The 2015 Stars in the Garden was the most successful fundraising event EVER for Youth Opportunities, raising over $225,000!!
Negative self-image, depression, substance abuse, neglect and disengagement from school are just some of the issues facing young South Australians today.
Without the right support system many risk falling into a cycle of disadvantage and long term unemployment so that’s why Maxwell Wines has chosen to support Youth Opportunities as a major Sponsor.
Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program provides young people with the tools and skills to better understand themselves and make the right choices for their future.
The Program focuses on a range of topics including self-confidence, bullying, positive communication and relationships, motivation for school or study and finding your future career.
Each year 600 young people across South Australia partake in the program. Not only positively changing their own lives, they are also helping to influence those around them and bring about positive cultural change within their schools and the wider community. To date over 10,000 young people have benefited from the Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program.
As a major sponsor for the ‘Stars in the Garden’ fundraiser event, Maxwell Wines provided the wine for 200-300 guests. Maxwell Wines in conjunction with the Ellen Street Restaurant also put forward two auction items; a degustation lunch with matching wines for 4 people and two rooms that night at the McLaren Vale Studio Apartments, plus a Lime Cave function for 12 people, together raising over $8000.
