Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust is pleased to announce that following an inspirational address by the Rt Hon. Helen Clark, introduced by Chris Carter, the Auction made a record $43,000!
This achievement was made possible thanks to the generosity of our key Sponsors KPMG, Southern Cross Healthcare, AUT and Grey Lynn Tyreworx; the many donors large and small; the amazing on stage duo, Auctioneer Michelle Maitland and MC Michele A’Court; and to the 280 plus guests attending who dug deep bidding for items helping raise the needed funds to support the Trust.
The top three items were:
- The Havannah Luxury Resort, Vanuatu, 5 Days and return Airfares on Air Vanuatu
- We Can Do It! express magazine Cover with Helen Clark Artwork
- Turtle Cove Gay Resort, Northern Queensland, 5 nights accommodation
Tertiary Scholarships Announced
As a direct result of the outcome of the auction, the Trust is pleased to announce that it is now opening the 2019 Scholarships and will offer a total of four $3,000 scholarships – two in partnership with AUT and two general scholarships. Information and applications are available here.
