Campaign launch: Make Kez’s Hideaway a reality

Thursday, March 12, 2015

For immediate release

The OTIS Foundation in partnership with Paul Gray Builders is now seeking community support to bring the Kez’s Hideaway vision to reality, with the launch of a new campaign to furnish the retreat.


Kez’s Hideaway is an amazing homestead being built for the OTIS Foundation by Paul Gray, from Paul Gray Builders, in memory of Kerri Gray (or Kez as she was known) as a haven for women living with breast cancer and their families. 
Paul may have never imagined he would become a key partner for the Otis Foundation, but felt that it was a way he could give back after Kerri passed, “Building Kez’s Hideaway has been given me something to focus on and it’s been a really positive outlet for our family”. Mr Gray said. 


Marketing and Communications Manager for the OTIS Foundation, Carlie Ryan said that local trades and services have been incredibly generous in offsetting some of the construction costs, but that there still the fit out of the house to complete, “We’re now at the pointy end of the build, so much hard work has gone in to get to here and it’s time look at how we will furnish this amazing homestead” Mrs Ryan said.


“We are calling on the generosity of the Bendigo community to help in whatever way they can. We’ve set up what we are calling a ‘virtual build register’ via our website where people can contribute to the purchase of household items to any value that they can afford. As you would understand we need everything from furniture to linen and kitchen goods, all the money contributed will go towards purchase items that reflect Kez’s style. There are quite a few items for under $15 so really anyone can help.” commented Mrs Ryan.


The campaign will kick off this Sunday with a series of television commercials encouraging people to help the fit out. “We are so thankful for the assistance of Andrew Pascoe from AP Productions here is Bendigo and OTIS’s team of media partners at the Bendigo Advertiser at Southern Cross Austereo for enabling us to undertake this campaign, it’s a true testament to how generous Bendigo is.” Mrs Ryan said.
