Sleeping Under the Stars for Homeless Youth

Team Taylor Sleeps Rough for PIF’s SleepOut, raising $17,950.

Last Thursday night, Team Taylor gave up their cozy beds and joined other industry professionals to sleep under the stars for the Property Industry Foundation (PIF)’s SleepOut for homeless youth at Centennial Park.

Despite the rain, 90 individuals came together for an evening filled with informative speeches, lawn games, s’mores roasting, and networking. Attendees were fortunate to hear from Kyzar Jing, Lived Experience Advisor at the Advocate for Children and Young People and Member of the PIF Beneficiary Review Committee, who shared his eye-opening childhood homelessness experience. Elizabeth Mackison, Submission Manager at Taylor and Member of PIF’s Future Leaders Committee, highlighted the purpose of the committee and encouraged support of the Foundation.

An outstanding effort by all, with Team Taylor being recognised as the highest NSW fundraising team for the second year running. Shoutout to Scott Dobson, Senior Contract Administrator, for being awarded the highest individual fundraiser, raising an impressive $9,000!

Thank you to all our generous donors who helped raise these vital funds. All contributions will go towards building the Haven House South Dowling project, a 19-bedroom facility offering critical support for young people experiencing homelessness.

Since 2009, Taylor has been a long-standing partner and gold donor of PIF and are passionate about supporting the Foundation’s mission through various fundraising initiatives.
