Whats on in Sydney
Sydney is a beautiful city and a fantastic place to explore. With its eye-opening art, theatre and exhibitions, world class sporting events, amazing nightlife and cultural events, and stunning harbours and beaches, there is truly something for everyone.
Accor Race to Survive 2012
Accor Race to Survive was a huge success in 2011 with over $200,000 raised to support Mission Australia. Mercure Sydney will again be supporting this important event by entering our own team, the Mercure Sydney City Slickers. The team consists of four staff members from very different areas of the hotel including Cathryn Dudman from Event Sales, Tristan Douwes from Food and Beverage, and Amanda Lloyd and James Young from Front Office. All members bring very different talents to the team and are extremely excited to be representing Mercure Sydney in this grueling 3 day challenge of speed, strength and skill.
While the Race itself is a huge challenge for our team, the larger goal is to achieve a fundraising target of $10,000. By donating to the Mercure Sydney City Slickers you can help fund the Sydney based Mission Australia Centre (MAC). The first service of its kind in Australia, the MAC provides holistic and integrated quality support services for homeless men. The MAC offers specialised care and accommodation, encourages independent living, and provides dental, medical, education, counseling and employment services. Through this holistic approach, the MAC has developed into a hub not only for residents, but also the wider community. The aim of the Centre is to break the cycle of homelessness by facilitating increased sustainable economic and social participation.
Accor Race to Survive 2012 will take place at the iconic M Gallery Fairmont Resort in the NSW Blue Mountains from Wed 31 October – Friday 2 November. To donate to the Mercure Sydney City Slickers and support Mission Australia visit www.fundraiseonline.com.au/MercureSydneyCitySlickers/
