WOW® Preview Tickets Support Purple Cake Day

Purple Cake Day supporters and World of WearableArt™ fans can enjoy the best of both worlds this year by being among the first to see WOW® 2014 and helping kids at the same time.

Local charity event Purple Cake Day uses creative activities and events that get kids participating as ambassadors to raise awareness of the education needs of children in Haiti, Nepal and Kenya.

Purple Cake Day is excited to offer people the opportunity to snap up 200 premium tickets to the 2014 WOW® Preview Show in Wellington on Wednesday 24 September. Part of the proceeds from each ticket will go to Purple Cake Day.

Since it began 26 years ago, The World of WearableArt™ (WOW®) Awards Show has grown to become New Zealand’s single largest arts show. In a breathtaking spectacular of dance, theatre, music and art, incredible garments are brought to life in a two hour non-stop spectacular.

In 2013, WOW® officially endorsed Purple Cake Day as a Charity of Choice, an honour shared by only two other charities. Purple Cake Day is also thrilled to have Dame Suzie Moncrieff as Patron.

Dame Suzie Moncrieff has generously supported Purple Cake Day since it began in 2010. “Purple Cake Day is doing something very significant by raising awareness, both locally and internationally, of the hardship children face around the world. In a world full of despair and little hope for many children, Purple Cake Day is a ray of sunshine”, says Dame Suzie.

Purple Cake Day Founder Emily Sanson-Rejouis says, “We are very proud and grateful to have the support of Dame Suzie and WOW®. The Preview Show tickets sales contribute a substantial sum towards our total fundraising for the year enabling us to make a difference in the lives of children without good education opportunities in Haiti, Nepal and Kenya. We know first hand, that these are children hungry to learn, who want to become doctors, engineers, pilots, teachers, researchers, IT programmers. Without an education they have no future, but with the support of WOW® they get the opportunity to go to school and this changes not only their lives but that of their families and communities also. We need more people and organizations like Dame Suzie and WOW® to step up to the challenge and get involved. Education is a universal human right but its something that many children around the world are not able to realise. It's easy to be complacent and ignorant about the scale of this problem outside of our own environment, but there are things we can do and should do to help children born into poverty. Providing them with education opportunities, like what we are able to do through Purple Cake fundraising, is relatively easy for us and is life changing for them.”

Tickets to the WOW® preview show are available through the Purple Cake Day website for $100. People are urged to get in fast as the tickets will sell quickly. www.purplecakeday.org/get-involved/wow
