It’s Malaghan Month at Just Paterson!

1 October 2012

This month Just Paterson is celebrating three years of working with us.

Since 2009, when Just Paterson lost their amazing company co-founder, wife and mother; Sally Paterson; to glioblastoma multiforme, a form of brain cancer – they’ve been raising funds for our research into a vaccine for the disease. So far, they’ve raised over $190,000 and they’re hoping to raise a whole lot more.

During October they’ll be donating $1000 to the Institute from every property sold. They’ll also be running a fun online auction every Tuesday on their Facebook page www.facebook.com/justpaterson, and throughout the month they’re putting the challenge out to other Wellington businesses to donate $100 to the Malaghan Institute and they’ll match it!

As part of their Malaghan Month activity they’re also supporting the Just Paterson Five Painters exhibition – on at the Academy of Fine Arts Academy Galleries on Queens Wharf from 25-29 October. In exchange these five amazing artists are supporting Just Paterson by each donating a painting to be auctioned for the Malaghan Institute.

As a valued Malaghan supporter we’d love you to join in their Malaghan Month activity by logging on and liking them at www.facebook.com/justpaterson and stay up to date with us at www.facebook.com/MalaghanInstitute.
