As part of Time for Kids’ 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2010, a very special lunch was held at the Lion Hotel. Organised by Georgina Hardy and the Time for Kids Fundraising Committee, the lunch was attended by over 100 business leaders, each of whom were handpicked and invited by the captains of  the Fundraising Committee for their leadership in the South Australian community and sense of social justice.

Thanks to extraordinary support from SA wine makers, local businesses and The Lion Hotel’s Tim Gregg, the day was a fantastic success. At the enthusiastic suggestion of guests, it was decided the lunch would become an annual event. The name ‘Lionhearts’ was chosen to honour both the group’s origins at the inaugural Lion Lunch, and the wonderful generosity of the lionhearted men and women who made the lunch such a success.

Over the six years they’ve been running, Lionhearts Lunches have raised more than $200,000, invested directly to support the work of Time for Kids. This is an astounding figure, which has enabled Time for Kids to  change the lives of hundreds of kids in need in South Australia.  Each year the lunch has grown in popularity and the demand for seats is high. The lunch is a unique opportunity to enjoy a spectacular range of local wines,  a brilliant meal prepared by the Lion’s chefs and network in the fantastic company of fellow South Australian business and community leaders.

Lionhearts 2016 was held on Friday 21 October. To register your interest in attending Lionhearts 2017, you can subscribe to our Lionhearts mailing list below.
