CHAR­ITY Make-A-Wish Aus­tralia has 100,000 rea­sons to be feel­ing grate­ful.

Gold Coast time­share op­er­a­tor Ul­tiqa Ho­tels & Re­sorts has an­nounced a two-year part­ner­ship with the or­gan­i­sa­tion, which is ex­pected to gen­er­ate $100,000 in do­na­tions over the pe­riod.

Ul­tiqa CEO Mark Henry said the com­pany is proud to part­ner with Make-A-Wish.

“As a fam­ily owned and op­er­ated busi­ness, we are so proud to be sup­port­ing the in­cred­i­ble ef­forts of Make-AWish as they pro­vide hope and strength to chil­dren fight­ing crit­i­cal ill­ness, and fam­i­lies, all across Aus­tralia by mak­ing life-chang­ing wishes come true,” he said.

Ul­tiqa will raise funds for Make-A-Wish through its web­site, where cus­tomers can opt-in to

do­nate with each ac­com­mo­da­tion book­ing.

In ad­di­tion, Ul­tiqa Life­style will do­nate $50 from each new mem­ber­ship and $5 from each hol­i­day tour con­ducted at any of Ul­tiqa’s prop­er­ties, lo­cated in Broad­beach, Brisbane, Caloun­dra and Melbourne.

Make-A-Wish CEO Sally Bate­man said it is de­lighted with the new part­ner­ship.

Ul­tiqa was es­tab­lished in 2014 as a joint ven­ture be­tween the South African Beek­man Group and Mr Henry.
