Do You Know of Someone Who is a Hero to a Kid?
Nominate Them to Attend the Heroes for Kids LUNCHEON!
Variety – The Children’s Charity and Friends of Variety will host a Heroes For Kids Luncheon on Tuesday 18 June, 2013 at Villa Maria Estate.
This special occasion is to celebrate the caregivers – often parents and relatives - of sick, disabled or disadvantaged Kiwi Kids who deserve a little something special for themselves. Guests will be treated to a three course lunch, a complimentary glass of Villa Maria Estate wine, a goodie bag and musical entertainment.
If you know someone in your community who deserves to be recognised as a Kiwi Kid Hero and pampered for an afternoon, please nominate them by visiting www.variety.org.nz before 31 May.
Tere, whose Great Grandson is in her care, earns just enough to cover rent, food and utilities. She says she would never take herself out for lunch as she sees this as a luxury.
“This luncheon is such a special treat! I’ve never been to Villa Maria and I’m really excited about meeting other parents and caregivers”, she said.
The luncheon is an initiative by Friends of Variety, who want to show their support of caregivers by offering an afternoon of fun, appreciation and a little pampering. Friends of Variety’s Aline Sandilands said, “We want to celebrate the unsung heroes in our community and what better way to do this than to share a meal and an afternoon of fun and entertainment and let them know we appreciate all they do for Kiwi Kids”.
Each table will be hosted by one of Variety’s celebrities and sponsored by organisations that support Variety, and there is no cost to the selected caregivers to attend.
