well done natalie!

a few weeks ago we sent you all word of the “haiti fundraiser dinner and auction” our friend natalie was organising and held in wanaka on the 17th of february – many of you came along on the night or sent donations even if you couldn’t be at the dinner and we, along with natalie, would like to thank you warmly for this. it’s thanks to the support of everyone who cares that events like this are such a success, so pat yourself on the back!

and what a success the evening was! because we know you’ll want to hear, we’ll let you know just how fantastic a fundraiser it was: natalie’s dinner and auction raised a grand total of $5000 along with a further $2000 raised by a mt aspiring college mufti day … all $7000 of which went to the new zealand red cross relief effort in haiti.
the people at red cross were so impressed with natalie’s effort that they’ve asked her to work on their fundraising committee in dunedin. we’re not surprised at all. we’d like to congratulate natalie and thank her for showing us all that (yes, it sounds corny but you have to admit it’s true) just one person can make a big difference.
