We at Ray White Double Bay have edged closer to our goal of raising enough money to buy a Variety bus to help disadvantaged kids with their tally reaching $16,000 over the weekend.
With more than 800 people attending the Ray White Double Bay family fun day and outdoor movie event at Steyne Park on Saturday, the team added another $4,000 to their fundraising total in one afternoon.
Supporting Variety – The Children’s Charity, Director, Michael Finger said he was extremely proud of the Ray White team and the how the community came together. “It was such a great success and the atmosphere was just beautiful. Everyone had an amazing time and we raised lots of money.“ Congratulations to the team for being so involved it really puts a stamp on our point of difference. It is a dream come true to see the team spirit and all working as one,” he said.
The Ray White Double Bay Cares programme is raising money with the aim to provide a “Sunshine Coach” to Coonamble Girls Academy in Northern NSW.
“Without this bus, many of the students from disadvantaged backgrounds only attend school intermittently. A Sunshine Coach will also enable the school to participate in and attend sporting activities such as netball, soccer and off campus excursions, which they are currently unable to do.
“The addition of the bus, will make a significant impact on the community inclusion and learning experiences these girls are currently missing out on,” Mr Finger explained.
Helping those children who live in remote locations and are otherwise unable to get to school, the Sunshine Coach has a price tag of around $30,000. Passing the halfway mark over the weekend, the Ray White Double Bay team will continue to work towards their goal.
