Building on that now and becoming the Official Charity Partner is fantastic".

Hawks Commercial Manager, Jason Saladino said, ‘it’s an absolute privilege for the Hawks to be partnered with such an outstanding local organisation such as SYFS who do so much to support our local youth who are vulnerable and disadvantaged. The programs and facilities they have in place are designed to assist in all areas of a young person’s wellbeing and development and we have seen first-hand the joy our players can bring to these individuals who are doing it tough.

With SYFS now the Hawk’s Official Charity Partner we look forward to assisting them in raising much-needed funds throughout the year and working closely with them wherever possible to ensure we can provide an increased level of player engagement and support’.
