A Night with the STARS

A Night with the STARS

“A Night with the STARS”, a glamorous charity dinner featuring the singing talents of some of New Zealand’s best (and worst) celebrity singers will be held on Tuesday 29th April, 2003 at The Sheraton Auckland Hotel and Towers at 7pm.

Hamish Carter, Katrina Divine, Paul Ego, Eva Euguenieva, Ian Ferguson, Sophia Hawthorn, Amie Hewitt, Katrina and Rebecca Hobbs, Rachel Huljich, Barbara Kendall, Hamish McKay, Kees Meeuws, Waka Nathan, Hine Wehi Mohi, Suzanne Paul, Dick Quax, Mark Robinson, Alison Roe, Blair Strang, John Sumner, Tony Veitch, John and Elizabeth Walker will join in the evening’s fun and entertainment.

Gary McCormack is Master of Ceremonies, and more than 500 guests are expected to attend this event from a wide cross section of business, political and arts communities to help raise funds for The Prince’s Trust. The Prince’s Trust provides life skills and work experience programs to disadvantaged and unemployed youth.

Rosie Horton, Acting Chairperson of The Prince’s Trust N.Z says that ‘ensuring that our young people are properly equipped to cope with the demands of a modern society and the needs of their families and the wider community is our joint responsibility. Since 1995 the Trust has assisted 1500 young people into employment or targeted training towards employment. Of these, 1100 have been placed into longterm stable jobs. Currently the Trust assists an average of 560 young people on an annual basis. Of these, it is expected that 300 will be placed into work. The annual saving to the State for the 1100 people placed into work is estimated to be $8,250,000.00.’

New Zealanders keen to spend a night with the stars can purchase tickets to the dinner by calling Toni Durant on (09) 376 9247. Tickets cost $250 per person, $2,500 for a table of 10, or $2,500 for a celebrity table (9 seats and a star).
