Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Gen­er­ous busi­nesses do­nated so many qual­ity prizes for a char­ity lunch in sup­port of Kidz First chil­dren’s hospi­tal that the or­gan­is­ers have com­bined them into a raf­fle.

The Mad Butcher and Sub­ur­ban News­pa­pers Com­mu­nity Trust lunch on De­cem­ber 12 at Eller­slie fea­tures Rob He­witt, the diver lost at sea for four days. Ta­bles of 10 are $1800 plus GST, sin­gle tick­ets are $180 plus GST.

A char­ity auc­tion is also al­ways held but or­gan­is­ers say not every­one can af­ford to bid or at­tend the lunch so prizes have been gath­ered to­gether into a $10 a ticket raf­fle. Pro­ceeds go to Kidz First.

“If we can sell 3000 tick­ets we can hand over an­other $30,000 to the hospi­tal,” trust mem­ber David Penny says. “We hope a lot of peo­ple who would sup­port the char­ity, but who can’t get to the din­ner, will buy a ticket.”

First prize is a 42inch Pana­sonic TV, and there are 20 other draws for prizes in­clud­ing moun­tain bikes and chil­dren’s cy­cles, a Great Bar­rier Is­land ad­ven­ture, Voda­fone War­riors sea­son tick­ets, $100 meat vouch­ers, a Fisher and Paykel A1GP fridge, laser hair re­moval pack­ages, a Re­gency Duty Free gift bas­ket and even the chance to fly a 747 flight sim­u­la­tor.
