BRISBANE, QLD – September 4, 2020
Homely.com.au, the real estate portal helping millions of Australians find the perfect home, has sponsored Harcourts Property Centre’s Hairgust fundraiser, by donating $3000 towards pancreatic and bowel cancer research.
Harcourts Property Centre Co-Directors Aaron Brooks and Sam Devlin ‘dared to hair’ by donning wigs during August to raise awareness and funds for Bowel Cancer Australia and the Pancare Foundation.
Aaron says, “both Sam and I have had personal experiences with cancer, and we’re so thankful for Homely’s support to a great cause that is so dear to us and close to our team’s hearts”.
“We figured with heads like ours (both Sam and Aaron are bald) we can’t do shave for a cure, so we flipped the script and created Hairgust where we’d get sponsored to wear professionally fitted toupees for a month.”
“I reckon it’s the best we’ve looked since our twenties and as a bonus, all the money raised goes to two charities that do such amazing work”, Sam says.
The Hairgust event also involved brave members of the Harcourts Property Centre shaving their hair and culminated in a luncheon on Friday, August 28 with a charity auction, raffles and inspiring guest speakers from Pancare and Bowel Cancer Australia.
“We initially had a goal of $10,000 in mind, but we’ve been absolutely blown away by everyone’s generosity and ended up exceeding our goal raising $13,700 in total—an outstanding effort,” Sam shares.
Erin Hosier, Homely Senior Partnership Manager, says “Homely was so proud to attend and sponsor the Hairgust event raising money for such a worthy cause”.
“The impressive $13,700 raised is a credit to Sam, Aaron and all the Harcourt Property Centre team’s hard work and inspiring efforts throughout August to raise awareness and funds for bowel and pancreatic cancer research,” Erin says.
Aaron Moseley, Homely Senior Partnership Manager, says “like Sam and Aaron, the Homely family has been touched by cancer. We’re so grateful to Harcourts Property Centre for running this event and giving us the opportunity to help fund research towards finding a cure for this terrible disease”.
