Our Pledge for River’s Gift
We’re proud to announce that in 2020 we will once again build a charity home for River’s Gift. We look forward to working with Rivers Edge Winchelsea and Hayden Real Estate on this project.
Geelong Homes has undertaken a pledge to raise much-needed funds for Geelong-based Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) charity, River’s Gift. In February 2016, Geelong Homes constructed a contemporary four-bedroom home in Ocean Grove, featuring a generous master bedroom, open plan living, north facing alfresco area and fully landscaped gardens. The proceeds from the home auction raised over $130,000, with all profits being donated to River’s Gift to support the local charity and contribute to world-leading SIDS research.
The Pledge fundraising initiative was conceived when two old friends, Karl Waddell (Director – River’s Gift) and Andrew Carroll (GM – Geelong Homes) were reacquainted at the River’s Gift run group training session in Geelong. Karl and Andrew quickly realised that their organisation’s mutual passions for family and the Greater Geelong region, meant that a fundraising partnership could go a long way towards building a better future for our children.
We ask you to join us in raising SIDS awareness and much needed funds to help find a preventable cure.
