About: Our Fundraiser for 'Community House Whanganui'

Community House Whanganui are holding their first ever Charity Ball and Auction on Saint Patrick’s Day, Friday 17th March. They have a great night planned... dinner (including dessert and catered by Essence Catering) and drinks (beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, tea and coffee) are included in your ticket price.

There will also be a cash Guinness and spirit bar. They will have a live auction on the night (in addition to the online auction), prizes for best dressed and spot prizes to give away, and the band Hobnail (formerly Hobnail Boots) will be playing a selection of covers and Irish music to dance the night away to. They have a few other surprises in store too..

Their team have been working hard looking for sponsors and volunteers for this event. If you or your organisation are interested in sponsoring, making a donation, or volunteering in a practical way then please email info@communityball.co.nz. By way of thanks, all supporting businesses and organisations will have many opportunities for exposure on their website, Facebook page, and at the event itself.
