Taking place at The Cordis Hotel, Auckland, on 14th October 2023, The Grocery Charity Ball is recognised for its continued efforts towards charitable endeavors.
The Grocery Charity Ball will be supporting the Graeme Dingle Foundation this year, a nationwide youth development charity. The funds collected will benefit over 22,000 Tamariki under the Foundation’s Kiwi Can programme. This initiative targets primary school children, teaching them core values like integrity, respect, and resilience.
Springfree has made a notable contribution to the event's live auction: a trampoline valued at $2,000. Megan McKenzie, Springfree General Manager, emphasized the alignment between the values of the Graeme Dingle Foundation and Springfree.
“We believe kids learn best when they foster relationships and resilience through play and having fun. Springfree offers every child a platform to acquire new abilities, emphasising that with perseverance, they can achieve whatever they are determined to master. I see the same values in the programmes the Graeme Dingle Foundation provides” she said.
To mark this joyous occasion, Kandoo Kiwi from Kiwi Can graced us with his presence at Springfree last week. Let's jump towards making a difference!
The Graeme Dingle Foundation, established by Sir Graeme Dingle and Jo-anne Wilkinson in 1995, aims to uplift New Zealand's youth, having impacted over 350,000 young Kiwis. This notable youth charity offers school-based programs, and for every $1 invested, New Zealand reaps nearly $8 in societal benefits, as per a 2019 Infometrics report.
