Glitz and Glam raises over $20,000.

By Pauline Stewart.

The work to raise funds for the Mammogram machine for Mercury Bay just keeps on coming. This major joint Lions Club project, led by Mike Brown of Whitianga Lions to raise $350,000 has spread throughout the whole of Mercury Bay. Last Wednesday, 19 April, The Mercury Bay Business Association joined with Ricky Singh (pictured with Tyree Connor), Director of Salt Restaurant and Whitianga Hotel, to organise, offer and present Glitz and Glam – summary, a glittering success. The men never looked so good. As for the women, they always glam up amazingly. The evening programme was an auction led by Rob and Tyree Connor with drinks amidst gorgeous décor at Whitianga Hotel followed by a classy meal at Salt Restaurant with exceptional music and entertaining insights from the guest speaker, Andrew Fagan plus our very own local musician, Stu Pedley. With 120 people dressed in their finery, all pre-booked, this very happy and vibrant evening raised over $20,000 for the Mammogram project.
