Fantastic Fundraising from our Taupo Friends

19 September 2011

The past three months have been very busy for our Taupo Friends group, with two successful fundraising events being held.

The first, a Bridge Tournament, was held in June and saw over 80 people attend the evening.  A great time was had by all and the committee raised over $2000 for the Institute's research programmes.

Following on from that sucess, the Taupo Friends then held a Fashion Show in late August.  This event was hosted by Jennifer Mayer - owner of 'Pear Tree Fashions' and 'Flirts', two local Taupo clothing boutiques.  This event was very well received with over 100 people, all ladies, attending the event.  Ticket sales generated another amazing donation to the Institute of $2450.

On behalf of the scientists here at the Malaghan Institute, we would like to thank the hardworking committee for their efforts and committment to our cause.
