It was Shakur, a 10 year old wish child who stole the show at last nights Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the “Wish House” at Fairway Bay, Gulf Harbour.
Assisting Mark Michell, Rodney National Party candidate, to cut the ribbon, Shakur told his story to a fantastic community turn out including radio, press, politicians, councillors and rotary members. Shakur told the crowd of how his wish was fulfilled, when he was taken with the help of the Make a Wish foundation to the Gold Coast to meet his hero, SpongeBob SquarePants.
Fairway Bay CEO Sean Pan thanked everyone for attending the event and said “we are committed to getting the best outcome possible at auction so we can help make many more wishes come true.”
The “Wish House” is a collaborative charity drive involving Barfoot& Thompson, GJ Gardner and Fairway Bay developer Top Harbour Limited. The project will see a house that has been built by GJ Gardner, go to auction on the 8th of November 2014 through Barfoot and Thompson. All profits from the sale are going to one of New Zealand’s favourite charities, Make-A-Wish.
