The foundations for the Fairway Bay Wish House have been poured, and building work is underway in Pinecrest Drive, Gulf Harbour.
GJ Gardner’s Managing Director Elaine Morley says notwithstanding the 130 homes she is building this year in the Rodney District, she is delighted to be involved in the project at Fairway Bay. “For us it is one of the ways that we can be giving back to the 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 8thNovember 2014 by Barfoot and Thompson. All profitsfrom 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 “We are dedicated to making every eligible child’s wish come true. With this kind of support, we will be able to grant over 200 wishes in 2014.”
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 look forward to it being a huge success and hope there are many more in the future.”
