Sleeping Out for Change

Southern Cross Group CEO Sam Johnson has once again taken part in the annual Vinnies ‘CEO Sleepout’ to help raise money and awareness for the plight of the thousands of homeless people struggling during these dark winter nights. More than just a networking event, this endeavour hopes to engender real empathy from those for whom homelessness is often so far from mind. Beginning as a local community venture in Parramatta in 2006, the Sleepout has now grown to become an annual event that raises upwards of $5,000,000 for charities dealing with this ever worsening issue.

Sharing his experience of the event Sam Johnson stated that he had the chance to meet Rabbi Dovid Slavin (founder and director of Our Big Kitchen in Bondi, Chaplain to the NSW Ambulance service, co-founder of Gift of Life Australia, and director of The Rabbinical College of Sydney & Yeshiva College) as well as Monika Tu – Director of ‘Black Diamondz Property Concierge’.

Build For A Cure – The Story so Far

southern cross group support for Children’s Cancer Institute

Southern Cross Group are delighted to be supporting partners for the Children’s Cancer Institute initiative ‘Build for a Cure’. Members of the SCG team enjoyed helping out at the official ‘Reveal Day’ for a brand new fully furnished four-bedroom home, built from the ground up at Billy’s Lookout in Lake Macquarie to raise funds and awareness for International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This initiative aims to help fund medical research and ultimately save lives of children with cancer and offer support to their families.

Even a drizzly sky couldn’t dampen people’s spirits and SCG ensured there was plenty to keep people entertained on the day, providing a free Barbecue lunch and a Pass the Ball competition manned by none other than Parramatta and State of Origin star Brett Kenny. Some of the children who took part in the competition displayed great potential. Perhaps we witnessed the birth of some future NRL stars in the making!

We’re ready for a great turnout and a fantastic result at Auction Day later this month on October 23rd.
