The 2022 Good Friday Appeal Charity Home has sold for a record breaking $1,082,000!

This Good Friday, there were more than one million glorious reasons to celebrate.

$1,082,000 to be precise, as that was the jaw-dropping price fetched at this year’s Good Friday Appeal Charity Home no reserve auction.

More than 600 people flocked to Sunbury on Good Friday to be part one of the biggest events on the Good Friday Appeal calendar. In the lead up to the 2pm auction, there were activities aplenty to keep families entertained including live entertainment, face-painting, kids’ rides, Marvel Avengers Super Heroes, the Dulux Dog, sausage sizzle, coffee cart, food and ice cream trucks as well as a brand-new playground directly opposite the home.

It was a fast and furious action with auctioneer Paul Tzamalis weaving his magic to keep the bids moving.

With seven registered bidders in the mix, Sharlotte and Rami Ayoob of Mickleham secured the winning bid of $1,082,000 for Henley’s Vogue 34, the land donated by Villawood and all the furniture.

“We’d been looking for a year. It’s like being born again to be honest, something new and fresh,” said Rami. “We saw the GFA house and it grabbed us.”

“The home is really comfortable. It feels great knowing the money’s going to the Royal Children’s,” said Sharlotte.

2022 marks Henley’s 30th year of building and donating houses to the Good Friday Appeal and with that, Henley has donated more than $18 million in total to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal since 1993. Villawood have generously donated land for the 13th year in a row.

We look forward to the 2023 GFA Charity Home and will keep you posted on its next location!
