YOUthOK Inaugural Event on September 12, was a great success! Community support far exceeded the charity’s expectations, and it was great to hear all the special guests speaking from the heart.
The crowd was so engaged with the special guests, and Gordon Bray very generously donated his time to YOUthOK MC the event.
There was a great line up including: Leanne Westlake and Leroy Wiseman from One Eighty Avalon, Dr. Gunter Sowoba from Making Good Men Great, Luke Holmes General Manager of the Warringah Rats, Sam Bloom author of Penguin Bloom and, Father Chris Riley Youth Off The Streets CEO.
Talking about youth suicide and youth homelessness is tough and David Hawkins says, “we need the community to start talking” and, Dr. Gunter Sowoba added, “we need to be pro-active and start connecting with the people around us”.
