Sydney Young Leaders 2023 Kick Off

The Sydney Young Leaders held their Kickoff Drinks on Thursday 23 February 2023.

We were hosted by The Opera Bar, and we sincerely appreciate the hospitality and generosity. It is such an iconic incredible venue. Thank you for having us!

We were delighted to see so many old and new faces on Thursday, along with our friends from The Lansdowne Club, Irish Support Agency, Darkness into Light and Sydney St Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival.

Through our raffle and generous donations, we raised $1,245 for charity. Thank you to The Lansdowne Club for offering two tickets to their legendary St Patrick’s Day Lunch for the raffle, and congratulations to Chris Hickey for being our winner.

Looking into 2023 the Young Leaders are very excited to be planning more opportunities to connect and are looking forward to celebrating St Patrick’s Day at the Lansdowne Lunch and the St Patrick Day Festival. We are planning more Young Leaders events and will once again be holding our Global 5k in September 2023.
