Lions Char­ity Din­ner

Waihi Leader - - News - St John Waihi Chair, Kris Pur­den on 027 722 5555

The Waihi Lions Club had us “All Shook Up” with their out­stand­ing Char­ity Din­ner. The event took place on Satur­day 29 Septem­ber, with pro­ceeds gen­er­ously be­ing do­nated to the St John Build­ing Fund. The team­work that went on be­hind the scenes was ex­cep­tional, months of plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion re­sulted in a fan­tas­tic night for those who were able to at­tend. Held at the Waihi Beach Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, teams of vol­un­teers worked to­gether to de­liver the food, bev­er­ages and pro­vide the ser­vice, they also trans­formed the venue to be fit for the King (of Rock’ n’ Roll). Elvis’ great­est hits filled the dance floor and pro­vided ad­di­tional en­ter­tain­ment through­out the night along­side the jam-packed programme. Auc­tion and raf­fle prizes won on the night in­cluded First Aid Kits, Fishing Trips and Lions Hours – to get those odd jobs done! We are very for­tu­nate in Waihi to have busi­nesses, or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als who con­trib­ute so gen­er­ously to St John. “A Big Hunk of Love” and thanks, to all those that helped make this event so suc­cess­ful.
