Southern PR will host its second women's charity function
next week, again raising money for the New Zealand Breast
An afternoon tea at the Crowne Plaza's threesixty restaurant
will raise funds for the Pink Ribbon initiative, with all
money raised going towards funding breast cancer research
projects and medical grants for those affected.
Southern PR director Fiona Woodham said she was ''thrilled''
to host another afternoon tea for the charity - last year's
event raised $2227.
''We're looking forward to putting on another fabulous
function for a great cause which is very close to my heart.
''We decided last year to do something a little bit different
to the many Pink Ribbon breakfasts that are held around New
Zealand and the afternoon tea idea was such a huge success
we've continued on with that tradition.
''We're encouraging all the local ladies to come along, enjoy
a cup of tea, coffee or something a bit stronger, and maybe
even win an amazing prize. It's a lovely fun afternoon and
all for a very worthwhile cause.''
The event will be held on May 29 from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.
Entry costs $10, to go to the cause along with money raised
through raffles and a silent auction.
Businesses interested in attending or supporting the Pink
Ribbon afternoon tea are encouraged to contact Southern PR on
