Feel good forever about buying the house of your dreams
Melbourne's favourite charity event has got to be the Good Friday Appeal, for the Royal Children's Hospital, and the whole city gets behind it. Celebrities, companies, mums and dads and plenty of kids: what ever the event, there's always a lot of fun to be had, knowing that you are making a huge difference for a lot of very sick little children.

Go that extra mile this year, and get serious with your donation for a major feel good moment that will last the rest of your life: bid on the Good Friday Appeal House Auction - with no reserve, and plenty of celebrities (from Home and Away, and My Kitchen Rules), this annual event is sponsored big time by the generous folks at Henley and Villawood properties, as well as hundreds of other construction busiensses and trades - top effort!
This year's charity auction house is fittingly located at 83 Aspire Boulevard, Plumpton, 3335, in Melbourne's North West, not far from Caroline Springs, Hillside and Watergardens. The auction will be at 2pm on Good Friday (18th April). It is a brand new 50 square 'Emperor Nouveau Q1' house with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 5 different living zones. It's also within easy walking distance of landscaped parks and gardens. With no reserve, the house will definitely be sold at auction and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that 100% of the purchase price will be going to the Good Friday Appeal.
Good Friday Appeal Charity House Charity: Expect a Good Turn Out!
There will be loads of entertainment on the day, with television coverage by Channel 7 as part of the Good Friday telethon, loads of kid-friendly activities like face-painting and a CFA sausage sizzle. All that and the chance to walk away with your dream home. Totally worth it!
The charity home is open for inspection on Mondays from 4:30-6:30pm and Saturdays/Sundays from 12-2pm.
