The 2018 New Level Telethon Home at The Hales in Forrestfield raised more than $700,000 for the charity when sold at auction last month.
A crowd of more than 650 flocked to The Hales on auction day to see the home sold for $730,000 to successful bidder Dr Aji. The stunning two-storey build was donated by New Level Homes, part of the In-Vogue family and owned by JWH Group, with Satterley and The Hales estate donating part proceeds from the 450sqm block.
Auctioneer and RE/MAX WA Managing Director Geoff Baldwin said the day proved a huge success.
“It was great to see such a large crowd come out to show their support for a great cause, with many registered bidders on the day all trying to secure the home,” he said.
The community proved a winner on auction day too, with food trucks, community stalls, a live DJ and plenty of activities for the kids, including native animal petting, arts and crafts and face painting. There was even a special appearance by Fat Cat.
JWH Group Managing Director Julian Walter said it was a great result for a worthy cause.
“Adding $730,000 to Telethon’s record-breaking fundraising total is a great result for the kids,” he said.
This year’s New Level Telethon Home broke some new ground – it was the first to be built in Perth’s foothills and, while In-Vogue has constructed the past 12 metropolitan Telethon Homes, the baton was passed for the first time to family member New Level this year.
“Building the Telethon Home is a project we are incredibly passionate about,” Mr Walter said.
“With the support of our staff, trades and long-term suppliers, New Level, In-Vogue and the JWH Group have raised well over $13.9 million for Telethon.”
The home’s tranquil surrounds in The Hales estate are designed with contemporary liveability in mind. The Hales will feature quality public open spaces, with all houses centred around a substantial strip of parkland.
The leafy estate is landscaped to retain the natural feature of the site and built around native marri and jarrah trees and the trickling waters of Crumpet Creek.
“It has been a fantastic result to raise much-needed funds for telethon, and we gladly welcome Dr Aji to one of our newest estates at The Hales,” Satterley CEO Nigel Satterley said.
“We look forward to partnering with Telethon and New Level Homes again next year to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help improve the lives of children and young people across Western Australia.”
