Community Cricket Luncheon
In conjunction with the Carnegie Cricket Club, we held a special summer community luncheon at their club rooms to raise awareness of Domestic Violence and to raise funds for Violence Free Families and other Rotary projects.
Guest speaker Kristy McKellar, a leading advocate of family violence reform, told of her own personal story as a survivor of domestic violence. You could hear a pin drop as we learnt about the very real impact to her and her daughter.
Assistant Commissioner Stephen Fontana followed Kristy to give an account of what the police face and what changes there have been over his four decades with Victoria Police.
Sergeant Arran Ferguson provided a local viewpoint and what we can do as community groups to make a difference.
Attended by Member for Caulfield, David Southwick MP, the Mayor of the City of Glen Eira Neil Pilling and other councillors, the event was an outstanding day, raising close to $2000.back to Gallery
