Thank you to everyone who took part in the Telethon Home Auction on Sunday. A record $25,854,524 was raised over the entire weekend, which included $707,500 from the sale of the 2015 Catalina Telethon Home by InVogue.
More than 500 people, including loads of kids and families, took part in the festivities. We also had guest appearances from Channel 7 celebrities, including House Rules judge Wendy Moore and Adam Dovile from Better Homes and Gardens.
Every year, we build thousands of homes for families in WA. But this project is particularly special to us, because proceeds go to support sick kids and young people in WA who need vital funding for care and research.
The big event of the day was, of course, the auction of the 2015 Catalina Telethon Home by InVogue. A record number of people inspected the home before the Auction, which started at 11am.
The successful bidders were a young family of 4 from Coffs Harbour, who had only just moved to Perth a short time ago. After the auction, Craig shared his thoughts on his family’s brand new home. “I think we’ll love it here,” he said.
Ron Farris from Century 21 wielded the Auctioneer’s hammer, in his typical vibrant style.
Telethon is all about supporting sick kids and young people in WA, which is one good reason why the Telethon Home Auction has plenty of adventures for the little ones. This year, the animal petting zoo was an absolute hit. There was also flash tattooing, stilt walkers, games and plenty more activities for the whole family.
Catalina Estate was the perfect spot for the Telethon home this year. Just 30-minutes North of Perth, the block is nestled between established communities, as well as Burns Beach and stunning bush land. Head here for a video tour of the 2015 Catalina Telethon Home.
Sunday’s success was only possible thanks to the amazing support of the WA community. We’d also like to extend our sincere thanks to the businesses and individuals who contributed to the day. We cannot name them all, but here is a start.
