    On the 6th of September PCYC Port Stephens will be running our major fund-raising event, Time4Kids.

    During Time4Kids community members and leaders, business leaders, celebrities and sporting heroes volunteer and commit to do time to stop youth crime. We are hoping that you, as one of our local leaders, would consider helping to raise funds for us to provide a diverse range of activities and programs for the young people of Port Stephens.

    What are we asking you to do?

    We are holding our event at Market Place on the 6th of September and we would like to “detain” you for around half an hour in our special mock jail. It’s a fun event and you can invite your colleagues, friends and family to support you. To be released from our jail, you will aim to raise a minimum of $500 bail, but we will accept increased contributions towards your freedom!

    The idea is for you to pre-arrange sufficient donations to meet the minimum bail of $500 – you can raise all your donations through our website at www.pcycnsw.org.au/time4kids. Donations $2 and over are tax deductible. If you can’t spare time to spend behind bars here is where you can also leave an obligation free donation

    This is a great opportunity for you to join other community leaders and be a part of an exciting event that will attract strong media interest, and will be of great benefit to our local community.

    To help you get into the spirit of the event, on the day you will be provided with a “prisoner” uniform to wear and a tin to rattle while locked up.

    Please feel free to contact Rebecca Fleming, Time4kids Co coordinator, PCYC Port Stephens
    on Ph. 0407210014 to accept my invitation to be involved in this fantastic event or email me on rfleming@pcycnsw.org.au

    We look forward to you doing time for kids!
