Stadium fundraiser kicks it out the park again

All Blacks WinWhat a great job from the parents and senior Youth last weekend at the All Blacks vs Wallabies game doing one of our precious stadium fundraiser. ¬†Looks like there’s another $800 coming our way after a very hectic evening.

I understand we ran out of several lines of drinks – but there were still a few of those plastic hotdogs left…. ūüôĀ

Halfway to our rejuvenation fundraising goal!

After some sterling work by our Committee grants specialist (thanks Erina) we are the fortunate recipients of:

  1. $5,000 from Infinity Foundation for our basement projects
  2. $4,000 from Four Winds for our basement and kitchen projects.

This takes us to $39,000 out of our target $80,000 to do our total hall rejuvenation wish list. Awesome.

An update on the basement project will be up shortly (it’s been cleared and tidied and is now ready for work to begin).
