And the winners are…

Seeds of Affinity and Talk Out Loud were each awarded $100,000 by our giving circle at last night’s Awards Event.

These two innovative South Australian charities have received the well-deserved funding boost, with runners-up Holiday Explorers and Lolly Jar Circus splitting the remaining pooled funds raised in 2022, with $45,000 each.

We were honoured to have our Ambassadors Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC, Carolyn Hewson AO, and Raymond Spencer in attendance (with apologies from Jane Doyle AM).

Our four finalists gave incredible presentations, along with the fabulous support of their mentors Craig Whiteman from EY, Sheenagh Edwards from KPMG, Elizabeth Elliot from Perks, and Imelda Alexopolous from PwC, who introduced them before members lodged their votes.

While votes were tallied, Ambassador Raymond Spencer interviewed last year’s winners, Habitat for Humanity South Australia and HopeStreet, to hear more about how those organisations had benefited from the 2021 grants.

There are so many people and organisations to thank for helping run this wonderful event, keep an eye out on our social media over the coming week as we take the time to thank each and every one!
