South Australian Charity Luncheon

The largest social and networking event for the South Australian insurance industry, the South Australian Charity Luncheon attracts a large number of industry professionals.

Now in its 44th year, the luncheon has gained an enviable reputation as one of the key charity and networking events on the South Australian calendar and offers the opportunity to meet like-minded industry professionals while supporting the local community. 

In 2017, the event will again be raising funds for SIDS and Kids SA. Last year the luncheon raised more than $8,000 for SIDS and Kids SA.

SIDS and Kids SA is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood, and to supporting bereaved families. SIDS and Kids SA has been providing support to families for 40 years and is the only bereavement support organisation providing free professional ongoing support to these families. SIDS and Kids SA does not receive any government funding and therefore relies on the support of the community through fundraising and donations to ensure their services can continue.

Held at the Adelaide Convention Centre, the ticket price includes a two-course luncheon with beer, wine and soft drinks. Fundraising activities include a silent auction, wine wall, raffle and scotch bottle coin toss.

    Jessica Adamson

    News Reporter

    Jessica Adamson joined the Seven Network as a reporter for Adelaide’s number one news service, Seven News, in 1997.

    Jessica began her career at the Stock Journal Newspaper after completing her Journalism Degree at the University of South Australia. 

    Jessica’s upbringing on the family farm at Hallett, in the Mid North of South Australia, gave her a solid background in rural affairs. She began as a general reporter with the Seven Network covering everything from the Sydney Olympics to the Whyalla Airlines plane crash.

    Jessica was the Crime Reporter for Seven News for 10 years before taking a year off to care for her children. The role of Crime Reporter has included countless stories on murder investigations, fatal road accidents, major fires and robberies.

    Jessica has amassed a great deal of experience reporting in Indonesia, covering the drug trials of Schapelle Corby, Michelle Leslie and the Bali Nine, along with the Bali bombings, the hunt for terrorists and in 2004 the devastating tsunamis where she spent two and a half weeks reporting from the devastation in Banda Aceh.

    Other career highlights include covering the Beaconsfield Mine Disaster, the sex crime investigation of former St Peter's College chaplain, John Mountford, the Baxter Detention Centre riots - and perhaps the hardest story in her career, the tragic drowning of baby Leonardo LeGrand in the River Torrens.
