BUSINESS buddy presents Light for Life

Kirsten Hawke

Being in business should include an element of social enterprise, which means the work day involves more than clocking in and out, just to get the job done.

That’s why on Saturday July 27 BUSINESS buddy is joining the Light for Life party.

The cultural spectacular includes feasting, fun and a feel-good factor, with proceeds being donated to four significant charities.

We know you will want to be part of the show, seeing young talent from Aotearoa entertaining you with music and dance from the Asian-Pacific region – all for good causes.

“BUSINESS buddy has supported Totara Hospice for more than a decade and we didn’t hesitate to become involved with Light for Life,” says Kirsten.

“My family has personal experience with Hospice and really – hasn’t everybody experienced some contact with Hospice?”

How much will Light for Life raise?

The fundraising goal for Light for Life is $125,000, which will be distributed to the following four charities.

Totara Hospice – provides free multi-disciplinary, specialist holistic palliative care services to the districts of South and South East Auckland.

Cancer Society – provides support for people and whānau living with cancer and education to reduce the risk of cancer.

Ronald McDonald House – supports families when their child is in a hospital away from home.

Unicorn Foundation – dedicated to revolutionising the way that Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) are diagnosed and managed in New Zealand.

Who’s organising Light for Life?

Our new BUSINESS buddy director, Jatin Patel, is the driving force behind Light for Life.

He has organised the fundraising dinner in the past and to-date, Light for Life has raised more than $200,000.

What happens at Light for Life?

The doors at Mahatma Gandhi Centre in Eden Terrace open at 6pm on Saturday July 27.

Guests will be entertained by local cultural groups and treated to a culinary buffet feast.

Tickets cost $100 – all for a good cause and BUSINESS buddy would be stoked if Auckland businesses booked tables of 10 for $1000 (incl. GST).
