSW Parliament House, Sydney with a prestigious woman guest speaker. This Luncheon is the major fundraiser for the Library. All are welcome at the Annual Luncheon and the Library is proud that students from public and private schools across the state attend.
Last year’s guest speaker was Sam Mostyn AO, formerly President of Chief Executive Women. Sam is an advocate for women in the areas of gender equity, First Nations and domestic violence. She spoke about caring: ‘What, and who, do we care about in Australia in 2022?’
Join us for a stimulating and entertaining afternoon. Please contact the Library for further information or any special requests.
Speaker: Professor Megan Davis Pro-Vice Chancellor Society (PVCS)
Date and place: Monday 11 September, 11.45 am for 12.20 pm, NSW Parliament
Professor Megan Davis is a Cobble Cobble woman of the Barunggam Nation. She is a renowned constitutional lawyer and public law expert, focusing on advocacy for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Megan Davis has been working on the Voice for 12 years. With Noel Pearson and Pat Anderson, she was a driving force for the 2017 gathering at Uluru, resulting in the landmark Statement from the Heart, which received the 2021-2022 Sydney Peace Prize. Rallying support for Australians to unite behind the Voice is now her mission.
We are honoured to have her take the time from progressing the Voice referendum to address our Luncheon.
