Progress on “the Wish House” was celebrated today with a classic kiwi roof shout at Fairway Bay, Gulf Harbour.
GJ Gardner’s General Manager, Matt Lelean said at the event that “GJ’s are excited and proud to be involved in this project”. He acknowledged Windowmakers for the loan of their fabulous BBQ trailer unit in support of the function. Attended by the construction team together with guests of Make A Wish, Barfoot and Thompson, and the team from Fairway Bay, the roof shout turned into something of an impromptu street party for this fledgling community.
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 be built by GJ Gardner over the next four months, for auction on the 8th of November 2014 by Barfoot and Thompson. All profits from the sale are going to one of New Zealand’s favourite charities, Make-A-Wish.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children aged 3-17 throughout NZ with life threatening medical conditions to bring them hope, strength and joy at a very challenging time in their lives. Make-A-Wish CEO Shane Gorst says Make-A-Wish CEO Shane Gorst says “We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Fairway Bay for the second year in a row alongside Barfoot & Thompson and G J Gardener on this exciting community event. The proceeds from the Wish House will go a long way towards making wishes come true for special kiwi kids locally here on the North Shore, and all over New Zealand”
Fairway Bay CEO Sean Pan refers to his ongoing support for Make-A-Wish saying “this is our second major charity initiative with Make-A-Wish. We feel strongly that the contribute they make to the community is both relevant and valuable.”
