The Hon Simon Bridges, Member of Parliament for Tauranga MP, is hosting a dinner for two people at either Parliament in Wellington, Tauranga or potentially, Auckland.

All proceeds will go to the registered charity Koru Care NZ and will help the three children from Bay of Plenty participating in its 2019 programme.

Koru Care NZ helps to 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.

They just need someone to wave the magic wand and by winning this auction, you will.

The dinner: The dinner will be a three-course dinner for two persons with the Hon Simon Bridges MP in his capacity as Member of Parliament for Tauranga. There are two potential locations being either Bellamys at Parliament in Wellington or a restaurant in Tauranga (Auckland may be possible too).

The auction winner will need to arrange a mutually agreeable date and time with the Mr Bridges office. For Parliament (Wellington), this would be during a sitting week between 6pm and 730m (Tuesday and Wednesday). Outside of a sitting week, in Tauranga (or potentially Auckland), it would be based around a suitable diary space.

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 involved.

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.
