Our Friends of Trinity Lutheran College Foundation is delighted to be hosting the first Foundation Business Breakfast of 2022 and looking forward to once again connecting with our community. Two outstanding members of the Gold Coast Community will be speaking at this event, one being Tamika Smith. Tamika is well known for a number of different accomplishments, but one that is close to the hearts of many Gold Coasters is the #istandforkelly movement, initiated to support the children of domestic violence victim, Kelly Wilkinson and for which Tamika was listed as the “Most Influential Woman in Construction” by International company “Built”. Kelly, mother of three young children was allegedly set alight outside her home in Arundel and was tragically found dead at a house on April 20, 2021. Kelly’s estranged husband was later found and charged with murder and breaching a domestic violence order.
Tamika, a trailblazer herself in the building industry, worked tirelessly to get a house built for Kelly’s three children, ensuring that they had a place to call home and could look towards the future with some optimism.
So now, we’ve got a house to build!”
