A Golden Bay drinks with mates ends up in an ‘Impressive Achievement’




Tremendous fundraising effort in Takaka for Hawke's Bay Farmers started from a drink with mates



On Friday night 24 March saw the first ever Golden Bay Farmers Bull fundraising event take place at the Golden Bay Recreation Centre. A fundraising event for the Hawke's Bay farmers.


The evening event was huge success and a lot of fun and entertainment was had by all.


A massive total of just under $40,000 was raised for farmers affected by Cyclone Gabrielle.


The organisers thanked everyone that came along, to everyone that gave something, to NBS for helping with behind the scenes, to PGG Wrightsons for the massive massive support, Liqourland for running the bar and Wholemeal Cafe for the amazing food.


Shocked organisers, Stacey Strange, Tristan Strange and Phil Smith were happy, thrilled, shocked again and were very emotional at the support of the Golden Bay Community and businesses in achieving a wonderful amount of money in the fundraising for the Hawke's Bay farmers. 


“From an idea born while having a drink with mates to this is outrageous amount of money,” said Phil Smith he “thanked everyone.”
