The seventh Plantation Homes House for Life reached a record high on Saturday 29 July, selling under the hammer for $692 500, with funds raised going to Mater Little Miracles.
More than 100 people gathered at the Springfield Lakes home to be part of the excitement and enjoy a family fun day.
There was strong interest in the luxury four-bedroom home, in particular from the Springfield community, with six bidders vying to own the home.
The winning bid came from a local resident whose young family were looking to upgrade.
Mater Foundation Executive Director of Fundraising, Lesley Ray, said the incredible result meant so much to Mater Little Miracles—supporting seriously ill and premature babies and their families treated at Mater.
“We are absolutely thrilled that the home went for close to $700 000, a record since our partnership with Plantation Homes began 11 years ago.
“The atmosphere was very intense as there was a lot of interest in the home. I’m so pleased for the family who will now reside at this stunning address.”
A total of more than $2.5 million has been raised from the seven Plantation Homes House for Life charity auctions.
The Plantation Homes House for Life was built thanks to the generosity of tradespeople and suppliers who volunteered their time and donated supplies.
Ms Ray thanked the team at Plantation Homes for their ongoing commitment to the project and Mater Little Miracles.
“Plantation Homes know just how important it is to raise funds for the 2000 seriously ill and premature babies who are treated at Mater each year.
“With every new House for the Life project, the team are more enthusiastic and rally tradespeople and suppliers to build a bigger and better home. We appreciate the support from Plantation Homes and we look forward to collaborating again in the future,” she said.
