Engaging Women at Friends of Montefiore Annual Brunch
Jewish Care Victoria hosted 220 guests at the 34th Annual Friends of Montefiore Brunch at Leonda by the Yarra, Hawthorn.
Sponsored by the Pratt Foundation, the annual event raised more than $80,000 which will contribute towards new services that will enhance the lives of aged care residents of Gary Smorgon House who live with dementia.
The event was addressed by journalist Martine Harte.
Martine Harte was a senior journalist for Network Ten in 2005, where her coverage of the Bali 9 arrests earned her a Gold Quill Award for excellence in journalism and a Logie award nomination.
Passionate about the advancement of females and their rights, Ms Harte said: “I encourage more women – you! – to put your hand up… to tell stories, to challenge the dominant norm. The absence of women’s voices means a narrow perspective and undermines our inner power. ”
Jewish Care CEO Bill Appleby also addressed the audience: “We are carrying forward the vision of your predecessors – your families – to build a community where everyone has a safe place to live, where everyone who wants to work has access to employment, where everyone is included and supported to live independently and with dignity.”
Martine is a qualified meditation teacher, who first took up the practice as a young girl, she passionately believes it is healing and helps drive equality.
