Kiwi Gold Paralympic Sailing Fundraising Dinner

Kiwi Gold Sailing Paralympic Fundraising Dinner sponsored by Unlimited Potential

Kiwi Gold, NZ Para-Sailing Team held a wonderful fundraising event at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron on the 1st June.  Peter Montgomery MBE was Master of Ceremony for the evening, and entertained the guests with his wonderful anecdotes of Rick and the team.  Pete has assisted the team by MC’ing a number of fundraisers for us over the last 4 years and we can’t thank him enough for all he has done.

Sir Bob Jones was the guest speaker, and as is his way his colourful speech resulted in a wide range of audience reactions!

Peta Mathias MNZM designed a beautiful menu, prepared by the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron Head Chef and staff.

Dean Barker and Sean Fitzpatrick ONZM sent video messages of good luck to the team, which were very much appreciated.

Thank you to everybody who attended and generously pledged a donation or were successful at the auction.  Kiwi Gold Sailing raised enough money to compete in the Rio Test event and train in Sydney against the Australian Para-Sailing Sonar team in July and August.

Thank you to our all the Auction Donors and event suppliers.
