The Property Industry Foundation’s Annual Charity Sailing Challenge will be held 20 March, 2015 and is expected to raise in excess of last year’s $100,000 target, to support homeless and at risk youth in Victoria.
Sponsored by Brookfield, the Charity Sailing Challenge will be hosted at the Royal Brighton Yacht Club with America’s Cup Skipper John Bertrand AM as Event Patron.
Proceeds from the event will go to Open Family Australia’s Chatterbox Bus Program, which offers services to disadvantaged young people throughout the CBD and Wyndham area.
“We are again looking forward to the Charity Sailing Challenge. It provides property professionals with the opportunity to engage, network and have some fun while making a significant impact into the lives of at risk youth,” said Daryl Browning, Chairman of Property Industry Foundation Victoria.
Event numbers are capped at 45 yachts and currently 35 companies have registered.
High profile corporates such as APN Property Group Limited, Brookfield, Brookfield Multiplex, Bunnings Group, CBRE, Cedar Woods, Charter Hall, EY, Federation Centres, Hacer Group, ICMG, Investa, Knight Frank, Mirvac, Napier & Blakeley, Novion Property Group, Quintessential Equity and Urbis have already registered.
A Greek themed party follows the sailing with themed food, drinks and entertainment.
