South Waikato News - - SPORT -

On Fe­bru­ary 3, the South Waikato Coun­try Mu­sic Club con­verged on The Plaza to once again host their an­nual free con­cert fundraiser.

A line-up of 20 singers from the club kept an au­di­ence of 235 peo­ple well en­ter­tained.

The event raised $1160. En­try was free with af­ter­noon tea pro­vided.

All funds raised were do­nated to the Pu­taruru Vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gade.

Club pres­i­dent Les Whyte was very proud of the job his club and their back­ing band achieved.

‘‘It was a bril­liant day, our singers and band were great, our spon­sors for our raf­fles were great and our com­mit­tee and those in­volved be­hind the scenes, like our won­der­ful ladies who served af­ter­noon tea and our sound man are all to be highly com­mended in be­ing in­stru­men­tal in putting to­gether yet an­other great fundraiser for our hard work­ing ser­vices in our com­mu­nity.’’

The club’s next big event will be its 40th birth­day bash, also at The Plaza over the week­end of March 22 and 23.
