Bowater Toyota has stepped up to help local charity "Walk With Us" in their next major fundraising venture, a Charity Auction Night on Thursday 28th September.
There are still a handfull of tickets available for the event at the Waimea Old Boys Clubrooms, 20 Gladstone Rd in Richmond from 6:30pm.
There are some great prizes up for grabs, including a month's free "new Car Experience" from Bowater Toyota, a Sydney Holiday Package, 7 day Campervan Hire and many more. Scroll down to see the full list.
'Walk with Us’ was established by a group of Nelson/Tasman women who wanted to contribute something positive to the community in a targeted and specific way. Following discussions with local school and teachers, and researching similar organisations in New Zealand, the group decided that providing school and sports footwear fitted well with their goals and aspirations as well as community need. Their mission is to provide free school & sports footwear to children in need aged between 5 and 13 years of age in the Nelson/Tasman Regions.
The Charity Auction on Thursday 28th September is slated to be a fantastic night. Doug Avery is a very interesting man, with a story that is vital to be told in our community, especially significant right now in light of our country's terrible statistics when it comes to depression and suicide in the farming sector in particular.
The event is on track to be a sell out, with tickets only costing $20 a head, including nibbles.
Some of the other prizes on offer include:
- Sydney Holiday Package - 4 night's accommodation and $2500 towards flights and rental car
- Discover New Zealand 7 Day 4 berth Camperband Hire
- A luxury Abel Tasman boating day trip on board the Transition for up to 20 persons. Plus Canapes.
- CLM Health & Fitness at Richmond Aquatic Centre 12 month Gym Membership
