Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton gives away Chiefs tickets

Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton gives deserving families a night out at the Chiefs rugby games

To celebrate their 2nd Birthday Hamilton-based Argent Motor Lodge is giving away Chiefs home game rugby tickets to deserving families.

“Being our second birthday we wanted to be the ones giving the presents - so after much thought, we decided upon giving away Chiefs home game rugby tickets to one deserving family for each home game. It’s our chance to celebrate with more than just us and our guests, but also the wider community,” said Clare Gallagher, co-owner of Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton.

“Turning two is a milestone for Argent Motor Lodge and we are very proud to be a part of a dynamic business sector here in the Waikato and to be in a position to be able to give a little back to the community that we are also a part of,” says Clare.

“Before each home game we will be posting on our Facebook page 'nominate a deserving family' which gives everyone the chance to put forward someone they believe should be treated to a night out at the Chiefs rugby games. So far the response has been fantastic and for Richard and I, the making of a family’s day is very heartwarming and we are excited to be able to do it,” says Clare.

If you know a deserving family head to Argent Motor Lodge’s Facebook page to nominate them.

This is not the first act of social giving Argent Motor Lodge has been involved with. Argent Motor Lodge sponsor New Zealand’s top female athlete Camille Buscomb. She is the champion 3000m title holder in New Zealand and is second currently over 1500 metres. Her major discipline is the 1500m and is ultimately the event in which she hopes to excel.

Argent Motor Lodge also recently got the seal of approval from international supermodel Kylie Bax, who stayed at the luxury lodge, calling it an “extension of my own home. It was warm, clean and friendly.”

With its superior accommodation and state-of-the-art design, Argent Motor Lodge is perfectly located for those on business, or for people visiting family and friends at the Waikato Hospital or Braemar Hospitals.
