Saturday 8 Dec saw a very large crowd of Ronald McDonald house supporters gather at the Port Hills Polo event at Tai Tapu. After an early morning shower of rain the day became warmer and warmer. Sunhats and glasses were soon a necessity while we watched the talented polo teams play.
The main purpose of the day was to raise funds for this wonderful charity known as Ronald McDonald house . The house is a place were families can stay together while children receive treatment in hospital.
Tigers Den was delighted to be able to supply 2 nights of luxury accommodation for the charity auction . We at Tigers Den were just delighted to have something that we could share with others.
All of 350 guest we seated for the paid table event lunch which was a great success. Food and drinks all donated by friends of Ronald McDonald House .
All in all the event has raised over $40,000 dollars for the house. Tigers Den was overwhelmed by the staggering generosity of the bidders and under bidders at the auction especially when the closing bid for the 2 night package at Tigers Den Luxury Guest Lodge finished at $5000 dollars .
We would like to thank everyone who helped make this event such a success . This money raised will supply many nights accommodation for needy families while there children receive treatment. Well done Christchurch and Ronald McDonald House.
Team At Tigers Den.
