Colliers International held their 8th Annual Charity Lunch in Brisbane on Friday 24 March with proceeds going to their chosen charity the Property Industry Foundation (PIF).
Over 145 guests attended the event at Blackbird Bar & Grill Restaurant and were entertained by Effie, a Logie award winning actress and comedian. The money was raised through corporate sponsorships and donated items that were raffled off and auctioned on the day.
“We were delighted with the money raised and thank our key clients for supporting Colliers International business and our brand in the community,” said Simon Beirne, State Chief Executive of Queensland at Colliers International.
The mission of the Property Industry Foundation is to make a tangible difference to the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness by partnering with respected charities to build safe environments and support charity-managed initiatives focused on education, employment and well-being.
Everything the Property Industry Foundation does is made possible through the generous support of the
Corporate Donors, such as Colliers International. They work with Corporate Donors and Charity Partners in Queensland, NSW and Victoria to help rebuild young lives.
Act for Kids are one of the charities that PIF supports in Queensland. Act for Kids is a not-for-profit organisation working to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect.
Dr Katrina Lines, Executive Director of Services at Act for Kids said: “We specialise in integrated therapy to address the trauma children and young people experience. Without intervention, the outcomes for children can be very sad and include them being at high risk of homelessness as young people and adults.
“The Property Industry Foundation supports Act for Kids Integrated Therapy Service in Ipswich by funding a Speech Therapist to work with children and improve their developmental outcomes,” Dr Lines said.
