Fast and Furious Bidding at Prime Minister’s Lunch
Signed political memorabilia was in hot demand at the annual Prime Minister’s Luncheon and charity auction organised by the Henderson Rotary Club.
Two posters, signed by Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Jacinda Ardern and former leader, the Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, proved popular amongst the 170 guests with the first poster reaching $1600 and the second, identical poster fetching even more at $1900.
The charity auction, held last Friday (Oct 19, 2018) at the Quality Hotel Lincoln Green featured 13 items, raised over $17,000.
Funds from the event will support Rotary’s RYDA programme (to promote road safety education for Year 12 students) and the Well Foundation towards the rebuild of the Special Care Baby Unit at Waitakere Hospital.
Thank you to our attendees for your generous bids!!
This year’s event was supported with sponsorship from Ryman Healthcare and The Trusts, to enhance proceeds back to the two local charitable causes.
