Heart felt thank you from Event Coordinator-Bronwyn Ririnui

As the curtain draws to a close on yet another successful edition of A Taste of Matarangi festival, I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for each and everyone who contributed to making this event a resounding success.

The organizing committee’s dedication, hard work and meticulous planning have been the backbone of this festival.  They have volunteered countless hours of brainstorming, organizing, coordinating bringing this event to fruition. I am truly grateful for their support.

The support from our generous sponsors has been instrumental in making this festival a reality. Their belief in our cause and willingness to invest in our community have enabled us to create an unforgettable experience for all who attend. We truly couldn’t do this without them.

The generosity from our raffle and auction contributors has added an extra layer of excitement and anticipation to A Taste of Matarangi festival. Their contributions have truly made a difference, delighting attendees and raising much-needed funds for our community initiatives. We cannot thank them enough for their support and generosity.

It is with immense pride and heart felt appreciation that I extend a heartfelt thank you to our dedicated volunteers, who have played an indispensable role in bringing this festival to life. Their generosity, kindness and spirit of volunteerism have left an indelible mark on our community, and for that, we are eternally grateful.

To each of the musicians and vendors who contributed their talents and flavours to A Taste of Matarangi. Your presence and dedication played an instrumental role creating the vibrant tapestry of sights, sounds and flavours that defined this year’s event. For this we are grateful.

And finally, to all our wonderful participants. On behalf of the entire organizing committee, vendors, volunteers, musicians and sponsors. We extend warmest thanks to each and every one of you who attended and contributed to making this year’s festival and unforgettable experience.

It is our collective efforts and shared passion that we are able to come together to celebrate all that makes our community special.

Thank you, once again
