Brand breaks fundraising record for Make-A-Wish foundation

A network took its annual fundraiser online and netted its biggest result ever in support of its longstanding charity partner.

While many have been lamenting that live events have transferred online over the past two years, stymieing the usual results, RE/MAX had the opposite experience with its annual charity auction.

Held online over the course of the network’s two-day conference and annual gala, the fundraiser brought in $30,365.

Openn Negotiation helped facilitate the online auction, which included items like personalised number plates, hot air balloon rides, a realestate.com.au marketing package, and a golf buggy.

The brand donated all proceeds to the Make-A-Wish foundation, which provides life-changing experiences for children who face critical illnesses.

RE/MAX Australia operations director Josh Davoren praised the network’s members for digging deep for the worthy cause.

“With the generosity of our members, we’re able to help make the wishes of children facing extremely challenging times come true,” Mr Davoren said.

Over the course of the fundraiser, $23,000 was raised to help Amelia, a young girl with chronic lung disease, a hole in her heart and pulmonary hypertension. 

The money raised by RE/MAX will facilitate her wish of meeting Mickey Mouse.

RE/MAX Australia has been donating to Make-A-Wish since 2012, with RE/MAX offices individually and collectively also working throughout the year toward raising an annual goal for the charity.
