Din­ers make a dif­fer­ence

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Needy chil­dren and fam­i­lies have re­ceived a boost from a restau­rant char­ity.

Last year’s DineAid cam­paign ran dur­ing Novem­ber and De­cem­ber, where pa­trons at a se­lec­tion of restau­rants around the coun­try were asked to add $2 to their bill. The $55,142 raised went to sev­eral char­i­ties. The Auck­land, Welling­ton and Christchurch city mis­sions and the Foun­da­tion for Youth De­vel­op­ment each re­ceived $20,000, Kidz First was given $10,000 and Cure Kids $5142.

Or­gan­iser and chef Mark Gre­gory says the amount is a pos­i­tive sign for the char­ity’s fu­ture and he ex­pects to build on it in com­ing years.
