Civic Reception For Americas Cup


Friday, 3 March 2000


Mayor of Auckland City, Chris Fletcher, will host a 'thank you' reception in the Town Hall tomorrow (Saturday) preceding the America's Cup Parade and official prize giving.

Guests at the reception will include Team New Zealand, members of the Prada challenge, Prime Minister Rt. Hon Helen Clark, and Peter Montgomery, together with representatives of groups involved in organising and supporting the Louis Vuitton Cup series and America's Cup 2000.

Chris Fletcher says the reception is an opportunity to thank all those who have contributed to these truly great events. "Auckland has had a flying start into the new millennium and the America's Cup has been largely responsible for that," she said.

"The reception is an opportunity to acknowledge and thank those involved - both on the water and behind the scenes - on behalf of the people of Auckland and New Zealand.

The Queen Street parade following the civic reception is a chance for Aucklanders to show their thanks and support for the outstanding success of the America's Cup and celebrate Team New Zealand's victory."

Chris Fletcher said she would also thank councils from across the Auckland region for assisting with the parade, together with the principal sponsor of the parade, Compaq Computer New Zealand Ltd.


The media are invited to attend the civic reception starting at 11 am tomorrow in the Town Hall concert chamber.
