Women in Property Support Cyber Safety
The who’s who of Adelaide’s property industry descended upon the Intercontinental on 18th September for the 2013 Fabulous Women in Property Luncheon.
This year’s guest speaker was the inspiring Sonya Ryan, Director of The Carly Ryan Foundation, SA Australian of the Year 2013 and cyber safety campaigner. Ms Ryan spoke about coping with the brutal murder of her fifteen year old daughter and turning her unfathomable pain into a powerful campaign to educate children and parents about the dangers of the internet.
Ms Ryan said ‘Without the support of corporate industry and businesses like Edge Recruitment, The Carly Ryan Foundation would simply be unable to support the community. It’s events like this that enable us to reach many more children, teens and young adults which equals preventing more crime and suffering in Australia.’
Tickets for the stunning Nicholas Pike jewellery prize valued at $4800 sold like wild fire at pre-luncheon drinks. Nicholas himself proudly awarded the lucky winner to Libby Jensen from Telstra, with a little help on stage from our male model and some mocktails.
As well as special gift bags, delicious food and fine wines, guests had the chance to win a corporate box for 11 people to South Pacific, the musical, donated by Adelaide Festival Centre.
Edge Recruitment Director Jane Carey said ‘We are thrilled to not only give all proceeds from the day to The Carly Ryan Foundation, but also raise awareness about cyber predators, fake profiles, cyber bullying and protecting private information.’
A big thank you goes out to our wonderful sponsors; Telstra, Ken Hall Plumbers, the Australian Property Institute (SA) and the Real Estate Institute of SA. Without their fantastic support we would not be able to produce Adelaide’s premier luncheon and networking event for women in property.
