Good Group continue their support for Halberg Disability
Good Group showcased their support for the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation on Thursday at the annual Halberg Awards. Good Group donated an exclusive cocktail evening for 100 guests on the deck at Harbourside Ocean Bar Grill in Auckland for the annual charity auction. The generous prize was auctioned for an impressive $19,000 and all proceeds went to the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation to raise funds for the lives of physically disabled young people, their families and communities by enabling them to participate in sport.
This is the second year Good Group has supported the foundation by donating a prize for the charity auction. Russell Gray, director of premium hospitality group Good Group, says "we are very pleased to be able to support the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation. This started with our attendance at last year’s Halberg Sports Awards where we agreed to contribute a significant auction item which culminated in raising substantial funds for the Trust. The auction item is a cocktail function at Harbourside for 100 guests. We are delighted to support something we really believe in and our support will continue in the future."
