The sold out event will see more than 700 guests celebrate the centenary of the Kennett family-owned commercial construction business at the stunning Adelaide Oval, while also supporting The Jodi Lee Bowel Cancer Foundation.

Our partnership with Kennett Builders was formed due to their close connection with bowel cancer. Managing Director John Kennett’s mother Jean, lost her life to the disease at the age of 58.

Keen to promote early detection, John introduced our Corporate Bowel Screening Program to his 45 employees in 2013. As a result an otherwise healthy 38-year-old employee discovered a concerning polyp, which was removed and he now has a plan in place to monitor and manage his health.

A big thank you to the generous businesses and individuals who have supported the event by providing auction items – James Thredgold Jeweller, Adelaide Crows, ResourceCo, Greg Pearce from Treasury Wine Estate, Ally Parsons, Anna Mears, Marlene Wood, Simone Hanckel, and Phil Rankine.

All proceeds raised from fundraising activities on the night will be donated to the Foundation to help fund its bowel cancer prevention initiatives.
