Her Excellency the Hon Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria

Pinnacle Foundation Patron-in-Chief, Her Excellency the Hon Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria, hosted a very special event at Government House on 26 May 2021 to recognise and celebrate Pinnacle’s scholars, and to thank members of the Pinnacle family, including volunteers, donors and partners, for their generous support of The Pinnacle Foundation. The event was held just before Victoria entered a lockdown, thus explaining the reduced event size and wearing of masks.
