Tui Brewery Raises Money For a Good Cause

Tui Brewery raised over $1000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation on Saturday following its third annual Toki Truck Stop Show & Shine.
The family-friendly event attracted almost 100 trucks from all around New Zealand while around 400 visitors walked through the gates of Tui HQ at Mangatainoka to see the big rigs.

“It was great to see lots of families out looking around and a fabulous free event to take the children to during the school holidays,” says Tui HQ manager Jenny Holmes.

The event featured an impressive truck display with prizes being awarded for the biggest rig; best working truck; best company truck; show & shine; best independent truck and the best dressed driver. In addition there was live entertainment, free brewery tours and food provided by a number of community groups.

“I just want to say thank you to all the sponsors, the community stalls and the local band that made this day really memorable … without them we wouldn’t be able to have this event,” says Jenny.

The event raised $1200 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and comes hot on the heels of March’s “Bring the Keg Back to the Brewery” at Tui HQ which raised money for Pahiatua On Track, a local group fundraising for the community, and the Drought Shout held for farmers affected by the drought.
