Auction to raise funds for cause
A behind the scenes Shortland Street tour is up for grabs to help raise money for the sexual abuse support service HELP.
The financially stretched service is holding its annual Colour Me Purple charity auction on March 20.
Other prizes for guests to bid on include a beauty makeover package including a styling session with Lorraine Downs and a radio morning experience with The Edge hosts.
Jazz band YFO, including former Auckland Grammar School students, will join cel- ebrity entertainers guests entertained.
HELP was formed 32 years ago as the Auckland Sexual Abuse HELP Foundation after doctors and police identified a need for specialised support for survivors of sexual abuse and assault.
It offers support for women and children, a 24 hour crisis service and a pre-school prevention programme.
The auction is from 6.30pm at the KPMG Corporate Boardroom, 18 Viaduct Harbour Ave. Tickets are limited to 150 and cost $60.
