The very impressive Premier House was the setting for a recent fundraising event organised by the Wellington Friends of the Malaghan Institute.
Over 150 people gathered at the beautiful premises in Wellington on the evening of June 9 for a winter cocktail party. Sean Plunkett was MC for the evening and guests had the opportunity to mix and mingle while listening to pianist Jennifer Timmings and enjoying quality food and wine.
The night was a huge success with over $7,000 raised for the Institute. We would like to acknowledge the efforts of our volunteer committee, the Wellington Friends of the Malaghan Institute, in organising such a successful event to raise both awareness of and funds for the Malaghan Institute. A special thank you also to all the generous sponsors: Spy Valley Wines, Zibibbo Restaurant & Bar, Lion Nathan, SHOTT Beverages, Marianne Muggeridge and Inspire Photography.
