Autumn Luncheon with Carmel Guerra OAM

The MWF Autumn Luncheon was held on Friday 30 April at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club.  On a magnificent sunny day, over 60 of our members and guests enjoyed a glass of bubbles and mingled on the balcony overlooking the historic tennis grounds.

We heard from our special guest speaker Carmel Guerra OAM.  As the experienced Founder and CEO of Centre for Multicultural Youth, Carmel shared with us some personal stories about her own experiences growing up in Melbourne and gave us an informed understanding of the many challenges faced by young refugee and migrant women across Australia.
