Description

The Hon Grant Robertson, the Member of Parliament for Wellington Central, has kindly agreed to host a dinner for two people at Parliament.

All proceeds of the auction will go to the charity Koru Care NZ, which for over 35-years, has helped bring dreams alive for kids who have drawn the short straw. In some cases, they have cancer, kidney disease or heart problems, in other cases they have lost the use of their limbs or have serious congenital abnormalities.

The one thing they all share is the capacity to smile, laugh and create good memories; they just need someone to wave the magic wand and by winning this auction, you will.

The dinner: The dinner is a three-course dinner for two persons with the Hon Grant Robertson, Member of Parliament for Wellington Central at Bellamys by Logan Brown within Parliament, Wellington.

The auction winner will need to arrange a mutually agreeable date and time with Grant's office during a Parliamentary sitting week (Tuesday or Wednesday evening between 6pm and 7.30pm).

It will be a very special night to remember!

About Koru Care NZ: Koru Care NZ makes dreams come true for sick and disabled kids. It is well known for delivering dreams in the form of memorable overseas trips including to California and the Gold Coast. Both are dream destinations and each group consists of 26 children and 15 volunteer caregivers. Your support will help meet the many costs.

The USA trip is 2 weeks in duration and the Gold Coast is for 8 days. The children that participate on the Koru Care Gold Coast Adventure are generally chosen as they are too ill to handle the long-distance travel to California or the long days that this trip has. Closer to home, Koru Care NZ puts on events for the children with its annual pantomime and Christmas Harbour Cruise and picnic.

Koru Care NZ also provides grants for the cost of flights for children that require medical treatment overseas that is not available in New Zealand.

    In case it isn't clear - this auction is for two people to dine with Grant, NOT for two people including Grant - Thanks Yachtie62 for kicking this auction off :)Seller comment Tuesday, 6 August 2019

    And another clarification (I'm getting anxious with the number of out-of-towners bidding....) This meal is in Wellington and the auction is only for the dinner. You will need to arrange transport/accommodation at own cost if you aren't lucky enough to know a local. Who knows, if you bid enough, we may swing you a night in our spare roomSeller comment Tuesday, 6 August 2019

    I have asked Koru Care and their response it that normally funds go to the general Koru Care account that supports all of their efforts, but if the auction winner has a special preference that the money is specifically earmarked, then they will oblige. Many thanks!crohampark(421)• Wednesday, 7 August 2019

    This auction will cover the cost for the dinner for 2 guests. That said, Bellamys is a reasonably sized establishment, and if you are able to secure a big enough table on the night and prepared to cover the additional cost, I am sure that could be arrangedcrohampark(421)• Wednesday, 7 August 2019

    Thank you for your question. No this meal is not tax payer funded. When our son first approached Grant, he was asked if he would participate by hosting the meal at Bellamys. We told Grant we would pay for the meal (for all people present). There was some spirited conversation as Grant offered to personally cover the cost and to be honest, I am not sure where this landed in the end but please be assured it is not the tax payer.crohampark(421)• Wednesday, 7 August 2019

    Hi, I didn't remove your question but it did mysteriously disappear before I could answer it last night. I put it down to the excessive levels of electromagnetic waves in the atmosphere at present. I would say that should you win, any courteous conversation over dinner would be welcomed.crohampark(421)• Wednesday, 7 August 2019

    Some of the political questions are just sad. This man has agreed to give up his time to help a fantastic not for profit charity. Thank you for this auction, as a mother of a Koru Care child in 2019 I want to thank you, and good luck to who ever wins I am sure you will have a fantastic dinner xxxsugarfree3(13)11:04 am, Sun, 11 Aug

    Thanks for your lovely supportive words. I know that Koru Care trips are such a wonderful incentive for sick children and spirit lifting. Grant is a great local MP and agreed to do this when requested by a constituent - nothing more than a good hearted effort for the children of this countrycrohampark(421)• Sunday, 11 August 2019
