As the major sponsor of the Real Futures Foundation, Soldiers Point Marina hosted a Cocktail party at The Point Restaurant recently to thank current sponsors and welcome new sponsors to the Foundation that provides many innovative programs to students from Tomaree High and St Philips Christian College.

The programs help Year 10 students from both schools pursue a productive pathway and set realistic goals to further their education, take advantage of training opportunities and undertake work experience or work placement.

Well known Newcastle sailing identity and catastrophe survivor Tony Purkiss kept the crowd spellbound by his accounts of his near death experiences including the 1998 Sydney to Hobart Yacht race and the 2005 Bali suicide bombing that has cost him his sight.

Another highlight of the evening was the presence of some very talented Port Stephens junior sports people including Will Dunn from the Soldiers Point Sailing School who received his Basic Skills 2 Certificate from Chief Sailing Instructor Graham Oborn.

Real Futures Ambassadors from Tomaree High assisted on the night and they play a strong leadership role in the program at their school.

Paul and Julie Simpson from The Point Restaurant sponsored the evening – a big thanks to them as Benefactors of the Real Futures Foundation.

If you or your business would be interesting in providing support to a young person from the Tomaree Peninsula please check out the Real Futures website at www.realfutures.com.au or phone (02) 4984 7088 for more information.
