Great night – hope you all enjoyed it. Thanks to every one of you who gave, volunteered, rescued, cooked, created music, MC-ed and came with your families on the night. The fab Hawke’s Bay weather didn’t fail us for the 12th year and lastly Public Dreams Trust team – WOW, AMAZING FIREWORKS yet again. They just get better each year.
You may be aware that we actively try to make it a true community event and this year Arthur Miller and Taradale Primary schools sold tickets on our behalf so will also benefit from 60% of their sales, which you have enabled. Our monies raised will be used towards the provision of a shade area,. We will update you with the final tally as soon as we know.
Any feedback is always welcome, with things that worked well to repeat and ideas for the next one, all of which go into the debrief meeting which is the first piece of paper pulled out next year.
Thanks again to our wonderful parents who volunteered for pre sales and on the night – the event does not run without each and every one of you, YOU ARE AWESOME. Additional thanks to Kate who organised the face painters, Steph the finance and finally the tidy up team – with special shout to Nick Reed who packed the last the last fence away at half eleven!
Lastly our fab sponsors StockCo, Tumu ITM Havelock North, The Hits 89.5, Dish Catering, Emmerson Transport, Rockit Global Ltd, Hillmac Electrical, Sight & Sound Services Ltd and Bay Plaza Pharmacy. Please support them anyway you can.
From the committee of Phil, Natascha, Fiona, Kerin, Terry, Cortnie, Maggie and Mo
