DESPITE pouring rain, the Wish House Street Party went full steam ahead.
There was plenty of action packed into Pinecrest Drive, Fairway Bay, on Saturday afternoon with the World’s Tallest Inflatable Slide, entertainment, bouncy castles, games, face painting and food vendors.
The road had been closed for the party, ensuring it would be a safe family event.
Kiwi band Titanium signed autographs and belted out new single, Take Us Back to the 250 strong crowd.
The party celebrated the Wish House, a collaborative charity drive involving Barfoot& Thompson, GJ Gardner Homes NZ and Fairway Bay developer Top Harbour. The project has seen a house built in Fairway Bay by GJ Gardner.
The three bedroom home will be auctioned on November 8 by Barfoot& Thompson, with profits going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The proceeds will provide ‘‘a whole lot of wishes’’ for children with lifethreatening illnesses, MakeA-Wish chief executive Shane Gorst says.
“This house really is quite special,” GJ Gardner Rodney franchise owner Elaine Morley says.
“Not only will it raise important funds for an amazing charity, at the same time it will provide a family with a beautiful home.” Suburban Newspapers, publisher of the North Harbour News, is a supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation NZ.
