Hits $9000.oo on Trade Me Charity Auction

After only 2 days on Trade Me the charity bidding for the exclusive meet & greet with Elton John at the Wellington Concert on Dec 6 has hit an astounding $9000 and looks like climbing a lot higher.

Closing on Tuesday at 9pm the amount that the NZ AIDS Foundation will receive, along with separate donations via their 0900 number, will make this a unique and very welcomed opportunity the organisation rarely gets.

The online event has been organised by VISA, Capital C: Concerts and Trade Me with eht support of the Intercontinental Hotel Wellington.

Over 30,000 seats Sold

With just under 3 weeks remaining to Concert date on Dec 6 at the Westpac Stadium Wellington over 30,000 seats have been sold. With the additional release of seats by the promoter this week super seats are still available across a range of zones.
