$28,000 Raised at our Dancing with the Stars Fundraising Challenge

Home & Family’s very own Dancing With The Stars took place on October 29th at Mashina Lounge of the Christchurch Casino. The last of the sponsorship is in and we are thrilled to announce that $28,000 was raised on the night for Home & Family Society! Every dollar of the $28,000 will go towards helping to provide our much needed services in the community.

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to make the event so special, we couldn’t have done it with you…

Firstly we would like to thank our dancers for their hard work and effort over the 6 weeks, our four amazing dance teachers for turning our non dancers into professionals, our lovely judges on the night, Jo Parker, Jonny Williams, Kristie Boyd & Meg Gregson, our fantastic MC, Ali Harper, our celebrity Guests Chrystal Chenery & Dani Robinson, the Home & Family staff, the Christchurch Casino for their generous support of the event, and finally thank you to all of the wonderful sponsors and guests who donated, voted and cheered on the night. We hope you enjoyed the experience as much as we did… and we hope to see you again at next year’s event!
