Illawarra Hawks Raise over $4, 000 for Homeless Youth
Southern Youth and Family Services (SYFS) was selected the Charity of choice by the Illawarra Hawks for 2018. This was fantastic news for SYFS and we were thrilled to receive a cheque for $4,028.
The Illawarra Hawks put on a Charity Game and donated a portion of all ticket sales and money was also raised through an auction of player’s jersey to SYFS and a Hawks Golf Day.
The money raised will assist young homeless and disadvantaged people who are studying in education, attending training, commencing employment or seeking work.
SYFS would like to thank all those involved with the Hawks - owners, sponsors, management, staff and players - for the generosity and support.
We would particularly like to acknowledge the dedicated efforts and support of the Commercial Manager, Jason Saladino and Coach Rob Beveridge and a special mention to the fantastic players.
The Cheque was presented during a luncheon at SYFS Café and attended by Players, the Coach and a number of Staff and Young people from SYFS.
The young people were delighted to spend time with the players and this opportunity for the young people is so valuable. Thanks Hawks!!!!!!
