Auctioneer Damien Cooley is calling for the real estate industry to sleep on the iconic Bondi Beach for one night on July 24 to help raise $500,000 for charity.
Known as the Real Estate Sleep Out and held for the second time, this year’s event is looking at getting 500 agents to raise half a million dollars for Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets.
“Last year for the inaugural Real Estate Sleep Out, we had 104 people from the real estate industry sleeping out on Bondi Beach and raised just over $134,000.
“This year, we would love all of the real estate agencies to get behind and support this event by promoting it within their networks,” Cooley said.
“Youth Off The Street is all about taking kids off the street and giving them a home and as agents and auctioneers, we put people in homes for a living,” he said.
On the night of the event, the Youth Off The Streets food van will come down to the beach and serve dinner to the participants. Youth Off The Streets patron Father Chris Riley will also be in attendance.
The registration fee for this fundraiser is $55 per person. For more information on the event head to realestatesleepout.com.au
