THE number one Australian office of Australasia’s biggest property group, Ray White Double Bay, has thrown its support behind Sony Foundation, a charity aimed at helping young Australians facing the toughest adversity.
Sony Foundation is the charitable arm of the Sony Group of companies operating in Australia including; Sony Australia, Sony Music Entertainment Australia, Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia, Sony Mobile Communications, Sony Pictures Releasing, Sony Pictures TV, Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Since its inception in 1998, Sony Foundation has raised more than $29 million for youth-related causes.
Ray White Double Bay will now be donating approx $70,000 which is $100 from each sale, along with other fundraising initiatives to proudly align its team of high performing agents and property managers with such an inspiring charity.
“Sony Foundation’s work raising money to fund programs to support for Australia’s unwell and underprivileged young people is nothing short of amazing and we’re proud to be able to contribute to the great work they do,” said Ray White Double Bay Director, Elliott Placks.
“From their ‘You Can’ youth cancer program which funds specialised youth cancer centres and services around Australia for adolescent and young adult patients to their ’Children’s Holiday Camp Program’ a unique respite program that sees high school and university students taken on the care of children with special needs, providing their families with invaluable respite. Sony Foundation’s work covering multiple aspects is something we’re excited be a part of,” Mr Placks said.
Sony Foundation Australia’s CEO, Sophie Ryan said she was excited to welcome the team from Ray White Double Bay.
“Sony Foundation is thrilled to have a Rainbow Partner in Ray White Double Bay. The generous donation of $100 per house sold will go a long way in supporting young people though our life-changing programs.”
