The Fundraising Evening in Queenstown, NZ went off with a bang! We raised $3135.81 NZD with the help of the very generous bunch below. With the funds raised online this takes us to a total of $4563.21 NZD


Some of the generous bunch from Queenstown!

A very special thanks must go to the biggest spender, Gabriel Schorderet (the one in the middle with the blue t shirt who looks like Harry Potter) who spent $825!

More special thanks must go to Lucy & Amelia from NO. 5 Church Lane for the venue and great staff, Mark from Broken Shed Vodka for the cocktails, Henry Youngman for the hilarious hosting, Tim Reid from Tom Tom Productions for the audio/visual gear and Kelly McGarry for being massive, blonde and awesome. Also a big thanks to all the businesses below for donating awesome prizes!
