In 2018 and 2019, the ‘Home For A Cure’ campaign saw Jim Hatzimoisis, Director at Barry Plant Taylors Lakes auction off house and land packages in Satterley’s Botanical estate, with these packages raising over $1.3 million for the My Room charity.
This year, Jim will auction a completed and fully-furnished home located in the heart of Satterley’s Arcadia estate in Officer in Melbourne’s south-east. The residence, which has been built by Simonds Homes, will go under the hammer on Channel 9’s My Room Telethon in October.
“We are so excited to be involved in the ‘Home for a Cure’ charity again, and to be auctioning off a beautiful Simonds residence in one of Satterley’s premier estates is doubly exciting,” Jim said. “My Room is such an amazing charity doing really important work helping children and their families in the battle against cancer. It is just such a privilege to help them any way we can.”
The four bedroom, two bathroom single level ‘Aspire 174’ residence on a 465 sqm (approx.) block will also come with approx. $150,000 of builder upgrades thanks to generous suppliers. Adriatic Furniture have donated a $40,000 furniture package, while $25,000 of electronics and home appliances have been donated by JB Hi-Fi. $20,000 worth of additional homewares have also been donated by AH Beard, Bunnings Warehouse, Salt & Pepper, and Harvey Norman. The Age and Stan have also donated 12 month subscriptions.
“This is a stunning family home with generous proportions, luxury upgrades, and brilliant alfresco highlights that will be perfect for summer entertaining,” said Jim Hatzimoisis. “The location in the master-planned Arcadia will also be appreciated by families, with the estate offering an abundance of beautiful parklands and playgrounds as well as convenience to terrific shopping and schools.”
Founded in 1992, My Room is a volunteer-led organisation that is committed to supporting young cancer patients and families through their treatment journey. The money raised from this auction will go to supporting the four major pillars of the organisation: family support, medical equipment, clinical care, and research and clinical trials. My Room’s goal is to achieve a 100% cure rate for childhood cancers.
Subject to confirmation, the Channel 9 My Room telethon will be held in October, with Jim Hatzimoisis conducting an online auction of the property at 42 Gulliver Drive Officer. Last year, the Channel 9 My Room telethon raised $1,253,956.
