The Link Housing inaugural fundraiser Home Sweet 2017 is launched!
What is it?
It’s a sleepover that will be held on Friday September 15th, at Freshwater Surf Lifesaving Club which aims to raise more than $100,000, which will go directly to The Burdekin Association – yes that’s right we are the lucky sole recipients!
Link Housing and the Burdekin have a long history together supporting youth on the Northern Beaches – over 25 years and so this fundraiser is really special to us.
We are really excited that our CEO Justene and staff members Neil and Warren will all be sleeping over at the event. They will hopefully be joined by many of our local community who want to take part and they invite you to join them too! What if you can’t? How about you sponsor Justene here or someone else or simply just donate?
The main fundraising page for the event is over at www.homesweetraisely.com, where you can go to donate, see the people who are participating (including Justene), others who are donating and hopefully see the dollars rising steadily. You will also find further details about the event, like how to get involved and/or sponsored, the event itself, what to bring/wear etc and for more information. Here is another link to Link Housing Home Sweet 2017 website.
We are so thankful to Link Housing for this amazing opportunity to help local youth. The importance of a safe home for young people and the extent of homelessness on the Northern Beaches must not be underestimated – it is a very real and growing problem.
