After much anticipation, on Tuesday June 3 we gathered at 183 Auburn Springs Blvd SE for the showhome auction. This is the first time Cedarglen Homes has auctioned off a home and with the full value of the sale being donated to Wellspring Calgary, we had a healthy mix of excitement and nerves before the start of the auction. When the auctioneer quickly went through the numbers, we just tried to keep up, until we heard the official “sold”! We are thrilled to say that the home sold for $551,000!
From the beginning to the end, this has been an exciting experience for Cedarglen Homes. It started with the construction of the home. Without hesitation our co-workers, trades and suppliers all stepped up wanting to help this incredible organization. After the home was built, we were touched to see individuals affected by cancer turn to the showhome for support. Finally, this brings us to the home auction which turned out to be the perfect ending to this adventure. We are incredibly happy for the family who will be calling 183 Auburn Springs Blvd home. Having been personally affected by cancer, they related to Wellspring’s cause and even plan on doing some volunteer work with the organization afterwards. We can’t wait to hand them over the keys and wish them plenty of happy memories in this special home.
These funds will truly make a difference for Wellspring Calgary and will help fund their organization for years to come. Through this showhome they’ve been able to raise awareness of their organization and reach out to South Calgary. With such a positive response from the community, Wellspring Calgary has decided to continue providing programs in south Calgary at other venues.

Enjoy the weekend,
