Firstly a massive thank you to the 45 plus businesses that turned up to the launch of Cleave House shared offices, and the launch of the Santa Parade website -www.howicksantaparade.co.nz.
The evening was a huge success and we would like to thank these local businesses for coming forward already and becoming sponsors!
We have hit $3600 of sponsorship. Thank you Marie Raos from Ray White, Robert Green Bayleys, Tony from Poppies Bookstore, Gerald Helloworld, Ross Sly from Galbraiths with a gold sponsorship of $1000, and New World, also with a $1000 gold sponsorhip.
New World has also kindly offered on the 30th/31st to donate us the profits from the coffee sales on these two days. We are very grateful for the thoughtfulness and support.
We also are seeking products/vouchers as ANZ and other businesses are going to be holding hamper raffles for us. Also, we are having a quiz night on September 5. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book tickets at $25 each or a table of eight for $200.
All proceeds go towards the Howick Santa Parade.
We look forward to seeing you around the village!
