Media Release 26th February 2008

Stars dancing for Plunket on Children's Day!

Dancing with the Stars partners, Monty Betham and Nerida Jantti, are performing their spectacular routines at a Children's Day event on Sunday March 2nd at Government House in Wellington.

The event, hosted by Every Child Counts - a coalition formed by Barnardos, Plunket, UNICEF, Save the Children, and the Institute of Public Policy at AUT, will be MC'd by Meyer Peteli and Shane Cortese, star of Shortland Street and Outrageous Fortune.

Children's Day, Te Ra O Te Tamariki, is a national, non-commercial day to celebrate how special and important our children are. This year's theme highlights the magic of new experiences.

To provide some new experiences for children, Monty and Nerida will also be hosting a dance workshop for children at the Children's Day event at Government House.
