A heartfelt thank you!
It’s hard to believe that over a period of six weeks, we managed to visit five fabulous locations - five amazing house tours, showcasing 50 stunning homes, along with hundreds of volunteers and thousands of happy tour goers.
A lot of planning and hard work goes into the success of these tours, but it is not without the generosity of the homeowners who so graciously open their hearts and homes in support of such a great cause. We also could not do it without the lovely volunteers - our brand ambassadors who happily don their NZ House & Garden aprons and give up their time to help run things on the day. So thank you to each and every one of you for your contribution.
NZ House & Garden is committed to donating $60,000 cash as well as a $100,000 advertising campaign to promote the organisation’s Pink Ribbon Street Appeal and Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaigns.
In addition, $15,304.62 was raised through one-off donations in ticket sales, raffles, bake sales and proceeds from apron sales and 39 Pink Ribbon Breakfast sign ups were.
That’s an impressive result, and one we are really proud of! We hope to see you all next year at the 2019 NZ House & Garden House Tours. We’re already hard at work scouting new locations...we might even be visiting Oamaru next! But shhhhh…!
