We're thrilled and extremely proud to advise that our founder Hinewehi Mohi was named as a semi finalist in the 2013 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year Awards.
The semi finalists in each category were selected from a diverse range
of sectors across the entire country including innovation and achievements at a national and global level in the fields of medical and science innovation, ecology, musical therapy, penal reform and the protection of our national heritage. All have been judged to be extraordinary individuals and community groups making a positive difference to New Zealand and often also to the world at large.
Around 200 people joined us for a fun night's entertainment and celebration of music and lost youth on Saturday October 27th at Jubilee Hall, Parnell.
With the first band The Verandahs kicking off the evening and getting a few bodies on the dance floor, the competition was fierce. A guest appearance by Debbie Harwood later in the evening, increased the standards and competition even further. However a later entrant Strange Brew with their energetic performance of the Billy Idol hit Rebel Yell got most of the crowd onto the dance floor for their entire performance. Thus it was no surprise when they were named the 2012 Raukatauri Battle of the Bands winner - a popular choice by both the judge and the crowd.
lost and another 7kg to go. Our Chairman Sean has been hitting the gym and cutting
the calories over the past few months, with astonishing success. With all of
the proceeds from this Olympic effort going to Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre,
Sean has committed to continue his weight loss challenge until the end of
September and reach his target weight loss goal of 25kg.
So there's still plenty of time to sponsor Sean and support a worthy cause. To date Sean has raised over $3,000 with every $1 going directly to provide music therapy to hundreds of special needs children and young adults.
motivate and encourage Sean to knock off those last difficult seven kgs by
sponsoring him now, either a few dollars for every kilo lost or perhaps boost his
motivation levels higher, with a $100 one off donation for hitting his 25kg
weight loss target.
Please email how much you wish to donate for every kilogram Sean loses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and postal address.
The lights dimmed, the doors closed and a very excited Willow Park Primary School on Auckland's North Shore, anticipated the arrival of the Babysitters Circus for a special lunchtime concert last Friday August 17. The winner of our May NZ Music Month win a concert competition, Willow Park Primary School were treated to a one hour, exclusive and very loud concert of a lifetime. As you can see from the photos below a great time was had by all, including several teachers who turned out to be big Babysitters Circus fans.
Our sincere thanks to our ambassador Jason Kerrison and Babysitters Circus for their time on the day and their continuing support of the work we do here at the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre.
As part of NZ Music Month in May, Auckland schools were invited to participate in a fundraising idea at their school, with one lucky school winning a lunchtime concert with The Babysitters Circus (Jason Kerrison (OPSHOP), Maitreya, Tim Skedden (The Unsuitables) and Selwyn Leaf. Jason is a Music Ambassador for the Centre and is one of the many New Zealand musicians who support the work of Raukatauri.
The winning school, Willow Park Primary, dressed up as rockstars and raised a fantastic $618 for the Centre. And as the photos testify, had a great time with it!
All proceeds from this competition went to the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre.
