Last week, Real estate group Harcourts Western Australia raised $17,470 for charity through auction of signed sporting memorabilia and several other donated items. As the event was the first Telethon Adventurer’s fundraiser for the Telethon year, Channel Seven owner Kerry stokes doubled this amount to $34,940.
“At the last minute, Kerry Stokes said he would match us dollar for dollar. So we asked the crowd to donate anything extra they could so we could make an even bigger donation to the Telethon Adventurers through the Harcourts Foundation,” said Leigh Moore, Managing Director of Harcourts Blue in Kardinya.
“As a parent, I couldn’t imagine being told that my children have cancer. Around 100 children are being diagnosed with cancer every year in Western Australia, and so the Telethon Adventurers are making a concerted effort to raise funds to find the cause and cures for these childhood cancers,” Mr Moore continued.
