Mark Bouris goes to jail

Yellow Brick Road Executive Chairman Mark Bouris was locked up in Martin Place last Friday to support the Police-Citizens Youth Welfare Association’s (PCYC).

The Police-Citizens Youth Welfare Association’s (PCYC) Time4Kids event raises money to support programs to keep at-risk youth off the street.

Bouris was detained in a mock jail cell, under the supervision of a police officer until he reached his set bail. The voluntary prisoners were appealing to the public to ‘bail them out’ through donations to the charity.

Bouris has been an active fundraiser for Time4Kids and this is his fourth time getting locked up to support the cause.

“The PCYC have been good to me over a long period of time and I wanted to help them raise the funds they need to make a difference. I know how important it is for kids to have somewhere to go, where there is someone who cares about them,” he said.

Each year during the month of April Time4Kids events are held across Australia. Hundreds of participants from all walks of life – community members and leaders, business leaders and owners,  celebrities and sporting heroes come together to support PCYC and Do Time to Stop Youth Crime.

PCYC are a non-for-profit organisation and all the money fundraised will go towards youth based programs and making the clubs a better place for the youth in our community.

The fundraiser is run by City Of Sydney PCYC in collaboration with Glebe PCYC.
