The Campbelltown community has once again demonstrated its generous spirit after $41,677 was raised at the Mayor’s Charity Gala Dinner to support a new youth-focused program from Humanity Matters.

More than 200 people attended the Vegas-themed evening hosted by Mayor Dr George Greiss at Ottimo House on Saturday 2 March.

Funds raised from the event will support Humanity Matters’ new ‘Feet on the Street’ program, which will provide new arts and sports programs for highly marginalised young people in Campbelltown, helping to connect them with Humanity Matters’ specialist youth workers.

“As Campbelltown continues to grow and move forward, it’s important that we think about the young people who are the future of our city. There are more than 34,000 people aged between 10 and 25 who live in Campbelltown, almost 20% of our population,” Dr Greiss said.

“Humanity Matters do a great job connecting with young people who may be struggling with their mental health or who are disconnected from the mainstream, and giving them opportunities and pathways into education, employment and other services,” he said.

“I would like to thank all our sponsors and all those who attended the evening and contributed their money to support this fantastic cause, your generosity will make a real difference in the lives of young people in Campbelltown.”

The Mayor’s Charity Gala Dinner was supported by Gold sponsors Campbelltown Mall and Menangle Park by Dahua Group. Silver sponsors included Cameron Brae Group, Marsdens Law Group and Saxon Developments.
