At Leisuretex Painting Contractors we love to get behind a good cause! We also love The Block. Ok that may not be all of us at Leisuretex, but it’s not just me… So when B105 (now Hit 105) announced they were going to build a cubby house to auction off with Michael and Carlene from The Block Glasshouse I jumped on the phone!
We donated the paint for the cubby house which was painted (in under an hour!) by the Gold Coast Block Heads at a Pop Up Show in Booval and auctioned off to raise money for Molly’s Fund for Dravet.
“Dravet syndrome, also known as Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy (SMEI), is a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy.” Michael and Carlene asked for the funds to be donated to Molly’s Fund for Dravet as they have friends who have been affected by this terrible condition.
The Cubby House was sold under the hammer for a whopping $4,500 to John Lazarou from The Coffee Club. A wonderful result, we are so happy we were able to contribute!
