A Lipstick Lunch sounds like fun and we can happily say it was!
On Friday 24th of May, 2019 Glad Group attended the annual Youth Off the Streets Ladies Lipstick Lunch, held at Doltone House Hyde Park. It was a fantastic opportunity to support the great work Father Chris Riley’s and his team do every day. Helping disadvantaged kids across Australia is their passion and we were very happy to lend our support.
From mystery envelopes, magical keys to winning lips, there were plenty of ways to get involved and raise needed funds. In the fun of it all, Glad’s marketing team – Chanel Avias, Michelle Pecnik and Taylor Fasulas were lucky enough to take home some lipstick champagne!
Hosted by Sandra Sully, senior journalist and anchor of 10 News First Sydney and recently appointed Consulting News Editor 10 Daily. Guests enjoyed a lively discussion between special guests Angela Bishop, Entertainment Reporter from Channel 10, Laurel Papworth Social Media Influencer and Kate Traill, Specialist Child Sexual Assault Judge of the District Court of New South Wales, who exchanged career stories and gave some tips on what they do to juggle their family and professional lives.
Father Chris Riley, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Youth off the Streets, was a real source of inspiration. Having dedicated his life to building the charity, developing specialised programs and opening schools. He and his team make a real difference to the lives of many disadvantage youth. We had the opportunity to hear from one of their participants and the positive influence Youth Off the Streets had on her life.
Glad Group has always embraced the opportunity to support community, particularly those most vulnerable. To know that over 42,000 youth are homeless every night across Australia, we plan on doing more, so watch this space.
