Fundraiser for wildlife

By amie.hickland@age.co.nz, Amie Hickland


The second annual Twilight at Pukaha Mount Bruce fundraiser will be held next month and organisers say it is one you won't want to miss.

The night will include dinner, entertainment and an auction, and many goods have already been donated.

"The auction is a key part of the fundraising, with all items donated and all proceeds going directly towards the forest wildlife restoration fund - this is essentially the fund that keeps pests at bay and therefore wildlife safe," said Pukaha Mount Bruce Board chairman Bob Francis. "Many people don't realise the entire Pukaha operation is not for profit - all funds go towards protecting the wildlife at Pukaha and maintaining the operation itself."

He said the dinner is a great night out and an opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to the environment.

"It's a wonderful evening and a wonderful way to support the wildlife at Pukaha Mount Bruce; definitely one you don't want to miss," he said.

Prizes include accommodation at the Copthorne Hotel & Resort Solway Park, a weekend away in Hawke's Bay from TRC Toyota, duvets from Terra Lana and framed photography by Geoff Walker.

All funds raised go towards the forest wildlife restoration project.

The fundraising dinner at Pukaha Mount Bruce on March 22 is expected to sell out. Tickets are $95 each or $900 for a table of 10. Call Jo Parker on (06) 377 0535 or John Gilberthorpe on (06) 304 9698 for tickets or to donate items to auction.
