Grays is hosting a Mega Christmas online auction event to raise much-needed funds for Camp Quality, a leading Australian charity that helps kids facing cancer.
This is the fourth auction event Grays has held for Camp Quality and the second this year, thanks to generous donations from local companies and sellers. The auction, to be held November 21-28, is aiming to raise $50,000, with 100% of auction proceeds going to Camp Quality to help kids and their families.
In Australia, there are nearly 9,000 children dealing with their own cancer diagnosis each year and a further 16,000 coping with the diagnosis of a parent or primary carer. $50,000 makes a huge difference in the lives of these kids and their families.
For example, it will allow 120 people to attend a Camp Quality Family Camp, which gives children and their families a break from cancer, where they can reconnect, meet others in a similar situation and make happy memories that change their cancer story.
Bidders will not only be helping raise funds for kids and families to have a break from the trauma of cancer, but they will also be able to pick up a bargain on a range of fantastic products including wine, sports memorabilia, children’s toys and a Sydney Tower dinner experience.
Deborah Thomas, Camp Quality CEO said: “A big thanks to Grays for hosting this auction and helping us be there for kids and their families at every step of the cancer journey. We are also so grateful to the generous supporters who have donated all these great products for the auction, which allows ongoing support to families when they need it most.”
Ankit Sachdeva, Home & Consumer BDM at Grays said: “We’re big supporters of the fantastic people at Camp Quality and the work they do to help kids and their families get through the enormous emotional and mental toll of dealing with cancer.
“Their programs such as the Family Camp provide positive experiences for many people, and it’s great to see these kids smiling even when they are facing a tough road ahead. On the back of this auction, we hope to see plenty of families get the chance to take a small break from dealing with cancer.”
