We’ve tallied up the funds and are incredibly excited to announce we raised $14,273.25 for Breast Cancer Cure!!!

A MASSIVE thank you to all our amazing sponsors, supporters and donors. We couldn’t have done it without you! Here are some highlights from our six week campaign …

* We had a fantastic fundraiser luncheon with Shortland Street star Shane Cortese and the truly inspirational Kamya Ghose (aka Queen Zaria), a breast cancer survivor and entrepreneur. There was champagne, goodie bags and spot prizes galore. Thank you Baretta for hosting us!
