It has been a while since I have done a full-scale post for the web site, so here goes. We have been toiling away in the background with a lot of help putting things together and we saw a lot of you last Saturday for our Halloween night which was great fun. We really appreciated all the support we got there and a big thanks to Leanne, The wrightxperience, The Top Pub and all our spot prize Sponsors. We have a radio ad playing at the moment on the Mediaworks stations thanks to Ondy Herrick for donating some of her advertising time which was incredibly generous and is giving us some good exposure. We have a few events now coming up for our Wellington Crowds as below!
Cinema Fundraiser – Nov 17th
‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’
Where: Light House Cinema, When: Nov 17th 5pm
J.K. Rowling invites you to a pre-screening of the new era of the wizarding world starring Eddie Redmayne. The adventures of writer Newt Scamander (Redmayne) in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. This will be an awesome premier night in Wellington at the Light House Cinema in Wigan Street. Tickets are only $20 so why not head out and watch a great movie while supporting an amazing cause. A huge thanks to My Brother and Sister-in-law Tim and Ange for setting that all up
Hotel Bristol Cut-A-Thon
When: 25th November, 8:30pm Onwards
Where, Hotel Bristol Cuba Street Wellington
We are doing a Cut-A-thon on the 25th November from 8:30pm fundraising for HSCT in Singapore. Ghazy and a few others from Jovani Mens Hair Stylist have volunteered their time for free, and cut throughout the night. All we ask is that you donated what you think is a fair price for a cut. All money from cuts go straight to Nick Perkins.
Make a night of it with us. There will be drinks to purchase, and some complimentary finger food to nibble on. Plus we will have a few raffles on offer throughout the night!
The person who donates the most will be given a $100 food and beverage voucher from Hotel Bristol.
So let your hair and beards grow over the next few weeks and get them sorted out during this night! Or come in for a touch up.
We are looking for some Ladies Hair-Dressers that might be interested in donating some time for us as well so we can do ladies cuts on the night as well, if you know anyone who might be interested get them in touch with me and we’ll sort it.
When: 4th December, 10am – 3pm
Where: The main Fair entrances are at either end of Tinakori Rd, or just up from Parliament on Hill St
We have a stall at the Thorndon Fair which is looking to be a huge day out. Anyone who has any craft type items they might be able to donate for our stall we’d be endlessly grateful. We can’t sell food at this one sadly but have some nice stuff and would like to add some more.
I’ll do some more updates over the next few days about various other events going on including some more Wairarapa events. We are looking at doing another auction night coming up, so need to start finding Guest Speakers early, anyone who might know someone who’d be great at it we’d love to hear from you. That’s all for now but I’ll be back with more in due course
