WE MADE IT!!!!! WOOOHOOO!
38 MONTHS AGO
Thank you so very very much to all our friends, family, supporters and - perhaps most of all - to the Bat-members themselves, who dug deep, put their hands in their own pockets, and invited anyone they could think of to help us in our next grand endeavour.
We are currently sitting at just over 100% of our target, at $10,035.
I know there are still a bunch of people who want to donate and haven't gotten around to it yet, or who are waiting until payday on Wednesday - and for those people (or anyone else who wants to get involved) - it's not too late.
You can still donate to the Boosted campaign until midnight on Wednesday - and we'd be very very happy if you did - the more we raise, the more awesome we can make the Carnival Zone...
Thank you to:
Alison Green, Alan Shuker, H Carmody, Miett Fear, Anonymous, Darryn Sigley, Graham Dwyer, Charlene Hillyard, Cedric Papion, Barin Das, Anonymous, Anonymous, Gordon Cessford, Simon Bowden, Geoff Simmons, Anonymous, Nick Simcock, Keith Ferguson, Jane Watson-Baker, Jenny Lea, Kate McAlpine, Anonymous, Deborah Harris, Nina Grattan, Alexandra Lutyens, Annette Paul, Michael James, Anonymous, Paula Warren, Lisa Leask, Trish Sullivan, Anonymous, Lizzie Young, Jeanette Spicer, Lise Hutcheon, Ros Nelson Breast Limited Pochin, Dana Mitchell, Zelda Gilbert, Anonymous, J Dwane, Anonymous, Anonymous, Carin Sundstedt, Megan Hand, Alex Gough, Martin Horspool, Hamish Garland, Anonymous, Anonymous, Carol Green, Tabitha Arthur, plus a whole host of other Wellington Batucada members who threw money in the hat for us yesterday (I wish I'd written all your names down!).
...and a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to our fantastic Match Donor, Mr Chris Parkin from the Museum Art Hotel who has matched our $5k dollar for dollar to give us $10k in total.
YOU ALL ROCK.
Here's a picture for you of a whole host of very happy Samba people - from all over New Zealand - who will be playing together for your entertainment and listening/dancing pleasure at CubaDupa next March.
