A major part of Professionals commitment to the community is our ongoing sponsorship of the Child Cancer Foundation - a non profit support network for children with cancer and their families.
When a child with cancer is hospitalised, the Foundation assists by helping the entire family stay with and support the child. The Foundation does this by ensuring that the families have a place to stay, transport, personal time and financial assistance. To encourage the spread of information in the fight against cancer, the Foundation sponsors visits by overseas specialists and also supports research into the causes of childhood cancer.
The Foundation receives no government funding and therefore relies heavily on sponsorship and the goodness of the public.
Professionals is a Gold Star Sponsor of the Child Cancer Foundation. Since 1994 we have helped them continue their invaluable work by contributing over $4.6 million in donations and project funding.
As well as gifting a percentage from each property sale, our offices around the country host numerous fundraising events throughout the year. These funds have helped establish two Family Places in Auckland and Wellington, holiday homes in Taupo and Queenstown and have contributed to the purchase of a national centre in Auckland.
The Professionals Real Estate Group is proud to be supporting the Child Cancer Foundation’s 2016 sibling and family camps.
“Professionals has been a fundraising partner for Child Cancer Foundation for over 23 years, raising in excess of $4.6million to date. To be associated with the Foundation’s camps is a privilege,” says Professionals Real Estate Group’s CEO Mike Henderson.
“These camps are a very important part of the practical support provided to both families and siblings of children with cancer by the Child Cancer Foundation. Supporting the camps provides a very tangible focus for our people to raise funds for such a worthy cause.”
