Car added to ‘Build for a Cure’ initiative
For the third consecutive year, Auto Advantage has joined forces with McDonald Jones Homes as part of the ‘Build for a Cure’ initiative to support the Children’s Cancer Institute.
In 2016 and 2017, Auto Advantage and Mitsubishi Australia donated a new vehicle as the major raffle prize as part of the ‘Build for a Cure’ initiative. This year, Auto Advantage and Mitsubishi Australia through local dealer Kloster Mitsubishi, have continued supporting the cause by donating another new car.
Auto Advantage General Manager, Simon Duwner, said that it was a great honour to be part of this project.
“Auto Advantage has a long working relationship with the McDonald Jones Homes and when Bill McDonald asked Auto Advantage three years ago to assist, we were only too happy to work with Mitsubishi Australia to donate a car,” Simon said.
The car is the major prize in a raffle that is part of the Build for a Cure fundraiser. Tickets will be $50 each with 500 tickets available for purchase.
The ‘Build for a Cure’ initiative was created by Children’s Institute, McDonald Jones Homes, and Walker Corporation to mark International Childhood Cancer Awareness month each year and supports vital research.
This year McDonald Jones Homes will build the house in just 21 days at The Bower estate at Medowie. The McCloy Group has donated a block of land. McDonald Joins Homes will build the house in just three weeks and it will be auctioned on 21 October. Work begins on the house at Medowie on 27 August and is expected to raise $700,000 at auction with an additional amount raised through the raffle.
