We are representing the Burnside High School Rowing team. As part of our fundraising efforts to send a group of rowers to the Secondary Schools National Championships Maadi Cup at Lake Ruataniwha  we are participating in the Oarsome O’Fare Silent Auction at McKenzie & Willis on 16 February 2018.

The Oarsome O’Fare is an annual event where adults support the fourteen rowing schools in Christchurch and come together to raise funds. The Silent Auction starts at 5.30pm and finishes at 7.30pm, during this time people move around all the schools and silent bid on the items that are of most interest them. At 7.30 the last bidding is the winner of the auction and money and items are exchanged.

There are at least 2,000 people who attend this function each year, so the bidding sheets and goods donated are seen by many people.

In exchange for your donation of services / goods, we will advertise and promote your business at our stand for all to see.

Without the generosity from you / your business this fundraiser could not take place.  

Thank you in anticipation of your response.

From all of the Burnside High School Rowers
