Project Taveuni Appeal Raises Over $5K
The response to the show has been amazing : Rabuka
The ‘Project Taveuni’ Winston Appeal Charity fashion show at the Tanoa Skylodge Hotel in Nadi last Saturday night was able to raise raised over $ 5000. The fabulous evening featured Fiji’s top designers Rosie Semisi, Mi- chael Mausio, Robert Kennedy and Ana Rabuka (Stylosophy) showcasing their glamour pieces for a worthy cause. Project Taveuni founder Ana Rabuka said, “With even a dollar we can help make a difference’ and for sure we will be able to put a smile on someone’s face whether it’s a child or an elderly.” She said there were thousands of children with their families who have lost everything from stationery, clothes, beddings, linens and many more. “The response has been amazing; people saw whatever we collected will go towards school stationery, extra building materials and also farming tools,” she said.
“This is one of the main reason of my fundraising with the hope that whatever we will be able to get, we will be able to brighten up smiles on these children’s faces.” The event was supported Radisson Blu Resort, Paradise Beverages, Manta Ray Island, Crusoe’s Retreat, Tanoa Hotel Group, Captain Cook Cruises, SPR, South Pacific Butchering Company, Bilo Café, Laxco, and Mix FM. “We are thankful to all those companies who have been so generous to come on board and contribute in forms of financial sponsorships to host the event,” Ms Rabuka said. Chief guest Member of Parlia- ment Samuela Vunivalu applauded the objective of Project Taveuni team in the assistance with the government to rebuild Fiji.
“This is an excellent strategy put in place to go with the Government plans in the rehabilitation process that were worst hit during February 20,” Mr Vunivalu said.
