Central Leader - - News -

A char­ity auc­tion has raised more than $150,000 for the Raukatauri Mu­sic Cen­tre, which pro­vides mu­sic pro­grammes for spe­cial needs chil­dren.

Top items auc­tioned were a Mazda 2 cus­tomised by fash­ion de­sign­ers Stitch Min­istry, which fetched $20,000, and a pri­vate acous­tic per­for­mance by Bic Runga, which went for $18,000.

Among the evening’s per­form­ers were Hol­lie Smith and the Mt Roskill Pri­mary School choir, Hinewehi Mohi with Joel and Nathan Haines, Ele­meno P, Su­per­groove and Op­shop.

The trust needs to raise $400,000 each year to keep run­ning.
