The Lunch has been held since 1989. It takes place in Parliament House Sydney, as near as possible to April 18, the date of Jessie’s birthday.
Over the years, the lunch has attracted a dedicated group of supporters who come away well-fed by the Parliament House chefs and inspired by the speakers and the emotionally powerful stories behind the past and current annual grant winners. The Trust is proud that this event in Jessie’s name has become a Sydney institution.
Due to COVID 19, the annual lunch has been postponed for this year.
