SOLD! Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision charity auction
SOLD! Director and Senior Auctioneer Eric Bartz conducted a spirited auction that began at a conservative $400,000 and smashed the crowd’s expectations with a hammer drop at a whopping $736,000. “When I was asked to be involved with Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision and the charity auction, I didn’t hesitate to put my hand up knowing that it was all for such a fantastic cause and to raise more awareness for finding a cure for bone marrow failure syndromes.”
Point Cook was filled with competitive bidding, high stakes and good feelings all around for a stellar cause. hockingstuart Werribee and hockingstuart Point Cook was proud to support and play a big role in this year’s No Reserve Charity & Land Auction for Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision - a charity founded by former St Kilda Football Club star captain Nick Riewoldt and brother Alex after they lost their sister Maddie to a battle with the rare disease Aplastic Anaemia in 2015 at the young age of 26.
Proceeds from the four-bedroom fully-furnished house and land package in Satterley’s Upper Point Cook Estate generously donated by Fairhaven Homes and built by an army of tradesmen and suppliers will go towards research into Bone Marrow failure on behalf of Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision.
The afternoon was abuzz with excitement surrounding the AFL legend who hosted some free kids’ footy clinics on the day, a coffee and food truck fueling the crowd and a celebration for local residents, the Mijares family, who came away with the winning bid towards a tremendous cause. Director Eric Bartz happily stated, “The day was a big success and it was great to see so many people come along to support the event.”
